Oman chamber flays US decision.

Muscat: The Chamber of Commerce and Industry has added its voice to the chorus of criticism against the US State Department's recent decision to keep the Sultanate on a blacklist of countries that have failed to combat human trafficking.

On Friday, the chamber's influential Chairman, Khalil Bin Abdullah Al Khonji, reiterated the Omani government's respect for human rights and labour laws. In particular, he noted that all relevant laws are in place to guarantee the rights of workers.

"All labour legislation in the Sultanate guarantees an environment that is conducive for the parties concerned [management and workers] to operate. Contrary to the flawed US report, Omani laws guarantee the rights of both parties," official news agency ONA quoted Al Khonji as saying.
