Counselor Yousef Saeed Al Abri, Undersecretary of the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD), conducted a field inspection visit to the penal and correctional institutions in Abu Dhabi.

The agenda included topics such as work mechanisms, strategic directions, and plans to enhance performance and improve quality to achieve integration in the service system in line with the Judicial Department's strategic plan's priorities.
