ABU DHABI – A new court in Abu Dhabi has been set up to fast-track minor financial cases in the emirate and deliver a verdict within 15 days.
The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department announced on Sunday (June 20) that the fast-track court will handle financial disputes involving claims of less than Dh500,000.
The new court will deal with labour disputes, unpaid salaries, as well as commercial cases and civil cases and issue a judgement within 15 days of the case being registered.
The hearing at these courts can only be adjourned once, and judges must issue a ruling on the day the case is resolved.
The new fast-track court in Abu Dhabi has been set up on the orders of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs.
The first one-day courts on commercial and civil cases were set up in Ras Al Khaimah in 2017. The courts handled cases that involved claims of up to Dh20,000. One-day courts were also introduced in Dubai in 2017. BGM/Expat Media
