The Dubai Courts embraced strategic plans for the efficient enforcements of civil judgements.

According to Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance of the UAE, and Chairman of the Dubai Judicial Council the new plan will improve the effectiveness of judicial procedures . Furthermore, he referred to "No one is above the law" in one of the eight rules of administration in Dubai mentioned by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai.

Referring to HH Sheikh Mohammed, Sheikh Maktoum tweeted, "Justice is the bedrock of a strong and proud nation, and guarantees prosperity and stability" . He further clarified that the new strategic plan shows Dubai's dedication to constantly improving the judicial system's quality and providing the highest standard of public services. It will boost trust in Dubai's court system, which is essential for maintaining the emirate's competitiveness on the world stage.

 The new initiatives that were revealed as part of the strategic plan are:

  • Privatization of execution procedures

The Dubai Courts will administer a decision to provide licenses to commercial businesses to provide judgment execution services in accordance with the processes of Civil Law No. (42) of 2022.

  • Electronic writ of execution seal

The project aims to make it easier to carry out a court order.

  • Smart requests

This aims to simplify the writ of execution process so that the special commissioner authorized by the court, officials, and execution judge are informed about their enforcement responsibilities and tasks online.

  • Disclosure platform.

This allows all officers and officials concerned with the implementation of an order to be notified about the funds and assets of judgement debtors.

  • Sale notification system

This creates a system for informing decision-making officials about items confiscated as a result of a verdict so that they can be sold within a predetermined time limit.

  • Integration with the Ministry of Interior

It attempts to ensure that laws are upheld with the assistance of police and security departments.

The new initiatives will enable a progressive court system that exceeds the international standards for speed, efficiency, and service excellence, according to Taresh Eid Al Mansouri, Director General of the Dubai Courts
