Concerns about human rights violations prompted the Commissioner for Police and Crime in Sussex County, England, to withdraw 6 million pounds invested in Qatar.

Commissioner Kitty Bourne made the decision after members of an independent audit committee criticized the investment in Qatar.

“Lending money to Qatar seems to contradict everything we say about equality, pluralism, and how we do our work,” said committee member Mike Heep.

And in 2019, he invested 20 million pounds in Qatar.
