Dubai World tribunal to amend rules
Dubai, June 5, 2011
The Special Tribunal related to Dubai World has proposed to amend the current rules through public consultation in line with its commitment to transparency and judicial independence.
These amendments, which are based on judicial and Tribunal users’ experience and case requirements, will be made available for a month starting from June 5 on the tribunal’s website.
Following public consultation, amendments will be made to the Rules of the DIFC Courts, which shall then be referred to as the “Special Tribunal Rules.”
Any such amendments will not, however, affect or adjust the rules currently applied by the DIFC Courts.
“The purpose of the proposed amendments is further to enhance the efficiency and accessibility of the Special Tribunal Related to Dubai World,” said Sir Anthony Evans, chairman of The Special Tribunal Related to Dubai World.
"Since its inception on December 13, 2009, the Tribunal has heard various cases pertaining to Dubai World and remained committed to delivering swift and fair justice," he noted.
"Based on its case experience in this period, the Tribunal has proposed to adapt certain areas of the DIFC Courts’ rules first applied, to better fit and strengthen the Tribunal’s evolving requirements," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
