People can report any illegal act or provide information about suspicious activities via app
Abu Dhabi: Members of the public can now report acts that are punishable by law using a new application launched by the Abu Dhabi Public Prosecution.
Ali Mohammed Al Beloushi, Attorney-General of the emirate of Abu Dhabi, said the new application — ‘Inform the Prosecution’ — which can be downloaded on mobile phones through iOS and Android operating systems was launched as part of the Public Prosecution’s commitment to harness advanced technology to deliver high-quality judicial services.
“The application seeks to increase communication between the community and the judiciary through modern technology, in a way that preserves community security, as part of our corporate social responsibility programmes.
“Security and stability in the community can only be maintained through joint efforts by both individuals and institutions, each in his position,” Al Beloushi stated.
Members of the public can report any illegal act or provide information about suspicious activities or behaviour to the Public Prosecution.
Hassan Al Hammadi, director of the Prosecutions Department, said the application is available at App Store and Play Store in both Arabic and English languages for Emirati citizens, residents and visitors.
“Through the application, the user can explain the illegal act, its location and the time of happening, and attach evidence — a photo, video or voice clip — and then send it to the Public Prosecution,” Al Hammadi said, noting that providing the identity of the sender is optional.
“A number for the e-notification will be sent to the sender’s mobile phone through a text message, following which legal procedures will be initiated,” he explained.
