Dubai police launched the 'Dont' Turn a Blind Eye' campaign against human trafficking
Dubai/ On the World Day against Trafficking in Persons, Dubai police launched their 'Dont' Turn a Blind Eye' campaign; an extensive two-year campaign that aims to raise awareness and help people - from airport staff to travellers - identify and report human trafficking.
A series of workshops and awareness conferences will be carried out for airport employees. Tips and information will be displayed on screens in Dubai airports, educating travellers on what they can do to help a possible trafficking victim. The police also aim to reach out to victims and assure them that they can always seek help from the authorities.

Raising travellers' awareness and training those who work at the airports are key to fighting such crimes, said Brigadier Dr Mohammed Abdullah Al Murr, director of the General Directorate for Human Rights.

To combat such crimes, full cooperation from society is necessary, he added. "No one should hesitate to contact the police in case one notices any type of human trafficking," Brig Al Murr said.

Boris Znamensky, deputy director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) office in GCC countries, thanked the Dubai Police for launching the campaign, saying that the UNODC is proud to be a partner.
