Saudi independent judiciary stressed
Riyadh, Administration of justice is the permanent approach of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which will not deviate from it, as that is its main prerequisite and fundamental, Minister of Justice and Chairman of the Supreme Judicial Council Dr. Walid bin Mohammed Al-Sama'ani said.
He stressed that the judicial institution, in the Kingdom, was founded on the principles of Islamic Sharia laws and values of justice, upon which this blessed country was built, bearing in mind the application of the provisions of the Sharia, which enjoins administration of justice and realization of the right and the establishment of the values of justice.
He added that the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and HRH the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia are the principal supporters of the judicial institution, to stand in the face of anyone who attempts to harm the country or the rights of its citizens, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
He stressed that the judiciary in the Kingdom enjoys full independence to deal with the issue that has occurred on the land, that falls within the sovereignty of the Kingdom, pointing out that the issue will take its regular course, in the Kingdom, and will reach the judiciary, after the completion of the prosecution requirements.
Dr. Al-Sama'ani explained that the directives and decisions ordered by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, in the wake of the sad and tragic event that took the life of Jamal Khashoggi, are a continuation of the state's approach, pointing out that "We, as Saudi citizens, are proud and show pride of our guardians, who have spared no effort, in caring for the homeland and the citizens of this blessed country.
The minister said that the Kingdom is steadfast in its justice and will not be destabilized by any aggressive behaviour, practiced by others via reckless means of media and lack of professionalism or credibility, concluding that accountability of any violator is not a sentence to be uttered, but an enacted truth and an applicable reality, as adopted by the Kingdom as many testimonials stand as witnesses for that end.
