The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) has introduced a new mobile application to allow people to browse and bid for items seized in court cases. Users can bid directly on the app, whether they live in the UAE or outside the country.

Yousef Saeed Al Abri, Undersecretary of the ADJD, said that this launch falls within the scope of their digital transformation plan, which involves taking advantage of modern technologies to develop an innovative judicial system.

The ADJD aims to ensure "the highest levels of transparency, clarity and impartiality" and to preserve the rights of the parties involved.

The new auction app, ADJD Auctions has been registered with the Ministry of Economy as an intellectual property right of the Judicial Department. It offers quick access to the services using digital identity and innovative options for bidding such as express bidding and automatic electronic bidding.

The items auctioned include real estate, vehicles, distinguished car license plates, and movable property of various kinds.

It also offers the ability for bidders to choose between three membership options, namely Silver, Gold and Platinum.

Emiratis and residents of the country can use digital identity to access the features of the app. Users outside the country can create an account using a phone number and a password. The app offers several options for paying the pre-auction security deposit, such as credit card, bank transfer or cheque.
