Abu Dhabi’s Prison Makeover: Judicial Department Takes the Reins
Hold onto your hats because Abu Dhabi’s prison management is in for a big shake-up! Starting January 1, 2024, the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department will be the new sheriff in town when it comes to overseeing punitive and correctional establishments in the emirate.
This seismic shift comes courtesy of none other than the UAE’s President, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nayhan, who, in his role as the Ruler of Abu Dhabi, has just signed off on this game-changing law. It’s not just the big houses that are getting a makeover; juvenile facilities are also in for a new caretaker.
The mission here is clear: rehabilitation and correctional ecosystems are set to receive a major boost thanks to this law. Effective rehab and reintegration into society are the name of the game, and this move is designed to make sure that happens.
In other exciting news, Dubai is launching a digital service that’s set to revolutionize how fines are handled in criminal cases. If you find yourself in a legal pickle, this new service allows you to pay your fine with ease and, here’s the kicker, automatically lifts any travel bans once the court’s verdict is in.
After settling your fine, this savvy service taps into Dubai Police to cancel arrest warrants and halt searches for individuals. It’s all about making the wheels of justice turn faster, especially when it comes to executing judgments in absentia.
Stay tuned for more game-changing updates in the world of justice!
