UAE Human Rights Association hails Wadima's Law

posted on 17/11/2012: 1620 views


The UAE Human Rights Association hailed the Child Protection Law passed by the federal cabinet on Tuesday.

The Association said that the promulgation of the law strengthens the positive role played by Their Highnesses the Sheikhs and leaders of the country in protecting rights of children to live in safety and peace.

The new law, approved by the Cabinet, includes 72 articles which cover all children's rights guaranteed by international conventions, the rules of Islamic Sharia and the principles of the Emirati Constitution.

The Children Affairs Committee chairman at the Association Abdul Rahman Ghanem said that the decision to name the law as "Wadima's Law" was a sincere tribute to the girl.

UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum had instructed that the law should be known as 'Wadima's Law,' after the eight-year old Emirati girl who was recently killed by her father, a crime that shocked the Emirati society. â€" Emirates News Agency, WAM
