Dubai Launches Platform for Reporting Economic Crimes

Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has officially launched a platform that enables the public to report economic crimes.

Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Dubai Border Security Council, has officially launched a platform to facilitate public reporting of economic crimes. 

This initiative aims to foster greater community involvement in identifying and reporting economic offenses, given their significant negative impact on the broader community, the business sector, and the national economy.

Strengthening Economic Security:

The launch ceremony took place during the second edition of the Al Ameen Forum, held at the Mohammed Bin Rashid Library under the theme ‘ Security as the Pillar of the Modern Economy … The Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Sheikh Mansoor praised the efforts to enhance security systems that protect Dubai and the UAE’s economies. 

He emphasized the importance of increased community engagement in safeguarding the national economy, which, in turn, would strengthen mechanisms for combating economic crimes.

Preparedness for Challenges:

The chairman underscored the importance of being prepared to address challenges that may hinder the benefits of the 4th Industrial Revolution as well as digital transformation. 

He highlighted Dubai’s commitment to removing potential disruptions to growth and development, underscoring its status as a global business and financial hub.

Commitment to International Best Practices:

Sheikh Mansoor reiterated Dubai’s commitment to upholding the highest standards and international best practices related to economic Security.

This commitment protects Dubai’s unique development model, fostering an environment conducive to business growth and robust public-private partnerships.

The New Reporting Platform:

The platform for reporting economic crimes, operated by the Economic Security Center of Dubai, encourages community engagement and interaction among citizens, residents, and visitors. 

It is an additional channel for reporting economic offenses, including money laundering, terror funding, bribery, forgery, and embezzlement, potentially impacting Dubai’s economy or resources.

Individuals reporting such crimes must provide evidence if they know of the violations. To ensure due legal process, public members should refrain from conducting their investigations to gather evidence, as this responsibility rests solely with authorized entities responsible for following up on reported incidents.

Faisal bin Selaitin, Executive Director of the Economic Security Centre of Dubai, emphasized that the platform’s launch reflects the UAE leadership’s commitment to protecting Dubai’s economy and strengthening its economic security apparatus. 

Confidentiality for those reporting offenses will be ensured to encourage active public participation.

The introduction of this platform aligns with the Economic Security Centre’s proactive efforts to safeguard the local economy and deliver distinctive services in line with Dubai’s Economic Agenda D33, aimed at solidifying the city’s position as one of the world’s top economic hubs.

The Economic Security Centre of Dubai was established in 2016 to bolster the emirate’s legal and economic security framework, combat corruption, and address economic crimes effectively.
