Manama, Oct. 18 (BNA): Chief Executive of the Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) Ausamah bin Abdullah Alabsi, the Chairman of the National Committee to Combat Trafficking in Persons, praised the decision of Attorney General Dr. Ali bin Fadhel Al Buainin to establish an Anti-human Trafficking Prosecution, stressing the committee’s support to the decision and its full readiness to cooperate with the prosecution in assisting the victims.
Al Absi pointed out that the Anti-human Trafficking Prosecution is a new achievement for the Kingdom of Bahrain in combating this crime. He added it also demonstrates the extent to which the culture of combating trafficking in persons has become entrenched in the state’s infrastructure as an integral part of the work environment in the Kingdom.
Al Absi explained that the establishment of a prosecution specialised in combating trafficking in persons would contribute to boosting the efforts to combat this crime by giving a solid legal impetus to investigate cases in accordance with law 1/2008 on combating trafficking in persons and related laws. He added the move will also accelerate the process of redress for the victims and granting them their rights after punishing the perpetrators.
The Chairman of the National Committee to Combat Trafficking in Persons affirmed that the decision proves anew the kingdom’s ongoing efforts to improve the work environment and combat human trafficking, be it at the local or international level. He pointed out that the kingdom’s unrelenting efforts in this respect have earned it international trust, being a model to emulate in combating trafficking in persons.
