The programme includes rulings and legal principles issued by the Cassation Court in Dubai from 1988 to 2009. It can be uploaded in a matter of seconds from the Apple store on iPhone and iPad for a special offer during Gitex. It has special and advanced features of research.

The project was launched on the sidelines of Gitex at a Press conference by Issam Eissa Al Humaidan, Dubai’s Attorney- General, and Ahmed bin Hazeem, director- general of the Dubai Courts. “It is a special electronic service which is helpful to the judicial community and the researchers in laws including penal, civil, labour and others,” Al Humaidan said.

There are loads of principles since the establishment of Dubai Courts in 1988 and until 2009 which could be of great use for individuals concerned in the judiciary and the legal systems. “The initiative was taken by the Public Prosecution while the data basis was supplied by the Dubai Courts,” Al Humaidan added.

Ahmed bin Hazeem praised the programme which could save the time and efforts of researchers and users. “It may look plain in form but it is rich in content. It is a clear indication of the partnership between the Public Prosecution and the Dubai Courts. We, as members in the Justice and Security Sector Committee, look forward to serving the Dubai Strategic Plan”.

Previously, the Public Prosecution had launched the e-laws, which is a practical e-version of the UAE laws including 15 federal laws, that can be uploaded easily and for free on iPhone and iPad.

‘Ask me’ is another service announced during Gitex. It is an advanced version of the self -service device launched by the Public Prosecution in last October. Recently, 20 devices were installed in the police posts, Public Prosecution, Dubai Courts, Traffic Prosecution and the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs.
