DOHA, Dec 7 (KUNA) -- Kuwait voiced deep keenness on Thursday to protect humans from trafficking and smuggling as a form of contemporary slavery and a blatant violation of human rights and fundamental freedoms guaranteed by international laws.
Kuwait has taken several measures, including enacting legislations that affirm its serious desire to combat such crimes, Director of Public Protection and Anti-Human Trafficking Department at the Interior Ministry Colonel Haitham Al-Othman told KUNA. His remarks came on the sidelines of the fifth World Interpol Conference on Combating Human Trafficking and Smuggling of Migrants.
The Kuwaiti law 91/2013 on human trafficking and the smuggling of migrants states on combating these crimes and is consistent with international organizations, he noted.
He pointed out that his administration also has organized awareness campaigns pertaining that law which focuses on citizens and residents as well as law enforcement.
Al-Othman added that there is cooperation with a number of sectors inside the ministry, the Public Authority for Manpower, and the UN International Organization for Migration in terms of detecting crime, training and coordination in this regard.
Al-Othman explained that since its establishment, the Department became aware of a number of cases, which were later shifted to the General Prosecution to enforce the law.
The two-day conference is participated by more than 300 people representing more than 90 countries. (end) nnd.mb
