DUBAI – The Dubai Public Prosecution announced a new smart service that lets people close their bounced cheque cases by paying fines via their smartphone.
The new service, which will be rolled out on October 13, was announced during Gitex Technology Week on Monday (October 7).
According to Fatima Ahmad Bin Haider, IT director at Dubai Public Prosecution, the service is available for people with bounced cheque cases worth less than Dh200,000 in Dubai.
Instead of going to a police station to pay a fine, they can pay the fine and close their case through their smartphone.
Under the UAE law, people with bounced cheque cases worth less than Dh200,000 face a maximum fine of Dh10,000 without the case being referred to court.
Bin Haider explained that a link will be sent to the mobile phone of the customer. Following the link, the customer can then proceed online where his face and email ID will be scanned. The customer can then download the case announcement and pay the fine without physically visiting the public prosecution. ICA/Expat Media
