For almost two years, Qatar has been preparing to host this Congress, which is expected to have 6,000 to 7,000 delegates participating, to ensure that this year's UNCCPCJ
is a successful one," the Ministry of Interior's (MoI) Director of Public Relations and Organising Committee Member Colonel Abdullah Khalifa al Muftah said.
The delegates who participated in the preparatory meeting affirmed that it was highly useful in the context of preparations for the 13th UNCCPCJ
, adding that the issues discussed were of great importance as they related to successful programmes in the implementation of policies and strategies, comprehensive crime prevention and criminal justice in order to strengthen the rule of law at the national and international levels.
The aim of the meeting is to exchange views on the draft report on the contribution the upcoming UNCCPCJ
can make to the discussions on the post-2015 development agenda.
