RPP 5-5-41

The DFSA may exercise its right to apply for a search warrant, rather than seeking compliance with its requirement through some other process (such as an injunction), only where it is satisfied that:

(a) the preconditions in Article 84(2) for the issue of a warrant are met;
(b) the DFSA considers it necessary or desirable to seek the assistance of the Dubai Police;
(c) there does not appear to be a legitimate basis for non-compliance; and
(d) in the absence of the execution of a search warrant, the information or documents sought may be removed or destroyed or otherwise not made available.
