The sales of seized items, confiscated in accordance with court judgements issued by Abu Dhabi Courts, have recorded a total value of Dh14.48 million. This amount represents the proceeds from the sale of 101 vehicles, five boats and some gold jewellery and artefacts.

These proceeds have been accumulated since the formation of a permanent committee in November 2022 to implement confiscation judgements on vehicles, objects, assets and precious metals.

Counselor Yousef Saeed Al Abri, Undersecretary of the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, explained that the Permanent Committee for Implementing Confiscation Judgements, formed based on the decision of His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President of the UAE, Deputy Prime Minister, Chairman of the Presidential Court, and Chairman of the Judicial Department, is responsible for overseeing the full implementation of criminal judgements related to the confiscation of vehicles, objects, assets, and precious metals and for taking all legal measures regarding their sale in cooperation with the relevant authorities.

Counselor Yousef Al Abri stated that the committee is working in coordination with the competent authorities to evaluate the seized items subject to confiscation and to prepare technical reports on them, in preparation for taking executive steps towards selling them through electronic auction in accordance with the established rules.

He emphasised the necessity of lifting restrictions, facilitating the procedures for handing over vehicles and removing all obstacles and challenges in cooperation with the relevant institutions.

He pointed out that the ADJD Auction smart application effectively contributes to facilitating and accelerating the processes of bidding for confiscated items in accordance with the court judgements. It enables bidders to review the full details of the items displayed, while providing innovative options for bidding remotely and ensuring that all procedures are completed through fast and simple steps.
