UAE to commemorate Human Rights Day

posted on 10/12/2002: 600 views


The UAE, along with other peace loving nations of the world, will commemorate tomorrow the Universal Declaration on Human Rights. The anniversary of the declaration comes at a time when human rights violations have increased in some parts of the world. "The UAE joins the peace loving countries in their endeavours to safeguard human rights and promote and maintain equality between peoples,” said an official at the Dubai Police. Major General Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, Chief of the Dubai Police will attend a celebration that will be organised by the Human Rights Division of the Dubai Police to mark the anniversary. During the celebration, participants will review human rights values as contained in the universal declaration, in addition to the Arab and Islamic values that predated this declaration.



It will be recalled that Islam called for the protection of the prisoners of war, their children and also made it clear that there should be no discrimination between Arabs and non-Arabs, blacks or whites, except in their piety. Major Dr. Mohammed Al Murr said that the Islamic civilisation pioneered the issues of human rights, adding that the human rights division at the Dubai police succeeded this year in revitalising its motto of "Defending Prisoners Rights”. The issue of prisoners rights had been given due attention by the UAE legislators as proved by the federal law No. 43 of 1995, which regulates the treatment of prisoners, he said.
