Commenting on this, Rashid Ahmed Bin Al Sheikh, Chief of the Sharjah Emiri Court and Head of the Committee, confirmed that the committee has approved, within the 21st batch, the payment of the debts of people from various categories, amounting to Dhs51.596 million.
Al Sheikh added that so far, 1,707 citizens have benefited from the Committee's debt repayment process, with a total of Dhs838,382,153 in debts being processed and settled.
The gesture reflects the Sharjah Ruler’s keenness to promote locally-produced literature within the UAE’s book industry by supporting Emirati writers and intellectuals, and ultimately enhancing their presence in libraries.
