NSHR denies reports UK to train Saudi cybercrime fighters

TABUK: Mefleh Al-Qahtani, president of the National Society for Human Rights, denied recent reports that British police are planning to train Saudis on how to track economic crimes.
Al-Qahtani said the Kingdom has its own anti-information technology crime laws, and that this news about fears of using such efforts to reach certain individuals and torture them only serves private motives on the part of Western media.
Al-Qahtani said these rumors have no basis, and the situation in the Kingdom is governed by laws and regulations that are subject to procedures. He added that the Kingdom’s constitution is the Islamic Shariah, which means that such reports by the Western media are released with private motives and interests.
He said the Kingdom is committed to the implementation of human rights laws and regulations, and the NSHR hadn’t come across any methodical violation of human rights throughout its 12-year existence. He added that individual cases have been investigated, regulatory procedures taken and violators punished. If there is cooperation or training for certain people it is done according to the regulations and in a matter that achieves public interest.
Al-Qahtani said there is an anti-crime law with its procedures and mechanisms, and those who violate this law are subjected to judicial procedures. If anyone is proved to have violated this law he will be referred to court and dealt with according to the current law.
