Criminal Liability of Directors under UAE Law

Check out our latest insight of LexisNexis, authored by our Senior Associate, Rajiv Suri,  which elaborates on the criminal liability of Directors under UAE law. Criminal liability of directors under most of the texts of law do not necessarily apply on directors by virtue of their titles but rather on the basis of the abuse of powers granted to them. Therefore, most of the texts imposing a criminal penalty of an officer or director provides for a waiver in case such officer or director was not part of any such abuse or the decision-making leading to the breach or objected to it or abstained from supporting it.
