If the defaulter is out of UAE, need to check first if any case or multiple cases are registered on the defaulter and get the case details accordingly if any. The case check will be done with few documents and an authorization from the one who wants to do it. After doing the case check and found to have any case/cases, the defendant then has to sign the power of attorney to a lawyer in the UAE and make him/her represent in the court on behalf of the defendant. There would be fine issued against the defendant as normal and once the fine is paid, the case is closed and the defendant is free to enter and exit the country. For any detailed information email us contact@uaedebtsolutions.com

Ok thanks. Do you handle such cases? Or is there a reputable lawyer you can refer?

Electronic Bail Instead of Passport in Dubai

Gulf News-Dubai: A newly launched smart initiative by Dubai Police in Jabel Ali Police Station enables the suspects involved in certain misdemeanors to keep their passports in their control and not have them seized by prosecutors.

Suspects, who involve in particular offenses, can start obtaining an electronic bail without having to keep their passports or those of their guarantors in the possession of the Dubai Public Prosecution as per the ‘Smart Bail’ initiative, Prosecutor General Ali Humaid Bin Khatem told Gulf News on Monday.

Offense cases

The service applies on suspects involved in misdemeanor cases of crimes such as bounce cheques, cursing/insulting, breach of trust, drinking alcohol, assault and petit embezzlement and thefts and other minor offences.

As per the smart bail, the suspects will not be asked to give up their passport but they will not be allowed to leave the UAE. This initiative acts as an ‘electronic guarantee’ that the suspect attends the prosecution’s investigation or the trial.

Abu Dhabi launches 'one-day judicial system' for
minor cases


A new one-day court initiative launched in Abu Dhabi on Sunday to speed up the judicial process and ensure straightforward cases are dealt with as quickly as possible.
The one-day court began as a pilot last April and has already ruled on 2,443 criminal and misdemeanor cases, 65 labour cases and 205 civil and personal disputes.
A specialised judge in each Abu Dhabi court will now receive one-day court cases allocated by the public prosecution. In Al Ain and the Western Region, all judges are able to rule on cases that have been classified as one-day court material during regular hearings.
Eligible cases range from tourist offences to cross dressing, fights and civil disputes to traffic offences. It was also cover inheritance, delivering a child to his or her custodian, lifting a travel ban, municipality offences, immigration violations, bounced cheques and illegal alcohol consumption and possession.
Head of judicial inspection at the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, Ali Al Shaer, said the trial period allowed the department to test the efficiency of the project and refine the rules.

A major challenge, he said, was with civil cases because they cannot be processed until the other side has been served, or notified.
"Once he or she is served, even if they don't attend we can proceed with the case. But if they have not been served, the ruling would be invalid."
Mohammed Al Shibli, head of the prosecutions department at ADJD, said it is essential that the judicial process for certain types of cases is sped up and hence that they are referred to the one-day court.
An important example, he said, is for cases involving tourists: "The tourist stays in the country for a limited period of time, and therefore it is important to resolve their cases quickly."
The new one-day court also aims to reduce the effort and money spent on imprisoning defendants in straightforward cases – cases where all the necessary factors, evidence and details are ready to be presented and that don't require further investigations or expert reports.
"Imprisoning defendants in such cases for a long time [while they await trial] is an unnecessary financial and security burden," Mr Al Shibli said.

ADJD, said labour courts heard 9,828 minor cases – claims for amounts that are less than Dh500,000 – last year. This year, he expects between 2,000 and 3,000 of them to be heard at the one-day court.
The ADJD initiative follows a similar move by RAK courts last February, which introduced the country’s first one-day courts handling civil and commercial cases that involve claims of up to Dh20,000.
Dubai courts followed a month later by introducing the one-day misdemeanor court, with one judge settling 6,000 cases in just over seven weeks.
Mr Al Shibli said Abu Dhabi's initiative is, however, more inclusive because it is in the form of a “one-day judicial system” and is not limited to specific courts or cases.

Hi I lost my Job in the UAE Dec of 2016 I am back home in the US. I have a UAE bank loan and credit cards totaling around 600k AED I'm sure more now. I had two US collection agencies contact me however the SSN is in correct and some of the loan paper work was fraudulently signed with my name. They can not go further for those two reasons since they follow US banking laws. Now the Interpol threats have started again from the banks. What should I do?

Try as much as possible not to get into any conversation with the banks or collection agencies, do not reply to email aa well. If at all the collection agencies are at your door step then inform them to approach you legally which they cannot do. The banks lended you based on the employment proof you provided them from the UAE and is considered an unsecured lending which cannot be claimed legally outside the UAE.

Hi! So I lost my job in UAE back in 2016 and migrated to USA in 2017. I had a credit card from ENBD on which i owed at around 6k-7k AED. After losing my job I couldn't make payments and the amount ballooned to 15k AED. I am now working for a tech company in LA and last week the entire line managers globally received an email from a Zoheb Khot
External Legal Agency – TAHSEEL with the following email:

"Subject: You’re employee *****
Nationality: ******
Passport # *******
DOB: ******

We are acting on behalf of our client Emirates NBD Bank PJSC who has instructed/authorized us to recover from your employee Mr. ***** the entire amount in settlement of his dues.

We seek your assistance in recovering the outstanding amount lawfully due and request you to kindly verify with the details provided and reply back to us with confirmation of the details. We request you for maintaining of confidentiality, as we do not intend to harm your firm’s or any employee’s reputation.

If the details are correctly verified, please provide us with his contact number, personal email address, duty time and location, residence address and contact numbers, which could be of help to us in reaching him.

We look forward to receiving your positive response and cooperation in this regard."

I was contacted and informed by my manager about this email. If you notice, they also mentioned my private and confidential information (Passport number) on the email which has been shared with the entire team of line managers. Can you kindly advise as to what steps can I take to remedy this? I know this is harassment and in violation of the FDCPA, Section 805(c) — “Ceasing Collection Calls and Communication”.

Can you please advise as to what steps I need to take to fix this issue? Should I send a stern email directly to this agent and then contact the bank?

The banks and collection agencies only need some consideration towards their calls and emails from the defaulter and if you show them a bit of botheration then it would definitely not stop although you write to any bank authority. They would then sell your liability to any other collection agency and they would do this again to your surprise. Just avoid them and no not show any signs of botheration at all, inform your colleagues and and management that you have no clue of who and why are they sending this if you are being questioned and this will gradually reduce by itself.
