Qatar:2 people are arrested and here is the reason
Although visa trade is an illegal practice in Qatar, it has not stopped people from engaging in it any way. This is especially prevalent in some Asian countries.
Qatar has been cracking down on people indulging in the practice and it has shown results. Meanwhile, people continue to indulge in it.
Yesterday, the country’s Criminal Investigation Department arrested at least two suspects on charges of running fake companies for visa trade by exploiting the names of firms owned by some citizens, reported Gulf Times.
According to reports, a complaint was filed by a citizen on suspicion that one of his employee, in coordination with outsiders, was trading in visas.
Authorities conducted a thorough investigation and found that two people were establishing fake companies under the names of citizens and using those firms to obtain visas in the pretext of recruiting workers, according to The Peninsula.
They were then selling these visas, which they got under the fake companies’ sponsorship, for money.
According to reports, the first defendant who was arrested was of an Asian nationality and at the time of arrest, had 11 stamps and documents belonging to different companies as well as some credit cards. The second and third defendants were Arab nationals, reported Qatar Tribune. Under interrogation, the accused confessed to have committed the crimes. They were referred to the competent authorities to complete the procedures and bring them to trial.
