FIFA could be sued over its alleged complicity in the mistreatment of migrant workers hired for the 2022 World Cup. Newspaper reports say the beleaguered organization is facing legal action in the Swiss courts.

According to a story published by the English newspaper "The Guardian" and reported in a number of other outlets, a legal challenge has been brought by the Netherlands Trade Union Confederation (FNV) on behalf of a Bangladeshi migrant worker called Nadim Sharaful Alam.

A letter sent to FIFA has reportedly given President Gianni Infantino three weeks to accept his organization's complicity and pay damages before the case will be taken to court.

Alam is thought to be seeking a relatively small amount, about 5,000 euros (5,500 US dollars), but should he be successful, it could open the door to hundreds of thousands of migrant workers to make similar claims and cost FIFA millions.
