RIYADH: Since its launch on Ramadan 14, Furijat service settled 1,110 bills worth SR15.15 million ($4 million) on behalf of people convicted in non-criminal financial cases.
A media spokesman for the General Directorate for Prisons said the initiative aims to provide Saudi citizens and residents with a simple and safe medium to donate money to people convicted in non-criminal financial cases, and eligible to benefit from governmental support programs, to help them pay their debt to society.
Donors can make payments by clicking on the application icon available on the website of the General Directorate for Prisons, then choosing the category of the beneficiary to donate to.
When relevant authorities confirm the receipt of the donated amount, the beneficiary, his debt repaid, is released while his civil record is cleared.
In collaboration with the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development, the Saudi Authority for Data and Artificial Intelligence, and the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority, Furijat can be accessed via the Absher electronic platform.
The Islamic Affairs Ministry has also joined hands to promote this campaign by posting videos and audio clips showing scholars, preachers, and sheikhs urging people to make donations to help others.
