The situation involving the comedian Fábio Rabin, in Qatar, gained a new chapter. According to the portal ‘UOL‘, the country’s Supreme Committee contacted the Brazilian embassy in Doha to talk about the matter.
Fábio Rabin went to social media last Monday and said he suffered repression from Qatari authorities. Also according to the vehicle, the committee wanted to know if the comedian had made a formal complaint about the case, which did not happen.
The comedian was arrested for public drunkenness, which is prohibited in the country, even during the World Cup. The local police would have led the Brazilian to the ‘sobriety tent’, a space where drunk fans are taken.
– I’m glad I’m not dead. I was locked in a room with these guys, I turned on a live there and I think it saved me. There’s another guy who’s still there. I almost died because I tried to help the guy. I said: ‘This guy is with me too’. They did not say the reason for arresting us there. They said: ‘he’s sober’, and that’s all. They put me in a room and told me to smile. I was very afraid of losing my life – commented Rabin.
