Shaikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Presidential Affairs and Chairman of Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, issued on Wednesday a decree establishing a public prosecution and specialised judicial departments in the Court of First Instance to investigate crimes against domestic workers.
