Riyadh, Saudi newspapers highlighted in their editorials today a number of issues at local, regional and international arenas.
Al-Bilad newspaper reported in its editorial that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is witnessing major qualitative developmental leaps in its legislation and justice systems that promote rights in various fields and achieve sustainable development.
In this regard, the Cabinet’s approval of the Regulation of Evidence came as the first of four bylaws announced earlier by HRH the Crown Prince which included civil status draft bylaw, civil transactions draft bylaw, and the criminal draft bylaw on discretionary penalties, the paper said.
Such regulation establishes principles based on fixed references in judicial work, along with basic pillars in achieving transparency and justice, the paper added.
Meeting the requirements of life was taken into consideration under the provisions of the Islamic Sharia and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s international commitments, the paper further added.
These major achievements reinforce the message of justice to protect society, individuals, rights and property and upgrade the level of integrity and the efficiency of the performance of justice agencies, in addition to increasing the reliability of procedures and oversight mechanisms to achieve the principles of justice that enjoy all the support of the wise leadership, the paper concluded.
