A letter to this effect was received by the Ministry of Education from the Ministry of Justice some days ago.

The six educationists—Omar Humaidan Al Mansouri, Naguib Ahmed Amiri, Ismail Al Hosani, Saeed Majid Al Shamsi, Aiysha Abdullah and Jameela Mohammed Abdullah—had filed a case in November 2006 demanding reinstatement.

As per the provisions in the Pensions Act, they were being paid 60 per cent of their basic salaries.

The Abu Dhabi Court of First Instance had ordered on November 29 last year the quashing of termination orders. It also ordered reinstatement of the six plaintiffs.

According to the court’s ruling, the reinstated educationists were entitled to 40 per cent of their basic salaries from the date of their termination till reinstatement. The Cabinet, which was the defendant in the case, filed an appeal in the Court of Appeals, but the latter upheld the lower court’s verdict.

Commenting on the fair dispensation of justice, the defence attorney underlined the importance of integrity and independence of judiciary in the country.

“The judiciary in the country is fair in implementing the provisions of the law, irrespective of the parties concerned in the lawsuit,” the defence lawyer said.
