POINTS TO NOTE WHEN APPEALING AGAINST A DUBAI COURT VERDICT

January 5, 2021by Admin0

Here we are listing out few points to remember for appealing in Dubai Courts if you are not satisfied with the verdict. The foremost thing is the timeframe. It is equally applicable to both the petitioners and defendants. The appeal against a first-instance verdict should be done within 15 days from the date of Judgement. But you can take up to 30 days of time to appeal in Cassation Court against an Appeal Court’s verdict.  The decision of the Cassation Court is final and are not subject to further appeals.

The defendant or his lawyer should deposit Dh500 in minor and Dh200 in case of violations to have the appeal accepted for hearing (Refusal to accept the case for hearing). In order to appeal in a Cassation Court the lawyer should produce a signed document citing reason for appeal. Cassation Court appeal can only deal with Law points like violation of law, misinterpretation or faulty application of the law, or those which claims innocence or reduction of punishment or appealing against deportation orders.

Failure to execute the first-instance judgement entitles the defendant to attend the first hearing for appeal. In cases where only the defendant appeals, and not the Prosecution, both the Appeals Court and the Court of Cassation cannot increase the verdict against the defendant.
