ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates - Thursday, May 28th 2015 [ME NewsWire]
The Department of Community Police at the Abu Dhabi Police conducted an outreach program to raise public awareness about the negative effects of witchcraft and sorcery. This comes as a part of the department’s plan to combat the scourge of such hoaxes and to spread security awareness within the community.
Major Yusuf Faraj Al Hassan, Head of Community Awareness at the Department of Community Police, said: “Over the course of a month, about 54,000 people benefited from the program through their interactions with the various divisions of the Community Police and with our external partners.”
Should anyone encounter someone who practices sorcery, Major Yusuf urged the public to cooperate by reporting such fraudsters via the Aman service (8002626).
