Committee on anti-human trafficking discusses latest situation

The meeting heard a presentation about an anti-human trafficking diploma programme developed by the Human Rights Department of the Dubai Police. The programme, the first of its kind in the Arab world, aims to provide practical training and experience to deal with this type of crime. The programme will contribute to the country?s efforts in the fight against human trafficking crimes.

The committee also reviewed measures taken by some government agencies including the Dubai Foundation for Women and Children, regarding a report circulated on social media about a human trafficking case. A thorough investigation found no indicators confirming human trafficking or exploitation.
