‘Smart ZAWAJ and ‘Custody and Sharing System' aligned with Dubai Paperless Strategy 2021

08 October 2019. Dubai, United Arab Emirates; The Dubai Courts is showcasing two of its latest smart services at the ongoing 39th edition of GITEX Technology Week, the largest technology exhibition in the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia, being held at the Dubai World Trade Center. The ‘Smart ZAWAJ' and ‘Custody and Shared Seizing System' services help facilitate faster litigation procedures and enhance the efficiency of the judicial system, in line with Dubai's accelerated economic development needs. The two services are part of the Courts' commitment to launch initiatives in support of Dubai Paperless Strategy 2021.

H.E. Tarish Eid Al Mansoori, General Manager of Dubai Courts, said: “GITEX is an important strategic platform for us to highlight the benefits of our smart services on the global stage in support of Dubai's steady growth. The ‘Smart ZAWAJ' and ‘Custody and Shared Seizing System' services are a powerful impetus for Dubai Courts' smart transformation initiative launched to make traditional court procedures digital. Our initiative is anchored on Dubai Paperless Strategy, which aims to harness modern technology to build an integrated and paperless government system. The Strategy seeks to establish a smart government in Dubai to provide the public with services beyond their expectations.  This is in accordance with the directive of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.”

H.E. Al Mansoori added: “The two services are designed to improve the quality, efficiency, and effectiveness of the judicial and legal systems. We want to make our systems smart, innovative, and forward-looking, which are the main pillars of our Court Strategy 2017-2021 launched to create ‘leading courts of excellence globally.' The ‘Smart ZAWAJ' and ‘Custody and Shared Seizing System' are an important addition to our initiatives to support the national efforts to reduce the number of government auditors by 80 per cent by 2018. They enable our customers to transact with us remotely without the need to visit our offices. By doing so, we are seeking to bring them happiness, which is one of our top priorities. To further improve the judicial system, we will continue with our smart transformation path by implementing technology-driven procedures and services, in line with the goal of Dubai Plan 2021 to build a smart, integrated, and connected city that is at par with the world.”

The first-of-its-kind ‘Custody and Shared Seizing System,' available in Arabic and English, enables customers to manage bookings, subscriptions, and judicial sales in a single, unified platform. The platform, which consolidates the funds, automates the processes of seizure and sale of funds, and distributes the proceeds, aims to safeguard the rights of the parties to the joint funds, accelerate relevant processes, and ensure the rights of all concerned individuals.

The Dubai Court plans to introduce the ‘Smart ZAWAJ' system by 2020. Under the system, a smart marriage contract will be issued electronically to avoid paperwork. The smart application, which can be downloaded by the customer, will allow the entry of data of the husband and the wife through their assigned ID number.  They can also choose their preferred authorized officials from the innovative system's list of 84 persons allowed to perform a marriage ceremony in Dubai. Afterwards, they will have to coordinate with the authorized person, who can go directly to the venue without the need to submit any papers. The payment for the contract will also be done via the app. The contract will then be directly e-mailed to the husband and the wife.
