Dubai Prosecutor General Ali Humaid Bin Khatem said on Monday, that suspects involved in particular delinquencies can very soon obtain an electronic bail without having to leave their passports or their guarantors’ in the possession of the Dubai Public Prosecution.

The decision comes as part of a ‘Smart Bail’ initiative, as well as falls within the Dubai Government’s plan to turn to a smart and paperless government reported Gulf News.

Bin Khatem said that these suspects will be able to renew their residencies or their passports despite being involved in legal action.

“This initiative was mainly launched to satisfy our clients as much as possible. For instance, guarantors will not have to hassle anymore and have their passports kept in custody,” the Prosecutor General told Gulf News.
