Namgyel reiterated that there is no state in the world which is free from corruption and crime, the Gulf Times carried a news report quoting him as saying.

“One cannot overlook the fact that whatever crimes occurring in any territory are the result of developments happening there. Corruption also comes along with that,” he added.

He even claimed that no cyber crime or money laundering case has ever been reported in Bhutan.

“Each of the issues deliberated in Doha has a bearing on every member nation of the Interpol and everyone is bound to act sooner than later on the resolutions passed at the General Assembly,” said Namgyel reported the daily.

Namgyel further said, “Only thing that I could say with certainty is that the law and order situation in my country is perhaps one of the best in the whole of Asia, with only a handful of crimes being reported.”

According to him, 4000-strong police force is very vigilant in Bhutan.

Replying to a query related to travel to Bhutan he said, “We have excellent relations with India and hence Indian nationals do not require visa to reach Bhutan. They only need to show their identity cards.”

CoP Namgyel was in Doha of Qatar to take part in the 179th General Assembly of the INTERPOL.
