Ras Al Khaimah - Litigants may now, and for the first time, inquire about their lawsuits at the RAK Courts online, following a drive initiated to ease and expedite judicial procedures in line with the requirements of the e-government scheme.

Lawyers can check the documents of their cases and know about any development from their own offices without physically going to court, according to a top official.

Adviser Ahmed Mohammed Al Khatiri, Chairman of the RAK Courts, said the move is part of electronic connection between the courts and Emirates Identify Authority (Eida).

“Enquiring about lawsuits online is an additional value the RAK Courts are offering to their customers particularly as the civil and personal status lawsuits, registered online hit 33.8 per cent last year.”

The new service has so much boosted lawyers and customers’ satisfaction with the judicial services being offered to 97 per cent by the end of 2014, he added. “The RAK Courts have offered free training sessions to its customers to be fully aware of online registration.”

Al Khatiri said electronic connection with Eida has become more important with a salient rise of 47.93 per cent in the demand of affidavit services as compared to 2013. “Over 14,000 judicial services were processed online last year.”
