President H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan has issued Law Number 4 for 2007 on restructuring the court of Abu Dhabi Crown Prince.

According to the law, The Crown prince's court shall be an independent corporate body and shall enjoy full legal status, as well as financial and administrative independence in all its affairs. The court shall consist of a Chairman, an under secretary and a number of dedicated departments, supported by competent staff.

The chairman, whose grade shall be equal to a department head, is to be appointed by virtue of an Emiri decree. The court is mandated by the law to develop, coordinate and manage matters related to the Crown Prince both inside and outside the emirate. It shall act as a link between the Crown Prince and citizens.

The law outlines the court's task in developing strategies of the court and advising the Crown Prince, as well as drawing and implementing the media policies of the emirate both locally and abroad.

The court shall also be responsible for protocol matters in coordination with relevant authorities, including arrangements for hosting foreign dignitaries on visits to the emirate and arranging for the Crown Prince's overseas trips.

The court may, in coordination with the concerned authorities, also review issues, complains and needs of citizens, propose appropriate solutions and submit them to the Crown Prince.

The law provides for the court's chairman to be the representative of the court. The chairman may, on the advice of the Crown Prince, officially represent the court in events, celebrations, visits and meetings with local and international officials.

The law defines the Under Secretary as the Chief Executive of the court who may propose the court's public policy and oversee its implementation after its approval in line with the directives and instructions of the Crown prince.

The Court's Director shall be in charge of the court's day-today business and coordination with other government entities on joint matters.

The law stipulates that the court's staff shall be subject to the provisions of the laws and regulations of the civil services and pensions currently observed in the emirate, unless a context indicates otherwise. The court's financial resources shall consist of the budget approved by the Chairman of the Executive Council and other amounts allocated by the Crown Prince. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
