RAS AL KHAIMAH -- The Ras al-Khaimah Courts has concluded its participation in the International Judicial Conference, which was held in Washington, DC, from 9th to 14th July, 2017.
Ahmed Mohammed Al Khateri, Chairman of the Ras al-Khaimah Courts Department, said that the Department presented a paper on the success of Ras al-Khaimah's "one-day court", which was launched by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Crown Prince of Ras al-Khaimah and Chairman of the Judicial Council in the Emirate. He also noted that the conference was organised by the International Association for Court Administration, in co-operation with the National Association for Court Management in the United States, under the title, "Judicial Excellence on a Global Scale".
Al Khateri stated that the procedures of filing a case in a traditional court require nine steps, while this innovative court only requires one step, which surprised the audience, especially as the final ruling is issued on the same day the case is registered. He highlighted that not a single case was postponed during the last six months and the rulings were satisfactory for all parties, while noting that the number of cases exceeded 420.
Al Khateri praised the organisation of the conference, the importance of the issues addressed and their relationship with judicial actions, as well as the wide experience of the participants in the judicial field. He also stressed that the participation of 1,000 judicial and administrative personnel in the conference, representing 80 countries, is considered a good opportunity to benefit from their leading international experience, and to introduce the audience to the UAE's advanced judicial position, under the leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
Al Khateri thanked H.H. Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras al-Khaimah, and H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, for supporting the judicial system and its personnel, and adopting a clear strategy to develop the judicial sector and enable it to reach a high level of transparency, in its quest to dispense justice.
