LATE NIGHT EVICTION DRAWS IRE
Internal Security Forces (ISF) forcibly evacuated hundreds of low-income expat workers from Msheireb.
Amidst global outcry on the treatment of expat workers in the country, the ISF, under the directive of the Ministry of Municipality and Urban Planning, forcibly evacuated residents of the area, leaving them effectively homeless. According to a local new site, the families were allowed to remain on the condition that they would find alternative accommodation within the next few weeks. Reports suggest that evacuation notices were given to the residents but they were either not communicated effectively by the owners of the residences or ignored. The buildings in the area have been marked for demolition to make way for new construction but the ministry wouldn't comment on the nature of the developments that are meant to come up here. Msheireb Properties confirmed that the area in question is not part of their flagship Msheireb Downtown Doha project.
