Previously, Dubai Expo claimed that 200,000 laborers operated approximately 240 million hours in the building and construction of the site.

Despite the repeated inquiries from The Associated Press and journalists, Dubai Expo 2020 had never shown any all-around statistics on worker casualties, sufferings, or coronavirus infections before this massive news broke out. They had been inquired a gazillion times to share their statistics but reportedly, there was no response.

Before Expo 2020, the resolution from European Parliament reported that the corporations and construction firms were pressurizing and urging workers into signing and accepting untranslated papers that were the agreement documents.  Seizing the passports of foreign workers is also reported followed by the system of endangering the foreign workers to extreme laboring hours. The workers have been urged to work for several hours day and night in hazardous weather occurrences. These workers are provided with unsanitary accommodation which is another no-no from European Parliament.

After this resolution from European Parliament, the Expo 2020 representative Sconaid McGeachin came forward to a press conference after the first day of the Expo. She alleged that the data about the mentioned casualties were already accessible but it was not presented in detail. She also said the government would provide additional data about the fatalities later, at some anonymous time.

The AP formerly had frequently inquired for the data several times and received no reaction from the Expo 2020 authorities.

McGeachin furthermore admitted the fact that the authorities were familiar with possibilities about contractors “confiscating passports” and engrossing in unlikely “recruitment practices”. She also acknowledged that they knew about the workplace safety infractions on site.
