By 2021, the UAE judicial system will see a smart leap as it plans to provide electronic trials without courtrooms; video-conferencing during court hearings; and real-time translations in court proceedings via a screen.
The Ministry of Justice launched four initiatives to be implemented in the next four years to ensure fair and swifter trials while ensuring easy access to justice. Sultan bin Saeed Al Badi, Minister of Justice, said innovation and technology were the main pillars of these initiatives to parallel the country’s rapid growth and move towards its smart transformation.
Al Badi added that the initiatives were launched after conducting international field visits and signing partnerships with global firms including The Hague Institute for the Internationalization of Law.
