Kuwait stressed on the importance of raising awareness against terrorism and radical thinking by educating the public and intensifying campaigns that call for tolerance and acceptance of others, a Ministry of Justice official said on Wednesday.
This remark was made by Assistant Undersecretary for Legal Affairs at Ministry of Justice Zakariya Al-Ansari at the 25th session for the UN Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (CCPCJ) in Vienna.
Al-Ansari said that Kuwait strongly condemns terrorism of all its forms which violates all principles of human rights and values. He added that Kuwait is taking sincere measures against countering this phenomenon by strengthening regional and international cooperation.
Locally, Kuwait has adopted some protective measures such as: setting up a national committee to counter money laundry and terrorism funding, establishing a monetary investigation unit to protect public funding and creating a peace rehabilitation center to correct deviant ways of thinking within religious and psychological methods.
He said that the CCPCJ exerted efforts to promote religious moderation, stating that Kuwait has also set up a full scale strategic plan to promote religion moderation through the involvement of private sector, civil communities and governmental specialized bodies.
The plan focuses on teaching religious values, encouraging social responsibility, developing e-media means to promote moderation, and tightening security methods.
