Antiquities Protection Law in the pipeline

posted on 09/09/2014: 1959 views

Mohammed Khamis Al Muhairi - Director-General at National Council of Tourism and Antiquities, has said the National Antiquities Protection Law to be issued by the Cabinet is deemed a new step forward to preserving and protecting the U.A.E. national heritage in line with the U.A.E. vision 2021.

He added that the law would preserve the heritage rights of current and next generations, adding that it calls for protection, face-lifting and banning the exportation of antiquities unless with a licence from competent authorities.

Al Muhairi noted that the delay in issuance of this law is attributed to the accuracy and unique nature of the archaeological work, adding that enacting of such laws need archaeologists and legal professionals in this respect. – Emirates News Agency, WAM –
