MANAMA, March 30 (Xinhua) -- Bahrain announced on Thursday it will set up an office to protect the rights of witnesses and victims of human trafficking.

The Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) has initiated the procedures for the establishment of the office, the Bahrain News Agency reported.

The office would function as a point of contact with the public prosecutors by studying and submitting requests in cases of human trafficking, said LMRA CEO Nouf Abdulrahman Jamsheer, who also serves as the head of the National Committee for Combatting Trafficking in Persons.

The office will protect victims and witnesses from psychological harm and material losses throughout public prosecution proceedings while monitoring the implementation of verdicts, said Jamsheer. Enditem
