In his speech at the ninth session of the Conference of the Parties to the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime, Judge Al­Haid supported inclusion of crimes and criminal justice in the UN agenda with the objective of upholding the human right principles.

He added that State of Kuwait in that regard established anti­corruption authority, enacted information technology and human rights laws, in addition to a law for children. Judge Al­Haid added Kuwait pinned many cooperation agreements with international parties to exchange judicial expertise.

The conferees tackle a wide array of key issues relative to organized crimes including the implementation of the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, especially women and children; the Protocol against the Smuggling of Migrants by Land, Sea and Air; and the Protocol against the Illicit Manufacturing of and Trafficking in Firearms, Their Parts and Components and Ammunition.
