A special postage stamp has been issued by Qatar General Postal Corporation (Qpost), to commemorate the 13th UN Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, which is being held in Doha.

The stamps feature the logo of the event.

“The UN Congress in Qatar marks the 60th year of its inception and is unique with its record number of attendees and the first time that the Secretary General has opened the proceedings himself,” said Mr Abdullah Khalifa Al Muftah, Head of the Media Committee of the 13th UN Crime Congress.

“Issuing commemorative stamps – even in this age of digital communications – is a special way of immortalising the event and is part of the communication strategy to promote the Congress to a wider audience.”
