Dubai Courts forms new judicial affairs committee

DUBAI, July 6, 2015

Dubai Courts has formed a committee on Supreme Judicial Affairs, which will be headed by Tarish Eid Al Mansouri, director general of Dubai Courts.

The move falls in line with Dubai Courts’ ongoing efforts to enhance court work, improve the speed and ease of litigation proceedings and enhance the accuracy and clarity of court orders—being at par with the objectives of Dubai Plan 2021.

The jurisdiction of the newly established committee includes the review, examination and approval of new projects, proposals and initiatives that are related to the judicial sector.

In addition, the committee will lead the efforts in adopting annual performance indicators and targets; assessing results and the proposal and implementation of corrective actions to improve the quality, efficiency and reliability of legal and judicial services, which is poised to help increase customer happiness and promote community welfare.

Al Mansouri explained that the Supreme Judicial Affairs Committee reflects Dubai Courts’ efforts to develop the judicial system and provide better legal services to the local community.

He pointed out that this serves as a key step forward in launching new services that are aimed at being at pace with the fast-emerging developments in Dubai - all under the wise vision and directives of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai among the best cities of the world in delivering a high quality of life by 2021.

“The Supreme Judicial Affairs Committee will specialize in the study, development and adoption of valuable projects and initiatives, which are considered key cornerstones of excellence and leadership and a major requirement to meet the strategic directives of turning the UAE into one of the most innovative countries in the world,” said Al Mansouri.

“We are confident that this newly established committee will play a significant role in our ongoing efforts to develop legal and judicial services and make them 100 per cent smart by the end of 2015. This is poised to help save time and effort in completing legal and judicial transactions while also reducing the number of auditors,” he added.

The members of the committee include deputy director general of Dubai Courts and the heads of the Court of Cassation, the Court of Appeals, the Court of First Instance, Criminal Court, Personal Status Court, Real Estate Court, Civil Court, Labour Court and Commercial Court.

In addition to its main tasks, the committee will also be responsible for the examination and referral of judiciary-related recommendations to relevant authorities - finding all means available to improve the judicial work at Dubai Courts, evaluate all requests from the judiciary and to take suitable decisions accordingly. - TradeArabia News Service
