Holy sites to have courts near police stations
Minister of Interior and head of the Supreme Haj Council Prince Mohammed bin Naif has approved the establishment of independent circuit courts next to police stations at the holy sites, starting from the next pilgrimage season. The courts are expected to accelerate and facilitate judicial proceedings.
The proposal was initially submitted by Mubsher Al-Ghurman, member of the Supreme Judicial Council and supervisor of the judicial circuits, after an inspection of the headquarters of the Supreme Council on the second day of Eid.
Al-Ghurman also inspected the judicial services participating in the Haj in Mina, which consists of three judges and 18 employees, in order to define the needs of judges and listen to issues they wish to raise to the minister for a resolution.
He also visited the Fourth Circuit in Almaasim, where the chairman of the General Court in Makkah and the supervisor of these judicial circuits, Mansour Al-Rashed, is based. During the visit, the most prominent issues, observations and needs were discussed, especially comments regarding the location of these circuits, modifications and equipment needed for next year.
The recommendations will be presented to the minister of justice for review.
