Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, on Monday directed the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department to halt all rental property eviction cases currently underway.

Executive procedures like imprisonment, blocking of bank accounts, seizure of vehicles, stocks and assets have also been halted for a period of two months as the coronavirus continues to impact day-to-day life in the UAE.

The decision exempts cases related to alimony and labour disputes, state news agency WAM reported.

It added that the move is in line with the UAE government's keenness to support members of society and reduce their burdens during the current situation.

As of Monday, the UAE has reported a total of 153 infections, with two fatalities.
