Qatar retained its position as the safest country globally as per the 2020 mid-year Crime Index by Numbeo, the world’s largest user-contributed database on cities and countries. 133 countries have been included in the ranking.

Qatar's outstanding record is considered as an extension of its achievements in the past years of 2015-2019, where it is achieving the first place globally in 2017 and 2019 while maintaining the first position in the Arab world during the period.

According to the classification rules of the report, countries are ranked in the reverse order, Qatar ranked 133rd in crime rate by registering the lowest crime rate with 11.90 points out of 100, stated Ministry of Interior (MOI) in a tweet.

In the safety index, Qatar ranked the first by scoring 88.10 points out of 100, in reverse of the Crime Index.

The Numbeo database has been publishing indices since 2009. The report takes into account the different types of crimes and their classification according to the laws on crimes, offenses, and violations.

Based on 'user-contribution'? And 254 entries? This isn't a scientific index at all. It's more like the user-reviews on Amazon.

While Qatar does not witness street crime which is no doubt is at its lowest, a high degree of white-collar crime does exist.. They do not fall within the bracket of "crime" and thus evade the statistics, but they do exits in painful numbers. The people involved in such "criminal" activities are the unscrupulous employers who know all the ways to keep themselves from coming into the grip of the law. They snatch (snatch is the right word as it is not stealing) the financial benefits of workers, send them home penniless after years of service to their companies.

Is the government aware of these activities? Yes, it is. But they are helpless as these players k-n-o-w how to play with the law and keep themselves safe. Not just that, the system in operation in Qatar gives the worker not much of a chance to get his rightful dues q-u-i-c-k-l-y. Should the case land up in the Sharia Court, it takes months to get a verdict during which period the worker stays without a job or a source of income while the employer rocks on his chair in his office or sleeps peacefully at home.

The Wage Protection Scheme (WPS) was a great step by the government and it brought smiles and lines of joy on the faces of workers. Unscrupulous employers shook and began paying salaries on time. But shortly after the shine of the system wore off, things returned to the same old ways. The crook employers had found ways to bypass the WPS.

True the National Human Rights Committee exists.Yes, they have an impressive office. But they are a toothless tiger. The MADLSA lacks the punch. They should be given so much powers that when an employee files a complaint at their office, it should send shudders up the spine of the employer.

Qatar Living gets to see only a fraction of the sufferings of employees at the hands of the employers. If the government seriously takes action against such unscrupulous employers who rob employees of their hard-earned money, and makes the actions taken against such employers public. Qatar will become the best country in the world to live in for many, many years to come.
