Qatar has been in the news for hosting the FIFA World Cup. Everything from the rules and regulations to the culture here is a matter of discussion. Separate guidelines have been issued for fans in Qatar, from drinking alcohol to wearing short clothes, gay people and non-married couples. Meanwhile, the incident of robbery with a female reporter has put the different way of working of the police here in front of everyone.
A female reporter in Argentina was robbed on the opening day of the FIFA World Cup. After this, she reached the police and told about the incident that happened to her. In response, the policeman said that security cameras have been installed in the entire city and soon the police will identify the robber and catch him. After this, the woman was surprised to hear what the policeman said.
The police asked the woman what punishment would you like her to get when she is caught. The question came as a surprise to the Argentinian woman. Because, in most countries of the world, there is a fixed punishment for crimes like theft and robbery, but in Qatar, the policeman was asking the victim woman to fix the punishment for the culprit.
The woman said, “I went to the police station and that’s when the cultural difference came to the fore. The policeman told me: ‘We have hi-tech cameras everywhere and we will track him (the thief) with facial recognition. When we find him, What do you want the system to do with them?”

She said, “What justice do you want? What punishment should we give him? Do you want him to be sentenced to five years in jail? Or do you want him to be sent out?”
Earlier in the FIFA World Cup, a Danish journalist was stopped by some people from making a video. However, later Qatar also apologized in this matter.
