According to a report by the Filipino Times, the largest Filipino newspaper in UAE, the authorities said that this indicates their “utmost” respect for the laws of the host country.

“Filipinos commit the least (number of) crimes here in the UAE,” Lt. Col. Bader Al Neyadi said in the First Filipino Community Forum held in Abu Dhabi Police General Headquarters.

The event was supported by the Philippine Embassy, spearheaded by the Bayanihan Council and the Abu Dhabi Police with 100 community attendees.

In a recent Facebook post of Bayanihan Council – Abu Dhabi, the Abu Dhabi Police extends their appreciation to the overwhelming support and attendance from the Embassy.

“The forum enlightened relevant questions and opened up our desire to volunteer and help make Abu Dhabi maintain its peace, security, and happiness,” it added.
