Qatar Airways accused of human rights abuses

“When Cesar Ferreira appealed his dismissal from Qatar Airways, he never imagined it would end in Doha’s rat infested abysmal third world jail”, explains Radha Stirling, founder of Due Process International.

Cesar made the journey to Qatar to work with the leading airline at Doha’s international airport. Although Cesar was popular with colleagues and management, he was unexpectedly dismissed. Seeing the decision as unfair, Cesar asked a few of his closest colleagues and managers to support his appeal which they did. It was this action alone that saw QA retaliate and report him as a criminal to the police for “breaching his contractual confidentiality”.

Cesar was jailed for two months for asking for his job back.
