Abu Dhabi Judicial Department has recently announced the launch of a campaign to promote the presence of the Abu Dhabi CAS Alternative Hearing Centre, which is one of the three centres affiliated with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) worldwide. This lies within the framework of an integrated strategy adopted by ADJD to elevate the centre’s role in a manner that fits with the position enjoyed by the UAE.
Yousef Saeed Al Abri, the Undersecretary of ADJD, explained that the plan aims to strengthen the CAS centre in Abu Dhabi with two main goals: to develop its performance in accordance with the best international practices, and to focus on promoting the centre at the local and international levels.
