The Ajman Police helped settle financial disputes worth over Dh10.6 million in 2020. Through their special initiative called ‘Falak Tayeb’, the police helped restore the amounts to 724 rightful claimants.

Colonel Ali Jabr Al Shamsi, Director of the Comprehensive Police Stations at Ajman Police, said the initiative helps out people who cannot repay their debts.

Disputes included those arising from vehicle rents and real estate settlements. The police helped the disputing parties agree on a repayment mechanism.

Colonel Al Shamsi explained that the initiative reduced work volumes at courts and freed up prisons.

How it works

When a financial dispute complaint is lodged at a police station, officers call up the other party. The police would then help set up a repayment scheme that is acceptable to both parties.
