JEDDAH — Minister of Justice and Chairman of the Supreme Judiciary Council Dr. Walid Al-Samaani urged the personal status court judges to fully adhere to the text of the law and its executive regulations while pronouncing judgments on personal disputes.

He made the remarks during an audience with the heads of the personal status courts, in the presence of Deputy Minister of Justice Dr. Najm Al-Zayd here on Wednesday.

Al-Samaani emphasized that the courts in general have witnessed many developments in the past, the most important of which is the substantive and procedural development.

“The personal status cases have a different nature as they require observance of social standards, and consideration of the effects of the ruling on family members. The heads of courts must study various provisions of the law and strictly adhere to the application of its texts and provisions,” he said.

The minister appreciated the great support that the judiciary receives from Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, saying that this contributed to the judiciary’s development, especially in the field of legislation, the latest of which were the approval of Law of Evidence, Personal Status Law and Civil Transactions Law.
