Abu Dhabi: The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) has implemented a system for the automatic cancellation of enforcement decisions relating to financial payments in all judicial rulings.
This initiative establishes the ADJD as the first judicial authority in the region to deploy such a mechanism.
The primary objective is to streamline the enforcement decision procedures by leveraging intelligent and precise indicators that instantly monitor payment statuses. Once the respondent completes the payment through the available channels on the ADJD’s application or website, the system promptly initiates the cancellation of enforcement decisions linked solely to the payment component. Subsequently, these decisions are electronically approved and forwarded to the relevant authorities.
Mr. Yousef Saeed Alabri, Undersecretary of the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, underlined that this adoption aligns with the strategic priorities of the Judicial Department. This move is in accordance with the directives of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President, Deputy Prime Minister, Chairman of the Presidential Court, and Chairman of ADJD, aiming to develop pioneering, smart, and innovative courts that deliver world-class services.
Mr. Alabri emphasized that ongoing efforts to modernize the judicial system and attain excellence in service provision contribute to strengthening the competitive position of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. This initiative offers a pioneering and distinguished experience for court users, utilizing digital transformation, modern technologies, and smart, fast systems enhanced by artificial intelligence.
Mr. Almarzouqi stressed that these automated procedures significantly reduce the time required for respondents to cancel enforcement decisions post-payment. They eliminate the need for enforcement officers and judges to intervene in the process. Respondents can conveniently download a copy of the cancellation decision via the smart app. This allows them to proceed with travel arrangements in the event of a travel ban or present it at police stations for cases involving arrest warrants due to non-payment. Moreover, the cancellation orders are sent to relevant banks for the removal of seizure orders on deposits and bank accounts.
