Organizing committee of the 13th UN CONGRESS ON CRIME PREVENTION: STAMPS MARK 13TH CRIME CONGRESS IN QATAR

DOHA, QATAR. 17 APRIL 2015.
In recognition of the its enduring relevance over the last 60 years and the
significance of this year's theme of promoting the rule of law in the service
of sustainable development, special postage stamps have been issued by the
Qatar General Postal Corporation (Qpost), to commemorate the 13thUN Congress
on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice being held in Doha from 12 to 19
April 2015.

The 13thUN Crime Congress stamps feature the logo of the 13thUN Crime
Congress.

"The UN Congress in Qatar marks the 60thyear of its inception and is unique
with its record number of attendees and the first time that the Secretary
General has opened the proceedings himself," said Mr Abdullah Khalifa Al
Muftah, Head of the Media Committee of the 13th UN Crime Congress. "Issuing
commemorative stamps - even at this age of digital communications - is a
special way of immortalizing the event and is part of the communication
strategy to promote the Congress to a wider audience."

This edition of the Congress is even more different than the others because
the State of Qatar also organized other related major events to further raise
public awareness on the issues of crime prevention and criminal justice.

Among these are the Doha Youth Forum on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice,
a student art competition, an exhibition on crime prevention products and
services and the setting up of a Knowledge Center on Crime at the conference
venue.

The State of Qatar's General Postal Corporation, established in 1963, issues
commemorative stamps for a variety of local and international occasions. For
stamp collectors, there are albums that contain graphics of all the stamps
issued from the beginning of the Postal Service in the State of Qatar in 1950
to the present time. Updated albums are issued when required to ensure that
there is a permanent record of all the stamps ever issued by the State of
Qatar, and by which future generations can look back with pride at their
country's history recorded in stamps.

Similarly, the UN issues stamps to commemorate special causes and events. The
first UN stamps were released on UN Day, 24 October 1951. The stamps have
been called 'Messengers of Peace" and feature subjects of universal concern
such as human rights, the environment, endangered species and peace. They
have also been used to promote important events and subjects that reflect the
work of the UN. The stamps extend beyond the boundaries of philately to draw
attention to significant world problems and to serve as a reminder of the
UN's commitment to its goals.
