He made the remarks at the conclusion of the first course on investigation in human trafficking crimes, which was organised by the department in conjunction with the Human rights Division of the General Department for Community Service and the Shield Security Services Company of UK.

The UAE, he said, is among the countries, which have enforced anti-human trafficking laws and legislations.

The course is the first of its kind to be held in the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council, he noted.

Sultan A. Juwaiyed, a lawyer at Al Ain Public Prosecution, and John Delmon from the British Police, delivered lectures during the course, with the aim of boosting the UAE role in upholding human rights.

The course aims at equipping the police officers from Dubai Police and the Ministry of Interior, with the skills and modern means needed for investigating and probing different kinds of such crimes, as well as underscoring the rue of law.

Brigadier Al Mouzina distributed the certificates to participants of the five-day course.
