Sharjah: Sharjah police have settled 2,269 financial disputes in the first half of 2019 without cases having to go to court, an official said on Sunday.

The police have returned more than Dh115 million as part of its ‘Reconciliation is Good’ initiative.

Brigadier Khalifa Klandar, director of police stations department in Sharjah police, said that when creditors file a police report, the station calls the other party to try to convince them to pay, giving them a time frame to do so.

“The results were positive as parties pay the money to the creditors in police stations or give a chance for them to settle the disputes in a friendly manner, away from courtrooms,” Brig Klandar said in statement.
