Unlicensed Qatar security companies face legal action

October 17, 2010

Qatar authorities are set to take legal action against 13 companies offering private security services without a proper licence.

Under Qatari laws, private security firms and the security guards working for them are required to have proper licences.

Ahmad Jassim Al Jefairi, the head of the interior ministry tasked with licensing the companies and guards, told Qatari media that the 13 companies were caught for running services illegally during an inspection drive launched to check the licences of private security firms.

The interior ministry last year warned in a massive media campaign private security firms to comply with the law and get official documents for their operations, he said.
