The Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) courts have received 1,500 lawsuits online in the last five months, according to a top official.

"The electronic registration of lawsuits launched in April is gaining popularity among residents," said Ibrahim Al Zaabi, director-general of the RAK courts. He added that filing of lawsuits has seen a significant rise of 23 per cent since the launch of the e-system in April.

The RAK Courts have also launched another smart service that gives advocates and law firms access to lawsuits registered remotely. Mohammed Fawzi, a lawyer, said the new service has made their job as advocates easier. "It simplifies our registration, brings happiness to customers, and replaces paper transactions with electronic ones."
