Highlights from the speech of HE Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani at the closing session of 13th UN Crime Congress.

HE the Prime Minister and Interior Minister said that the Doha Declaration, which was accomplished through the long months of painstaking negotiations in Vienna shared commitment and strong political will to uphold the rule of law and the prevention crime in all its forms and manifestations, and developed a forward-looking and pragmatic approach, such as a quantum leap in the international community's efforts to prevent crime and criminal justice.

“We have agreed in the Doha Declaration on the programs and plans at the local, national, regional and international levels to implement our commitments in the Declaration during the next five years and to establish fair and humane systems of criminal justice and unify the joint international effort towards existing and future challenges, including the question of the relationship between the rule of law and sustainable development".

HE the Prime Minister and Interior added that nine days of the congress was full of rare joint international efforts, whereas politicians, senior legal experts, academics and representatives of governmental and non-governmental organizations, most of the United Nations specialized agencies participated with deliberations and debates and exchanged views and experiences to mobilize public opinion and make recommendations to fight crime and build a fair and equitable justice systems.

HE the Prime Minister and Interior Minister said that the State of Qatar has launched during the Congress a regional fund for the education and training of displaced and refugee children and young people. This initiative is part of the State's commitment to the integration of economic, social and cultural dimensions in crime prevention policies. He pointed out Qatar chose displaced people and refugees because they are victims of conflict and they are more exposed to crime and extremism than others "If you do not reach out to them."

His Excellency the hoped that this initiative will be an incentive for other countries to take similar initiatives to integrate economic, social and cultural dimensions in crime prevention policies and to speed up the elimination of ignorance and backwardness, poverty and unemployment, which are the kegs of crime and terrorism and all forms of extremism and violence.

Doha Crime Congress set a very high bar for the future : Yury Fedotov

In closing the 13th Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice in Doha today, the Executive Director of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, Yury Fedotov, said that the event had set a very high bar for the future, and that the key task now was to turn the Congress's Declaration into action.

"This Congress has provided a solid platform for the international community to recognize the tangible links between the rule of law and sustainable development. We must build on those links as we set our sustainable development agenda for the next 15 years," he said.

Mr. Fedotov noted the congress was the first to have the UN Secretary General, the President of the General Assembly and the President of the Economic and Social Council in attendance. It was also the first, in the 60-year history of crime congresses, to adopt its agenda early, to hold a dynamic youth forum and to pass the congress's declaration on the congress's first day. 

None of this could have been achieved, he said, without the "wisdom and farsightedness of the Qatari government who have, from the beginning of this long journey, been certain and steadfast about the direction of the congress".

Mr. Fedotov ended his speech with a call to action. He said, "As you take the journey back to your capitals and to your homes, I call on you, in the name of justice and fairness, and human rights, to turn this powerful document into the action that can help people…everywhere."
