A group of twelve that included three women, comprising eleven prosecutors and a judge, were sworn in before His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Presidential Affairs and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD), on beginning their duties as members of the judiciary body in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
During his meeting today with the new ADJD members on the sidelines of the oath-taking ceremony at the Presidential Palace, Sheikh Mansour conveyed the congratulations of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates, on the occasion of the commencement of their duties. Sheikh Mansour went on to express HH the President's wishes for their success in fulfilling their duties under both the umbrella of the law and respect for human rights, affirming the pride of the leadership in this constellation of young men and women in the country.
Sheikh Mansour said that the UAE's position at the international and regional levels was the result of an ambitious vision and consistent efforts to build institutions based on the rule of law and the establishment of justice. Due to such efforts, the country is now well placed on the Global Competitiveness Map as one of the most important investment destinations for global capitalists.
Meanwhile, Sheikh Mansour has ordered the new judge and prosecutors to comply with the standards and principles set by the legislators for preserving the rule of law, and for protecting the rights of individuals and groups within the principles of tolerance that characterize the UAE as a source of cultural and social wealth. His Highness also made reference to the ADJD's strategy in building a judiciary system that is effective and efficient, and that meets the requirements for rapid growth at all levels in Abu Dhabi.
