Two judges of the Cassation Court, six judges of the Appeals Court and 15 judges of the Primary Courts in Dubai were sworn in on Tuesday at Zabeel Palace before His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
Another four counsellors took the oath of office as chief public prosecutors in Dubai before Sheikh Mohammed.

Sheikh Mohammed stressed that laws should be respected and implemented for all and that no one is above the law, regardless of his position and status.
