Kuwait boosts hu­man rights in se­cu­rity do­main: Of­fi­cial

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

The State of Kuwait, rep­re­sented by the Min­istry of In­te­rior, seeks to boost hu­man rights in the se­cu­rity realm and has taken a lot of mea­sures to en­hance co­op­er­a­tion among all rel­e­vant au­thor­i­ties at this level, a vis­it­ing of­fi­cial has af­firmed.

Colonel Ab­dul­lah Al-Ajmi, In­ter­na­tional Re­la­tions Direc­tor at the Min­istry of In­te­rior, said in a state­ment on the side­lines of a the third con­fer­ence group­ing Arab of­fi­cials charged with hu­man rights that kicked off in Tu­nisia yes­ter­day, that the par­tak­ing Kuwaiti del­e­ga­tion shed light in its pre­sen­ta­tion on the min­istry ex­pe­ri­ence in boost­ing hu­man rights.

Kuwait has taken tan­gi­ble steps at this level, join­ing the UN Uni­ver­sal Dec­la­ra­tion of Hu­man Rights, en­act­ing Law 67/2015, stip­u­lat­ing es­tab­lish­ment of the Na­tional Di­wan for Hu­man Rights, in ad­di­tion to co­op­er­at­ing with di­verse re­gional and in­ter­na­tional agen­cies in­volved in the field.

Colonel Ajmi, more­over, in­di­cated at the ex­it­ing co­op­er­a­tion between the Min­istry of In­te­rior with the UN High Com­mis­sioner for Hu­man Rights (UNHCHR) and the In­ter­na­tional Mi­gra­tion Or­ga­ni­za­tion (IMO). Kuwaiti po­lice of­fi­cers of­ten par­take in train­ing cour­ses held by th­ese in­ter­na­tional agen­cies.

At the Arab level, Kuwait co­or­di­nates with Arab coun­tries in this do­main, reg­u­larly par­tic­i­pates in Arab hu­man rights as­so­ci­a­tions and or­ga­ni­za­tions. The Arab con­ven­tion started ear­lier to­day, with aim of map­ping out a com­mon strat­egy to boost hu­man rights in the se­cu­rity field in the Arab world. Kuwait is tak­ing part in the con­fer­ence with a del­e­ga­tion rep­re­sent­ing the Min­istry of In­te­rior. It also in­cludes Cap­tain Hussein Al-Baghli, head of the Hu­man Rights Depart­ment at the min­istry. —KUNA
