Know your Rights: 5 laws that expats should know.

1. The consumption of illegal drugs in the UAE is a criminal offence, punishable by possible imprisonment or deportation. Drugs that are legal in your home country may not necessarily be legal in the UAE, this could include drugs that you have been prescribed for medical reasons in your home country. Consult the following list of banned substances before consuming any drugs within the UAE.

2. The import of illegal drugs in to the UAE is a criminal offence. Consult the following list of banned substances before purchasing medication from your home country and bringing it into the UAE. This includes whilst transiting through Dubai airport. If you have obtained a prescription for medication from your home country, it is recommended to carry a translated and attested copy of the prescription with you.

3. Take particular care when returning from holiday if you may have come in to contact with anyone who has taken an illegal drug and may have passed even the smallest quantity on to you. Possession of illegal drugs, even for example a speck on a shoe, may be a criminal offence.

4. Some medications are illegal in the UAE if possessed without a prescription from a Doctor. These include some sleeping pills, antidepressants and pain killers. Check with your Doctor whether a prescription is required before taking these types of medicines.

5. We have come across a number of cases in which expatriate women’s drinks have been spiked with illegal substances against their knowledge. Such action could result in the woman having committed a criminal offence (by having an illegal substance in her system). Never accept a drink from someone you do not know, and be vigilant in busy bars and nightclubs.

Author: Experienced lawyer Hassan Elhais, along with his team of prominent lawyers across the UAE, has made a name for himself as a renowned specialist in the fields of civil law, construction law, banking law, criminal law, family law, inheritance law and arbitration.

A major wave of economic reforms was initiated in India in the year 1991. A thrust towards economic liberalization162 led to a new era in Indian corporate governance. The year 1992 witnessed the establishment of SEBI as the Indian securities markets regulator. SEBI rapidly began ushering in securities market reforms that gradually led to corporate governance reforms as well. Curiously, the first corporate governance initiative was sponsored by industry. In 1998, a National Task force constituted by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) recommended a code for “Desirable Corporate Governance,” which was voluntarily adopted by a few companies. Thereafter, a committee chaired by Mr. Kumar Mangalam Birla submitted a report to SEBI “to promote and raise the standard of Corporate Governance in respect of listed companies.” Based on the recommendations of the Kumar Mangalam Birla committee the Equity Listing Agreement that was applicable to all listed companies of a certain size. India’s corporate governance norms therefore came to be governed through a clause in the listing agreement popularly referred to as “Clause 49.” Although both the CII Code as well as the Kumar Mangalam Birla Committee Report expressly cautioned against mechanically importing forms of corporate governance from the developed world, several concepts introduced by them were indeed those that emerged in countries such as the U.S. and the U.K. These include the concepts such as an independent board and audit committee. Now-a-days the role of the independent directors is drawing wide attention especially in the context of public companies. This class of directors is actually elected directors who are not executive directors and who not participate in day-tot-day activities of the company. The Kumarmangalam Birla Committee has defined an independent director as an entity who does not have a “material pecuniary relationship or transactions with the company, its promoter, its managements or its subsidiaries, which in judgment of the Board, may effect the independence of the judgment”. Three years later the Naresh Chandra committee gave governance more thought. Finally, in 2004 the Narayanmurthy committee affected changes to clause 49 of the listing agreement.
