Dubai ruler dissolves Dubai World financial disputes tribunal

05/20/2022 | 04:06am EDT

DUBAI, May 20 (Reuters) - Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum said on Friday he had issued a decree dissolving a tribunal hearing disputes related to Dubai World, the state conglomerate that was at the center of Dubai's debt crisis more than a decade ago.

Dubai World, which restructured $23.5 billion in debt after the global financial crisis, said in June 2020 it had made a final payment to creditors of $8.2 billion.

Sheik Mohammed, who is also Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, said in a statement on his website the tribunal would continue to review pending cases and claims until Dec. 13.

All future cases as well as those outstanding after Dec. 13 would be handled by specalised courts, the statement said. (Writing by Alexander Cornwell; Editing by Edmund Blair)
