UAE supports international efforts to fight human trafficking

The UAE also succeeded in reducing the proliferation of human trafficking through partnerships and agreements it concluded with competent local, regional and international authorities to combat and eliminate such crimes, he added.


Shaikh Hamdan stressed that the UAE strongly supports international efforts to combat human trafficking, which he described as a ?stigma? on humanity.


He emphasised that the UAE recognised the magnitude of the humanitarian tragedy facing victims of human trafficking early, and set up the National Committee to Combat Human Trafficking and later established shelters for the victims as part of a comprehensive national strategy to battle this heinous crime.
