How can arbitration be enforced?

An arbitration proceeding is similar to traditional court litigation in many ways. However, it has many advantages to offer in comparison to traditional litigation. An Arbitration procedure is private and confidential and, in many ways, faster and less expensive when compared to traditional litigation channels. For these advantages, companies often prefer to choose arbitration proceedings for dispute resolution and ensure that an arbitration clause is pre-agreed between the parties on commercial contracts.

Increasing reliance on arbitration proceedings is also considering the reliable enforcement options for an arbitral award in numerous international jurisdictions. This is due to the international treaty of the New York Convention on the ‘Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards of 1958’ (‘New York Convention’), which was entered into force on 7 June 1959, allowing arbitration awards to be enforced internationally in various jurisdictions. Around one hundred and fifty countries have ratified the New York Convention, which constitutes more than three-quarters of the world countries. The New York convention requires that the signatory states (contracting states) ensure recognition and enforcement of the arbitration award made in other contracting states, thus, paving way for international arbitration process and its recognition. The United Arab Emirates is a signatory to the New York Convention, and adopted the said treaty by enacting the Federal law decree no. 43 of 2006 on ‘The United Arab Emirates Joining the Convention of New York on Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards’.

Enforcement of arbitration award in the UAE:
The Federal Law No. (6) of 2018 on ‘Arbitration’ and its amendments (Arbitration law) constitute the arbitration law in the UAE. Article 3 of the Arbitration law describes arbitration as ‘international arbitration’ if any of the parties at the time of conclusion of the arbitration agreement have their place of business in two or more different states, or if a subject matter of the arbitration dispute is connected to different statesetc.

Article 55 of the Arbitration Law states the procedures and requirements for enforcing an arbitral award as follows:
Enforcement of Award Article (55):
A party looking to enforce an arbitral award shall submit a request for its confirmation and enforcement with the chief justice of the Court, together with the following: 
(a) The original award or a certified copy thereof.
(b) A copy of the Arbitration Agreement. 
(c) An Arabic translation of the arbitral award, attested by a competent authority, if the award is not issued in Arabic. 
(d) A copy of the minutes of deposit of the award in Court. 

The chief justice of the Court (Appeal court) or whoever he delegates from among its judges shall order the arbitral award confirmed and enforced within sixty days of submission of the request for its confirmation and enforcement, unless it finds one or more of the grounds for setting aside the award (discussed under Article 53 of the arbitration law).

One of the major new developments introduced by the arbitration law is allowing for easy and simpler enforcement proceedings. Enforcement of an arbitral award can now be commenced before the court of appeal by filing for ratification and enforcement of the award. There are also stricter grounds incorporated to ensure that arbitrators are bound to close arbitral proceedings in a timely fashion and also provisions that ensure that arbitrators carry out their function in an unbiased and neutral manner. The UAE Arbitration law is modelled on the UNCITRAL (United Nations Commission on International Trade Law) model code which represents the international best practices. The adoption of this law in the UAE signifies the country’s commitment to becoming an advanced arbitration-friendly jurisdiction.

Witnesses, Photos, and Video After a Car Accident
Have you just been in a car accident? If so, you’ll know firsthand that following recommended courses of action — while necessary — is not always easy. You can blame the difficulty of following these steps on the initial shock that follows a car accident. However, if you can only remember to do one thing after a car accident, the best place to start is to gather evidence. While states have different laws about what counts as evidence after a car accident, a good rule of thumb is to take photographs and videos on the scene. If possible, gather testimony from nearby witnesses to corroborate your photos and videos after the accident. With enough evidence, your personal injury lawyer will have more to go on when building your claims case. We will walk you through using witnesses, photos, and videos as evidence after a car accident, so you have a better chance to prove your innocence and claim the damages that are owed to you. Are Photos and Videos Admissible as Evidence? For most states, photos and videos are admissible as evidence. However, to use photos and videos as evidence, they need to be relevant to the car accident that just occurred. Photographs or videos need to document damages to both vehicles. Photographic and video graphic evidence can also prove injuries. For this reason, it is a good idea to photograph injuries even before emergency medical services arrive. Photos and videos are pivotal to a personal injury claims case. While there are ways to prove another driver’s negligence without these, tangible evidence like photos and videos will shorten the process. Are Witness Statements Admissible as Evidence? Witness statements are admissible as evidence during legal proceedings. Your attorney may use witness statements to confirm the findings yielded by photographic and video evidence. However, there is a caveat to the veracity of witness statements. When witnesses are called upon to offer statements, they must do so under oath. Anything said by a witness who is not under oath will be deemed as “hearsay” by most courts. How to Gather Evidence After a Car Accident Gathering evidence may seem like a daunting and complicated task, but in reality, the process is straightforward. All you need is your phone and something to record information on. Follow these easy steps to gathering tangible evidence to build your car accident injury case: 1. Leave Everything Unchanged and Unmoved Before taking videos and photos after a car accident, ensure that everything remains unchanged. Doing this will prevent accusations of you altering or tampering with evidence to suit your interests. Immediately after the incident, take out your phone to begin photographing and taking videos. 2. Take Photos or Videos of Both Vehicles Most drivers erroneously photograph only the damage sustained by their own vehicle. While this can help in an injury claim, it will do little to confirm the other driver’s negligence. For the best results, take pictures or videos of both vehicles. In addition to the damage, be sure to photograph your license plate as well as the other driver’s. Photographs showing both license plates will prove which vehicles were involved and the relevance of your photos as evidence. 3. Record Statements from Witnesses on the Scene If witnesses are present, you can gather statements from them after taking videos or photographs. You can take statements and write them down along with the contact details of the witnesses. Doing this will make things easier for your car accident injury attorney when they need follow-up statements. You may also record the statements of witnesses using your phone. You may take statements as videos or as recordings. Either way, have the witness disclose their names just in case your lawyer or the authorities need follow-up statements.

How is international arbitration implemented in the UAE during the new normal?
The number of arbitration cases being registered in the United Arab Emirates has been steadily increasing in recent years. This is especially so for Dubai in terms of commercial litigation, with arbitration being included as a standard clause for dispute resolution, whether relating to real estate matters, construction or commercial contracts. The year 2021 has seen critical changes in the arbitration sector with a new decree anointing the ‘Dubai International Arbitration Centre’ (DIAC) as a sole arbitral chamber in the emirate, which now essentially abolishes the Dubai International Financial Centre-London Court of International Arbitration (DIFC-LCIA). The said decree is in effect from September 2021 and establishes the Dubai International Arbitration Centre to act as the sole dispute-resolution seat in the emirate of Dubai. In this article, we will particularly discuss international arbitration in the UAE and the provisions of the UAE Arbitration Law (Federal Law No. 6/2018 on ‘Arbitration’). It is important to note that the UAE Arbitration Law also applies to international, commercial arbitrations conducted outside the UAE if the parties to the dispute agree to the same. International arbitration has had its crucial impact felt during the Covid pandemic, where the international arbitration process demonstrated its resilience and flexibility in resolving disputes by delivering through technological means, including holding sessions remotely. International arbitration rules concerning the use of technology: Article 28(4) of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (‘UNCITRAL’) Arbitration Rules of 2010 (revised rules) allows for arbitral tribunals the power to have expert witnesses to be examined through means of videoconferencing. Article 28 In the event of an oral hearing, the arbitral Tribunal shall give the parties adequate advance notice of the date, time and place thereof. Witnesses, including expert witnesses, may be heard under the conditions and examined in the manner set by the arbitral Tribunal. Hearings shall be held in camera unless the parties agree otherwise. The arbitral Tribunal may require the retirement of any witness or witnesses, including expert witnesses, during the testimony of such other witnesses, except that a witness, including an expert witness, who is a party to the arbitration shall not, in principle, be asked to retire. The arbitral Tribunal may direct that witnesses, including expert witnesses, be examined through means of telecommunication that do not require their physical presence at the hearing (such as videoconference) UAE arbitration process on the use of technology: The UAE arbitration law is largely based on the international UNCITRAL model arbitration law. The DIAC Rules of 2007 and its amendments govern the arbitration proceedings of the Dubai International Arbitration Centre. Article 20 of the DIAC rules determines the place of arbitration and states that, Article 20.1:The parties may agree in writing on the seat of the arbitration. In the absence of such a choice, the seat of arbitration shall be Dubai, unless the Executive Committee determines in view of all the circumstances, and after having given the parties an opportunity to make a written comment, that another seat is more appropriate. Article 20.2: The Tribunal may, after consultation with the parties, conduct hearings or meetings at any place that it considers appropriate. The Tribunal may deliberate wherever it considers appropriate. Article 20.3: The award shall be deemed to have been made at the seat of the arbitration. Further, article 34.7 of the DIAC Arbitration rules 2017, states that, ‘The Tribunal shall only require witnesses who have submitted a written statement and who have been requested to provide oral testimony during the hearing, to swear an oath prior to giving oral evidence, subject to any mandatory provisions of the applicable procedural law. The Tribunal shall have the authority to accept oaths and conduct examinations in person or by electronic means including telephone or video conference or a combination thereof, provided it has first satisfied itself of the identity of the witness’. Both the said articles thus essentially allow wide discretion to the tribunal to determine that a virtual setting would be the most appropriate venue. Further, there are express provisions and procedures incorporated in the rules that allow for conducting of witness hearings through electronic means of communication such as video conferencing (as included above). In the Covid era, these flexible rules have proven their worth, and international arbitration in the UAE has demonstrated its resilience and effectiveness. This practice continues into the post covid era as well. https://www.professionallawyer.me/legal-articles/arbitration/international-arbitration-implemented-in-the-uae-during-the-new-normal
What Actions can be considered as Molestation of Women?
The United Nations declaration on the elimination of violence against women defines violence against women as "any act of gender-based violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual, or mental harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or in private life."Sexual violence, on the other hand, is specifically defined as "any sexual act, attempt to obtain a sexual act, or other act directed against a person's sexuality using coercion, by any person regardless of their relationship to the victim, in any setting. It includes rape, attempted rape, unwanted sexual touching and other non-contact forms". The estimates published by the World Health Organization (WHO) shows that 1 in 3 women comprising 30% of the women worldwide have been subjected to either physical or sexual violence, either partner violence or non-partner violence in their lifetime. This is a staggering census, and much impetus is on the enforcement of strict laws against sexual violence. UAE Laws Governing Molestation: The UAE laws pertaining to sexual harassment are codified in Federal law number 3 of 1987, promulgating the penal code and its amendments (UAE Penal Code) which provide the provisions governing sexual harassment. The UAE penal code provides a broad definition for sexual harassment as, 'Sexual harassment shall mean excessive annoyance of others by repeating acts, words or signals that would molest them, for the purpose of pushing them to respond to their own sexual desires or the desires of others.' (Article 359 bis). The UAE Penal Code defines molestation as an indecent act either by words or actions in a public road or in a frequented place and imposes a penalty for molestation as one-year Imprisonment and /or a fine of ten thousand dirhams. Article 359 (1) states, 'Imprisonment for a period not exceeding one year and a fine not exceeding ten thousand Dirhams or one of said two penalties shall be imposed on whoever molests a female in an indecent way by words or acts on a public road or in a much-frequented place. The same penalty shall be imposed on any male, disguised in female apparel, who enters a place reserved for women or where entry is forbidden for other than women. Should he perpetrate a crime in this condition, this shall be considered an aggravating circumstance.' Sexual abuse can take many forms and manners; it can be touching of a victim in a sexual matter or forcing a victim the perpetrator in a sexual manner to or even forcing a victim to look at sexual body parts of the perpetrator or otherwise or forcing the victim to watch sexual activity. The keyword in all such circumstances is the concept of 'Consent'. Such consent should be mutual, voluntary, sober, honest and informed. Such consent should not be vitiated due to minority of age or any other factors, and further, it should not be in breach of any existing laws or rules. https://www.professionallawyer.me/legal-articles/criminal-law/what-actions-can-be-considered-as-molestation-of-women
How will the new zero-tolerance drunk driving law affect your car insurance?
You might have come across the recent changes in the UAE federal laws that has relaxed the previous rules which imposed strict license requirements for the purchase of alcohol in the region. Albeit such rules have now been removed, however, the UAE still follows and applies zero tolerance when it comes to alcohol consumption while driving. This essentially means that, there is not concept of minimum blood alcohol limit in the UAE, meaning that there is a zero-tolerance policy and thus, despite the level of blood alcohol a person may have while driving he can be liable for a fine and jail term. Drunk driving: It is crucial to understand that, the UAE has many strict and rigorous laws in place especially when it comes to public safety. Pursuant to the Federal Law number 21 of 1995 concerning ‘traffic’ and its amendments (“Traffic Law”), driving in UAE under the influence of alcohol or any other anesthetic or narcotic substances is punishable by the law. Pursuant to Article 49 (6) of the traffic law, ‘Driving or attempting to driving a vehicle on the road while under the effect of alcoholic drinks or anesthetic substances and the like, shall be sentenced to imprisonment and / or to a minimum fine of Twenty- Five Thousand Dirhams’. This fine amount can go higher as well depending on the veracity of the offence and the resultant damages caused. Such penalty will be adjudged by the Court and applies in instances of: * Driving under the influence of Alcohol * Driving under the influence of drugs or brain affecting substances or any other similar items * Causing someone’s death * Causing a serious accident or injuries Further, pursuant to article 59(3) of the traffic law immediate arrest will follow. The said article states, 'A policeman may arrest any vehicle driver if found involved in the commitment of one of the following crimes including ‘Driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or any other narcotic or the like, thus depriving him of his power of control over it’. How it affects your insurance: Insurers have the right to refuse to pay accident claims if the driver's blood-alcohol level is positive. A mandatory part of raising any vehicle insurance claims requires to provide a police certificate describing how the accident occurred and the cause of the accident and the resultant damages. When the cause of the accident is due to the fault of the driver due to drunken driving then the same can be used to reject the insurance claim in itself. Black points are also directly imposed on the driver’s license for the most serious of traffic offences including drunken driving. The maximum number of black points that can be accumulated on your driving license is 24, and fines are imposed for each such violation. If the number of back points acquired on a license reach 24 in number, then the license can be confiscated for a period of six months, and the driver will be required to attend further corrective courses in driving. Acquiring a number of black points on your license can also potentially cost you more on your car insurance. With more back points acquired for traffic violations, you will need to pay a higher premium on a car insurance policy. The traffic regulations in the UAE are thus extremely strict in order to ensure protection of road users and to reduce traffic casualties. The traffic laws are regularly amended to bring in innovative changes as the UAE aims to achieve its aim of reducing traffic causalities from every 6 per 100,000 people to every 3 per 100,000 people by this year. https://www.professionallawyer.me/legal-articles/criminal-law/zero-tolerance-drunk-driving-law-affect-your-car-insurance
What are the Updates on Tenancy law for Family-only Residential Buildings in the UAE?
Pursuant to Law Number 2 of 2007 on Regulations of Landlord-Tenant Relationship in Sharjah and its amendments, low-income bachelors or labourers are not allowed to live in certain residential neighbourhoods which have been specially demarcated for family use. Instead, there are certain industrial areas allocated specially for low-income bachelors and labourers in Sharjah, wherein they can take accommodation and wherein it is also possible for them to obtain shared accommodation. For example, areas such as Al Majaz and Al Nahda have been designated for family accommodations. Certain exemptions may be granted to higher-income executive bachelors holding higher degrees and professionals such as doctors, engineers to live in residential areas demarcated for families with the direct permission of the landlord. Pursuant to the above the law, thereby, it is required that upon obtaining tenancy in family accommodations, a tenant is required to give the details of all of his family members who will be occupying the tenanted unit, along with copies of their income and marriage certificate as well. Sharing of accommodation: Subject to the specific consent of the landlords, accommodation sharing might be allowed in certain areas for low-income category personals and labourers. The overall number of persons living in accommodation should not exceed certain limitations, such as: * three people in studio apartments * four people in one bedroom apartments * six people in two-bedroom apartments * Nine people in three-bedroom apartments Similarly, in Dubai, there are certain industrial areas specifically designated for housing industrial workers and labourers, such as the Al Quoz, Mushainah area. Further, there are specific residential areas such as Muraqqabat and Al Rigga areas, where sharing of accommodation is allowed for bachelors. The parameters for sharing of accommodation in such designated areas are generally bases on the rule that a minimum area of 40 square feet should be allotted per person in the bedroom. It is also to be understood that until recently, it was illegal in the UAE for un-married couples or people of opposite genders to live together in an accommodation. However, with the recent changes brought in, the same is no longer illegal, however subject to the rules that apply to bachelor accommodations. Further, pursuant to Article 25(1)(b) of Dubai Rent Law, allows the landlord to evict a tenant when: "Where the tenant uses the real property or allows others to use it for any illegal purpose or for a purpose which breaches public order or morals." Thereby, tenants should ensure to check with their respective landlords the rules and regulations imposed on the residential property and should endeavour to abide by them in order to avoid potential eviction. Though presumably simple enough, tenancy law can often prove challenging for residents and therefore, wherever possible, they should seek legal advice and assistance to avoid disadvantageous circumstances and potential losses https://www.professionallawyer.me/legal-articles/property-law/what-are-the-updates-on-tenancy-law-for-family-only-residential-buildings-in-the-uae

How to deal with a car accident in the UAE and its fines?
Car accidents can occur due to a variety of reasons and more often than not, negligence constitutes a key contributing factor. Fines are typically imposed for traffic violations in accordance with the Federal Law No. 21 of 1995 Concerning Traffic and its amendments (‘Traffic Law’). The list of fines for traffic violations is often updated annually and regularly published by all emirates. 3 Important Steps to Follow When Involved in a Vehicular Accident: 1. Report the Accident In cases of serious injury or damage, contact the police on the emergency number 999, and request an ambulance service, if needed. At the same time, if it is a minor car accident, then the non-emergency police helpline can be contacted at 901. In Dubai, all minor accident cases can be reported in an easy application process by using the website of Dubai police, and you can place your accident report online and then obtain the police report as well. You might also be requested to share pictures of the accident through the application. 2. Obtain Police Report When an accident is reported to the police, they will take measures to identify the defaulting party by accessing the scene, photographs and other digital means. Upon completion of the checks, a police report will be issued, which constitutes the most important document ascertaining the accident and is also required in proceeding with insurance claims. 3. Insurance Claim It is crucial to immediately contact your vehicle insurance provider and to report the accident and the probable damages. Once the police report is obtained, it is required to be provided to the insurance company, to be eligible for the insurance claim. UAE enforces strict traffic laws to further its goal for safer roads. While minor traffic violations might invite-only fines, for the more serious traffic violations, stricter penalties, including jail terms, can be imposed, especially when the safety of others is put at risk. For instance, reckless driving could invite fines, black points and confiscation of the vehicle. The website of the Dubai Police states as follows. Driving a vehicle in a way that jeopardizes the driver or others’ lives or their safety or security or driving a vehicle in a way that may cause damage to the public and private facilities: AED 2,000 in fines; 23 black points and the vehicle confiscation period of 60 days for light vehicles. However, for more serious traffic violations, the penalties are adjudged by the Court and may include imprisonment and fines. This is in respect of more serious offences such as: * Driving under the influence of Alcohol * Driving under the influence of drugs or brain affecting substances or any other similar items * Causing someone’s death * Causing a serious accident or injuries https://www.professionallawyer.me/legal-articles/criminal-law/how-to-deal-with-a-car-accident-in-uae-and-its-fines
