Law /Qatar / Law No. 15 of 2011 concerning combating Human Trafficking

Trafficking in persons is criminalized in Qatar under Law No. 15 of 2011 on Combatting Human Trafficking, and punished with imprisonment for a maximum term of 7 years and a fine of up to 250,000 Qatar Riyals, and in particular aggravating circumstances, it can result in a maximum fine of 300,000 Qatar Riyals and up to 15 years imprisonment.

This law imports its definition of human trafficking from the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children, supplementing the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime. Art. 22 establishes the liability of legal persons for crimes of human trafficking committed by their employees or representatives in their name and for their interest.
