Portions of leaked report on workers' rights denied


05/17/2009 11:16 PM | WAM

Abu Dhabi: The Abu Dhabi Tourism Development and Investment Company has denied portions of a report by Human Rights Watch about alleged violation of workers' rights on Saadiyat Island.

Portions of the report were leaked.

The company, wholly owned by the Abu Dhabi Government, refuted the allegations in the report and asserted that workers involved with Saadiyat Island's infrastructure projects are assured their rights and are put up in workers' accommodations that are in compliance with international standards.

In a press conference, Bassem Terkawi, manager of the company's Public Relations and Events Department, said the leaks in the report, which is supposed to be announced tomorrow, is "inaccurate and lacks credibility".

"The report is untrue and the financial and living conditions of the 2,300 workers are fine," Terkawi said.

He said the company has allocated Dh1 billion to build an integrated labour city with all amenities to accommodate 20,000 workers in its first phase.

"We contacted the rights watchdog many times and asked it to provide us with any information or complaints submitted by workers for verifying and dealing with them transparently," he said.

"We provided the human rights organisation with the information and data it asked for on January 27. Since then, we have not received any information from the rights organisation, which was invited many times to visit the island and see the new labour city, which exceeds its counterparts in many countries all over the world," he added.
