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.

I lost my job in UAE and left the country back to UK when my visa was canceled by my employer in August 2017. I have credit card debt across 3 banks totalling 90,000dhs. I had settlement agreement on one card which was 50,000dhs but since have personal reasons which I cannot keep up with my payments and the bank is refusing restructuring. I have kept payments for past 5 months but cannot do so any longer past this month.
I have read the new fine system, is it better to find an impossible solution of mine (paying an arm and leg through struggle to keep up the payments possibly through borrowing) or just let them file cheque and let it bounce to pay fine?
I don’t have any plans in near future to go to UAE, but considering work travel it is highly likely I may transit through Dubai. Hence, I would like to clear this debt in the likely situation I do transit. Can I get a friend to pay this fine for me through a police station? Or must I wait till transitting through the city, getting detained, put through jail and wait for a hearing to pay the fine? I would likely be traveling with colleagues and don’t want that embarrassment of airing my financial situation so I’d much prefer to have this dealt with without getting detained and held up!

Also since I have 3 cards, is it separate fine for each?

Please advise thank you so much

If you have no more plans to work in the UAE in future then it would be better to let the bank file a case to get court fine as judgement again you. There are different ways to close the case, one by getting held in the airport, second is by waiting to get a judgement in absence which you would have to wait for atleast 5 months, once the judgement is issued in absence you can issue POA to any lawyer and then he/she can pay the fine on your behalf and the last one would be if you cannot wait for the cases to get heard in absence after 5 months, you need to issue a POA to a lawyer and he/she would represent to open up your case and get fine as a judgement on your behalf and then pay the fine through the same lawyer. Each option would cost you with variance and yes for every card it is a separate cheque and for every seperate cheque it is a seperate case.
