DUBAI :

Abu Dhabi has in­cluded Hindi as the third of­fi­cial court lan­guage to im­prove ac­cess to jus­tice. The ju­di­cial depart­ment on Satur­day said it has ex­tended the adop­tion of in­ter­ac­tive forms of state­ment of claims filed be­fore courts by in­clud­ing the Hindi along­side Ara­bic and English in labour cases. Ac­cord­ing to of­fi­cial fig­ures, the In­dian com­mu­nity con­sti­tutes 30% of the pop­u­la­tion and is the largest ex­pa­tri­ate com­mu­nity in the United Arab Emi­rates. The move is aimed at help­ing Hindi speak­ers to learn about lit­i­ga­tion pro­ce­dures, their rights and du­ties with­out a lan­guage bar­rier, in ad­di­tion to fa­cil­i­tat­ing regis­tra­tion pro­ce­dures via uni­fied forms avail­able through the ADJD web­site.
