Amman - The UAE will spare no effort to back sustained regional and international initiatives for fighting crimes and entrenching justice. 'The UAE will continue its close cooperation with all international specialised organisations in this respect,' said UAE Minister of Justice Mohammed bin Nakhira Al Dhahiri in an address today before a regional conference dedicated to discuss the UN anti-corruption convention.

He told the meeting, which is being hosted by the Jordanian ministry of justice in conjunction with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), that the UAE has ratified the convention in 2006 by the federal decree number 8.

On UAE anti-corruption efforts, the minister said the UAE has drafted organisational and punitive legislations to ensure integrity and transparency in government performance. 'The UAE has introduced provisions on its penal code to criminalise corruption-related crimes and enacted laws to combat money laundering and trafficking in human persons,' he explained.

'Corruption is not a phenomenon in the UAE community but we are determine in light of the current boom to devise adequate mechanism to fight it and punish corruptors in line with international standards,' 'he stressed. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
