Qatar security forces detained seven individuals of Arab nationality on charges of money laundering, and seized seven expensive vehicles that were supposed to be exported abroad.
The Qatari Ministry of Interior said that its operatives in the Economic and Cyber Crimes Combating Department arrested individuals while “attempting to launder illegally acquired money by buying luxury cars for cash and exporting them abroad.”
“After obtaining the necessary legal permits, we have seized the vehicles before being exported outside the country,” the ministry said, but did not mention the name and nationality of the detained seven suspected criminals.
The ministry through a video post on its twitter said that a team has been appointed to carry a thorough investigation on the case.
Their cases have been referred to the Public Prosecution for further necessary procedures.
