Author(s): Ibrahim Suleiman Al Qatawneh & Moustafa Elmetwaly Kandeel

This study has analytically dealt with the penalty warrant in the UAE Law particularly since the penalty warrant is an alternative form to the Federal Laws of Procedures, issued by the public prosecution to adjudicate misdemeanours and contraventions in accordance with the provisions of Article (333) of the Federal Laws of Criminal Procedure. It aims to adjudicate the lawsuits quickly and without arguments from the litigants and their absence. This study addressed the legislative provisions of the penalty warrant system by presenting the penalty warrant's concept and nature, its conditions and abolition as well as its authenticity, and execution forms. Following a review of the issue of the penalty warrant, this system turned out to be highly important due to its practicable merits that serve justice and generate, when applied, great benefits for the judiciary and individuals.
