The UAE yesterday reiterated its commitment to combating all forms of crimes and pledged to fully implement relevant international conventions. Addressing the 11th Conference of the United Nations for Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, Abdul Rahim Yousif Al Awadi , Undersecretary of the Ministry of Justice, Islamic Affairs , said that the UAE had gone a long way in implementing international conventions to which it is a signatory.

"The UAE has issued stringent legislation criminalizing money laundering, terrorism, cyber crimes and all forms of other crimes,” said Al Awadi. He pointed out that the UAE has set an example worth emulating in combating cyber crimes, noting that the UAE cabinet recently passed the cyber crimes law and will be issued soon.

"This law complements the anti-money laundry law issued earlier,” he said. Al Awadi told the conference that the UAE made several initiatives to beef up anti-terror measures, particularly in the area of terror financing by organizing three conferences on alternative transfer system or Hawala.
