Pregnant Criminal

Question 3: A lady asks: My friend is charged in a criminal case punishable by imprisonment. At present, she is being under investigation by prosecutors. The investigation is in the final stages, and the case may be forwarded to the Criminal Court next week, as told to her by the prosecutor. My friend is seven months pregnant. If she gets sentenced to jail, what will happen to her? Where will she deliver the baby, in prison or in the hospital?

Answer 3: I would like to advise the questioner’s friend that if the case has been forwarded to the court, she may apply to have the sentence delayed in case she is convicted, in accordance with the article 295 of the UAE’S Criminal Procedures Law which states: “If the convict who has been sentenced with imprisonment was pregnant, it is permitted to delay the execution [of the jail term], till she gives birth to her child, as well [after] three months”. The court may respond to such an application.

Labour card replacement fees slashed 95%

Labour CardThe ministry of labour has decided to slash fees for the issuance of labour cards to replace lost or damaged cards by up to 95 per cent but it kept fees for labour recruitment offices unchanged, a local daily said on Monday.

From Dh2,500, the fees now required to issue a replacement for lost or damaged labour card (category 3) have been reduced to Dh200, the Arabic language Emarat Alyoum newspaper said, citing a ministry source.

Fees required for the other card categories have also been cut to Dh200 from Dh500-1,500, the paper said.

As for fees required for issuing licences for labour recruitment offices, the ministry decided to maintain new licence fees at Dh10,000 and renewal of licence at Dh5,000, the report said.

“The ministry took this decision following repeated complaints by applicants about the high fees required for the replacement of their lost or damaged labour cards,” the paper quoted the source as saying.
