Sharjah police gives restores Dh142m to owners

By Staff

Sharjah Police has helped resolve 5,665 cases in 2014 by restoring over Dh142 million to their owners with aims to strengthen ties and solve financial disputes.

Head of police stations , Omar Al Suwaidi  said, "All cases involved bounced cheques and money disputes."

The cases include all disputes pending in police stations across the emirate with an aim to spread forgiveness and cooperation among residents.

Police gave the loan borrowers sufficient time to repay as a part of the reconciliation process and were generous  to not file a law suit against them. Both the parties came to amicable grounds thus resolving the matter efficiently.

Thus restoring Dh142,380,134 in cases from January to December 2014.

Al Suwaidi pointed out that the initiative would reduce the number of cases from going to court and prevent the loan payer from holding a criminal record which could turn out be a hindrance for him in future.
