Anti-Human Trafficking Committee at MoI discusses 2017 strategy

He added that the committee attaches great importance to the role of media and awareness, and noted that a co-ordination with the security media will be established to develop a mechanism to regulate the media awareness campaigns.


The UAE is one of the few countries in the world which do not suffer from the human trafficking problem, Col. Bin Muhairom said, adding that it is one of the first countries that have enacted laws that severely punish human trafficking crimes.


He said that the state’s institutions work harder to develop and promote all preventive measures to fight this crime, which is inconsistent with the concepts of human rights.


At the onset, the members of the committee reviewed all the measures taken so far to prevent such crimes in the UAE.
