Royal cars under Saher

The Traffic Department has stressed that it would not back down from implementing the Saher system, adding that the rule applies to Royal Court cars.
“Nobody is above the law. We have received a statement from Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah’s court stating actual users of its cars to apply Saher penalties to traffic violators,” Okaz quoted a department official as saying.
The official disclosed plans to establish Saher cameras in more cities and streets and enhance the system’s capability to monitor violations. “We’ll also solve the issue of charging the highest fee shortly,” he added.
The fines collected by the department would be deposited with the account of the SAMA. The government will pay 30 percent of the contract value to the company implementing the project after eight months.
If the company fails to set up adequate number of cameras within the specific time or violates contract terms it would not receive payment in the fourth year.
The Saher system will be fully managed by Saudis after they are provided with necessary training and given a salary of SR4,500.

Saudi FM Al-Jubeir: Qatar should pay for US troops in Syria 

  • Saudi FM: 'The (Qatari) regime would fall there in less than a week' if US withdraws its protection - in the form of military base
  • Qatar should pay for the presence of US military forces in Syria said Saudi Arabia's top diplomat

RIYADH: Qatar should pay for the presence of US military forces in Syria, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir said in a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA). 

FM Jubeir’s statement came following comments made by US President Donald Trump during a joint press conference with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macaron.

Jubeir stated that Qatar must send its military forces to Syria “before the American President cancels American protection of Qatar, which hosts a (US) military base on its lands”.

In his statement, the Saudi FM also said that if US does withdraw its protection - in the form of military base - “the (Qatari) regime would fall there in less than a week”.
