Dubai prisoners can now stand trial through video link

Defendants in Dubai can now stand trial via video conferencing.

It's as Dubai Police have launched a 'remote trial' initiative, which allows inmates to appear for their court hearings without leaving correctional facilities.

The smart system helps prosecutors to carry out investigations through conference calls instead of having to carry around case files.

Officials say it also reduces the overall trial process from seven to three steps.
