UAE: Judgments From Great Britain and Northern Ireland Can be Enforced

The UAE’s Justice Ministry has announced that judgements issued in Great Britain and Northern Ireland can be enforced in the UAE.

They can be in line with the reciprocity principle in the Treaty between the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United Arab Emirates on Judicial Assistance in Civil and Commercial Matters.

This principle is contained in Article 85 of Cabinet Decision No. 57/2018.

The move follows the English Courts’ enforcement of a Dubai judgement in the case of Lenkor Energy Trading DMCC v Puri (2020) EWHC 75 (QB) (Lenkor).
