Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister, has issued Law No. (6) of 2022 affiliating Dubai Media Incorporated (DMI) to Dubai Media Council and endorsing its objectives, tasks, and organisational structure.

DMI was established pursuant to Law No. (8) of 2003 as a public entity with legal personality and authority required to achieve its objectives. 

Sheikh Mohammed also issued Decree No. (11) of 2022 appointing Sheikh Hasher bin Maktoum bin Juma Al Maktoum as Chairman of DMI. Mohammed Sulaiman Al Mulla was appointed as CEO of DMI.

The Law determines DMI’s tasks, responsibilities, and organisational structure. The Law also obliges all government and media entities operating in Dubai to collaborate with it to enable it to conduct its tasks.

Law No. (6) of 2022 replaces Law No. (8) of 2003 pertaining to the establishment of DMI. Decision No. (40) of 2021 related to the formation of the Steering Committee of DMI is annulled, in addition to any other legislation that may contradict this Law.
