Live theft of Qatar 2022 World Cup reporter: They are stealing money and documents



The Qatar 2022 World Cup has become controversial as has already been noted in the months leading up to its launch: since the celebration of this sporting event more than a decade ago, criticisms have not stopped following one after another. And journalists being in Doha to do their job is no easy feat, but they tell Dominique Metzger, the Argentine correspondent for Todo Noticias (TN) who was robbed firsthand.

This young journalist was broadcasting live with her country when someone stole her purse: it had no cash and only credit cards. Also vital documents to be able to stay in Qatar. That is why he did not hesitate to call the police to arrest the perpetrator.

Dominique told how she went through the whole process through her social networks: “My wallet just got stolen when we were doing a livestream. I am at the police station and they sent me here to report it because they guarantee that everything is under surveillance and that they will find the wallet that has my documents, money and cards in it, which obviously worries me.“.

There was no violence in a robbery that occurred when the young woman danced with several people connected to Argentina. It didn’t take long for the agents to find the thief, who would meet the fate decided by Dominic: “What do you want justice to do with this?They asked him and, in addition, gave him several options:They insisted on asking me what punishment I want for the thief, if I want him to be sentenced to 5 years in prison, if I want him to be deported… I can decide (…). I did not want to put myself in the place of justice. I got goosebumps, because it sounded so strong“.
