Dubai Courts enters Guinness records
Dubai, October 10, 2013
The Dubai Courts sold a Dh94 million ($25.6 million) worth property in an e-auction, becoming the first court to enter the Guinness World Records.
The court broke the record for the most expensive property sold via an e-auction conducted through smart applications, with its partnership with Emirates Auction.
Dr Ahmed Saeed Bin Hazeem, managing director of Dubai Courts, received the certificate of registration from the management of Guinness World Records, during a meeting with its delegation, in the presence of Abdullah Matar Al-Mannaei, CEO of Emirates Auction, and other officials.
The sale of the property was made through an online auction, in an integrated manner, with only smart applications involved in the bidding process.
The Dubai Courts Execution Department had put up the land in Dubai for auction, and the Emirates Auction had posted this particular auction online and via smart applications. The auction was ultimately won by a group of Emirati investors who bought the piece of land for more than Dh94 million.
Bin Hazeem stressed Dubai Courts’ keenness to achieve continuous excellence and leadership, and to provide all that is innovative to meet the needs of clients and the general public.
He also referred to the ‘Al Salfa’ remote case registration programme, the first service in the Middle East to provide an integrated platform for clients to register their cases without the need to be physically present at the Courts' premises.
Al-Mannaei said: “We are currently working to switch to smart applications. We have already launched a mobile application which enables the public to participate in auctions online. We are also working to convert all of our services and businesses to smart applications in the near future.” - TradeArabia News Service
