Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 17 June 2010: DIFC Courts, Dubai International Financial Centre’s (DIFC) independent, common law judicial system yesterday held an official ceremony in which the traditional scroll of office, quoting H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, was presented to the new Chief Justice, Michael Hwang SC.
