Law against human trafficking will be enforced soon in UAE



The National Committee on Curbing Human Trafficking has discussed a mechanism to activate the law against human trading in the country, said Dr Anwar Mohammed Gargash, Minister of State for Federal National Council Affairs and Chairperson of the Committee.

The minister’s statement came yesterday following the first meeting for the committee, which was constituted under a cabinet decree. A team will be formed to coordinate between the committee and the authorities to combat the crime, said Dr Gargash.

He said the committee reviewed initiatives undertaken by the country for protecting camel jockeys and the successful programmes adopted by the Ministry of Interior and Unicef to ensure their rehabilitation in their native countries.

The National Committee for Curbing Human Trafficking is responsible for studying and modernising legislations in accordance with international requirements. It is also responsible for preparing reports, in coordination with other authorities in the UAE.
