The said inspectors were sworn in as judicial officers before Counsellor Ali Mohammed Alblooshi, Attorney-General of Abu Dhabi, at the headquarters of the Judicial Department.
After the swearing-in, the Attorney-General delivered a speech to the judicial officers, in which he stressed the importance of complying with the proper application of legal systems when performing their duties.

The training will prepare inspectors, who are knowledgeable in all aspects of judicial and administrative control, to ensure the proper application of the law, enshrine the principles and foundations of control and audit in the service sectors, and an emphasis on practical training based on the files and procedures of the Public Prosecution and criminal courts.
