Even though the phenomenon is decreasing, baggage thefts continue at Rome international airport. The victim this time, among many others, was the Qatar royal family.

Two employees of Fiumicino airport have been arrested. While the suitcases were on the luggage belts, they spotted the most elegant luggage and removed some valuables without showing signs of forced entry.

After two months of investigations, a large part of the stolen goods have been recovered, according to a report from the Qatar embassy.

The perpetrators were dismissed from their jobs, but simply reported to the judicial authorities. Until the Italian Parliament decides to restore arrest for crimes against property, robbery and theft will always be irresistible temptations for those who have nothing to lose.
