RIYADH: The Saudi Attorney General Sheikh Saud bin Abdullah Al-Mujib has praised the role of the public prosecution agencies in combating cross-border crimes.
He made these remarks during his speech at the Conference on the Role of Public Prosecution and Public Prosecution Agencies in Combating Crime, in Cairo.
The conference was organized to advance international cooperation in combating cross-border crimes.
He shed light on judicial development in the Kingdom, which is a result of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 reform plans that have supported judicial efficiency and improved the governance of Saudi laws and regulations.
In July, Al-Mujib said that Saudi Arabia’s Bureau of Investigation and Public Prosecution will not tolerate trafficking in persons and will take legal measures against the perpetrators of such crimes.
He said that the victims of such crimes would receive special attention from the competent care authorities.
His statement was made in response to World Day Against Trafficking.
“The Saudi state, since its inception, has been protecting rights and freedoms from all forms of crime and exploitation,” he said.
