A visiting official of the Kuwaiti Ministry of Justice said the department had contributed with a large number of local and international laws' copies to the UN Sherloc portal.

The information and documents have been provided to the site, in line with a previous agreement among member states of the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime, said Zakariya Al­Ansari, the assistant undersecretary for legal affairs.

He was speaking to KUNA following a meeting with a UN official in charge of the site, on margins of the Ninth Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime.

Sherloc portal is a tool that contributes to enhancing international cooperation in legal matters, he said, also noting that the Kuwaiti side held the meeting with the officers in charge of the digital service for affirming the Gulf country commitment to international treaties and robust support for international­regional cooperation in combating transnational crimes.

Participants in the session discussed, over the past five days, strategies for clamping down on organized crimes, such as trade in humans and arms, illegal immigrants' trafficking and bolstering global cooperation against emerging crimes.
