December 11 on Twitter, Manon Aubry returned at length to these suspicions of corruption which splash the European Parliament. In reality, the MEP is personally committed to ensuring that a resolution on human rights violations in Qatar is voted on in the hemicycle.

On November 24, Manon Aubry therefore decides to film herself in her Brussels office and go behind the scenes of these negotiations that led to the final text. In a video titled “Scandal: Did Qatar Infiltrate the Negotiations?”, she recounts for six minutes the roadblocks of certain MEPs during discussions around amendments. And in particular the questioning of the 6,500 deaths on the construction sites of the World Cup, a figure relayed by the Guardian and which surely only translates a part of reality as we detail it here. “You have MPs here who come with the good word of Qatar and say ‘but no, there were only 37 deaths’, which is the official number of deaths declared by Qatar”denounces among other things the elected European.
