(Dubai) – Two judges of the Cassation Court, six judges of the Appeals Court and 15 judges of the Primary Courts in Dubai were sworn in at Zabeel Palace before H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. Another four counsellors took the oath of office as chief public prosecutors in Dubai before Sheikh Mohammed.
Sheikh Mohammed urged the judges and prosecutors to administer justice with integrity and loyalty, to respect laws in Dubai and to value people, whether plaintiffs or defendants, considering human dignity and their rights as “red lines” that should not be crossed or compromised because “our religion, Arab and human values don’t tolerate that.”
