Amnesty International is calling on the Premier League to change the rules governing owners and directors. The campaign was launched after human rights activist Peter Tatchell was arrested in Qatar, following a protest. The campaigner's foundation claims he was a part of the first open LGBT+ protest in any Gulf state.

Peter Tatchell detained for protesting in Qatar

Human rights activist Peter Tatchell was detained on Tuesday morning in Qatar after staging a peaceful protest. The protest was in solidarity with LGBT people living in the Gulf state. He said he had feared being detained and physically abused by the police. Qatar has a history of discrimination against LGBT people, including the ban on gay marriage.

Human Rights Watch released a report detailing the abuse suffered by LGBTQ people in Qatar. The report documents six cases of severe beatings and five cases of sexual harassment. The government has denied these allegations. The World Cup is in Qatar and the government has faced criticism over the treatment of migrant workers. Some migrant workers have died while working for the tournament, while many complain about poor conditions, non-payment of wages, and overcrowded slum hostels.

Qatar denied the arrest claims. The Qatari embassy in London and the Qatari Interior Ministry denied that Peter Tatchell had been arrested. They say he was detained for almost an hour, but said he is free to protest. The protest was aimed at promoting equal treatment for women, gays and migrant workers in Qatar.

The arrest of Peter Tatchell is further proof of the ongoing sportswashing project in Qatar, which has led to widespread criticism of the country. The arrest also comes amid the rage of the Qatari emir against the criticism. The world's most prestigious sporting event, the World Cup, will be held in the Gulf state in 2020 and Fifa has spent billions on its preparations.

Cristiano Ronaldo returns to training with Manchester United

Cristiano Ronaldo has been pictured arriving back at Manchester United's Carrington training base. He is expected to have further showdown talks with United manager Erik ten Hag over his future. He missed the club's tour to Australia and Thailand. There are also rumours that the Portuguese international could leave the club. Napoli are one of the hotly-tipped destinations for Ronaldo. Manchester United are also believed to be considering an offer for the Portuguese forward.

The Manchester United manager says that it is unlikely that the player will be released in the near future. Despite this, it is impossible to rule out the possibility of a free transfer, which would see the Portuguese star leave the club on the final six months of his contract. In that case, his wages would be split between United and his loan club. Regardless, it's important to remember that top sport is all about today, not yesterday or tomorrow.

Cristiano Ronaldo returns to training with Manchester united on Tuesday after being suspended by the club for a game against Tottenham. The Portuguese striker was disciplined following a video game in which he refused to come on as a substitute. He was then dropped from the squad for Saturday's draw against Chelsea. He has since been in regular contact with Manchester United's coach, Erik ten Hag, who said that it is his duty to set standards in disciplinary action.

Manchester City wanted to sign Ronaldo, but United turned him down. The club's top target, but the Portuguese international opted to stay at United. The deal was worth EUR23 million over five years and is subject to international clearance. Ronaldo will be 41 when the last installment is due.

Amnesty International calls on Premier League to change rules on owners and directors' test

Amnesty International UK has called for a review of the Premier League's owners and directors' test. The test is currently inadequate for vetting the directors of English football clubs. The organisation argues that it should be changed to incorporate human rights considerations.

Amnesty has written to the Premier League chief executive Richard Masters to urge him to change the owners and directors' test. The organisation has argued that the current owners of Premier League clubs have a history of human rights violations. It said: "It is time for the Premier League to do a better job at protecting the human rights of its fans."

The owners and directors' test is a vital part of the English football industry. It determines which owners have the financial and legal resources to support their clubs. The current owners' test is based on financial resources and the criminal record of potential owners. The rules on this test are not strict but are designed to keep suspect characters from being able to control a football club. The rules are reviewed every season.

The review has already received backing from the government. There are high hopes that it will become law. A bill is expected to be included in the Queen's Speech. The new rules could be implemented soon, and it may even include an independent regulator.
