Qatar officials report first-ever drug seizure at World Cup

MOSCOW, November 21 – RIA Novosti. Authorities in Qatar announced on Monday the first seizure of drugs, including the pain reliever tramadol, during the World Cup, France Presse reported.

Qatar customs officers found illegal drugs in the luggage of one of the passengers during a security check at Hamad International Airport. About 2,000 tramadol tablets and 464.5 grams of cannabis were seized from him. It was noted that the detainee, whose nationality was not specified, will be brought before the court.

There are severe penalties including long prison sentences, heavy fines and deportation for possession, use and trafficking in drugs in Qatar.

Tramadol belongs to the group of painkillers and is a potent centrally acting analgesic. The drug has been in the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) monitoring program since 2012. Scientific studies by WADA have confirmed data on the effect of tramadol on improving sports performance. WADA’s ban on tramadol use will come into effect on January 1, 2024. Tramadol use is already banned in competitive cycling.
