Abstract

This article focuses on the role of the public prosecutor in the pre-trial stage in the UAE and on their independence in particular. The Public Prosecution Service in the UAE is a judicial authority, which according to law is independent from the police, courts and executive authority, and has wide powers in respect of the criminal process. It is mainly responsible for the investigation process; it represents the State in the prosecution process, and, last but not least, it is responsible for the enforcement of the sentence. The Public Prosecution Service faces a number of issues and problems, the main ones being lack of independence, lack of impartiality, lack of supervision over judicial police officers, and a lack of judicial supervision over their decisions.
