DUBAI: The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department has announced it will suspend all rental property eviction cases for a period of two months, in a bid to support residents amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The order, made by Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, also included the halting of executive procedures such as imprisonment, blocking of bank accounts, seizure of vehicles, stocks, and assets for the same period.
The decision, however, doesn’t include cases to alimony and labor disputes, according to a report by state-run news agency WAM.
