France opens probe into forced labour allegations in Qatar

Workers of QDVC, the Qatari branch of French construction giant Vinci, prepare cement in Doha on March 24, 2015French prosecutors said Saturday they had opened a preliminary probe into a lobby group’s claims that construction giant Vinci is using forced labour on building projects for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The investigation, which began about a fortnight ago, aims to verify allegations — denied by the French construction group — that have been made by the non-governmental group Sherpa, prosecutor Catherine Denis told AFP. A wider probe involving investigations in Qatar could be subsequently opened if found warranted, she added. Sherpa has filed a claim in a French court against Vinci and its Qatari subsidiary QDVC for “forced labour”, “servitude” and “concealment”.
