Sushma thanks Abu Dhabi for including Hindi in court language

Sushma thanks Abu Dhabi for including Hindi in court language

New Delhi, Feb 11 (UNI) External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday thanked Abu Dhabi administration for their landmark decision in making Hindi as the third official language to be used in its courts.

"We thank Abu Dhabi for declaring Hindi as one of the official languages in their judicial system.

This will make justice delivery system simpler and more accessible to our people," Ms Swaraj tweeted.

Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, has included Hindi as the third official language used in its courts, alongside Arabic and English, as part of a move designed to improve access to justice.

The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department on Saturday said it has extended the adoption of interactive forms of statement of claims filed before courts by including the Hindi language alongside Arabic and English in labour cases.

This is aimed at helping Hindi speakers to learn about litigation procedures, their rights and duties without a language barrier, media reports said.
