Move to release Saudi prisoners in Taif applauded

Author: ARAB NEWSID: 1537816969632752800Mon, 2018-09-24 22:22 TAIF: The Saudi Justice Minister and chairman of the Supreme Judicial Council, Walid Al-Samaan, has praised King Salman for his directive to release all prisoners in Taif who are insolvent in financial cases and not involved in criminal offenses. The directive came after a visit by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to the region. The Justice Ministry aims to study and make suggestions and initiatives that would ensure a high level of performance for the Kingdom’s judiciary. Separately, the ministry started receiving requests for the implementation of the unified housing lease in the execution courts as an executive bond through the “unified lease contract,” after linking electronically with the Ministry of Housing in July. The step will contribute to reducing the flow of cases to the general courts, authorities said, adding that the real estate owners can now apply, through the “unified lease agreement,” which is registered in the electronic rental network, directly to the executive courts and departments, through the ministry’s portal, if the tenant does not pay the value of the rent when due.

King Salman to inaugurate Saudi Arabia’s Haramain high-speed railway

Author: Shounaz MekkyID: 1537822830733147300Mon, 2018-09-24 23:59 JEDDAH: Saudi Arabia’s King Salman will inaugurate the Haramain high speed rail project on Tuesday ahead of the start of commercial operations next month. The 450 kilometer train line connects the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah with stations at Jeddah, King Abdul Aziz International Airport, and King Abdullah Economic City. Saudi Minister of Transport, Dr. Nabil bin Mohammed Al-Amoudi, expressed his gratitude to the King for his patronage of the ceremony as well as his support for national projects. Al-Amoudi said King Salman gives great importance to the transportation projects in Saudi Arabia as they represent the Kingdom’s efforts in serving citizens and visitors, specifically pilgrims. He also said the King and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman are always committed to provide the highest quality services to pilgrims, to fulfill Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, which aims to increase the number of pilgrims. This giant project has been implemented in three stages by a number of national and international companies. The project can carry 60 million passengers a year with a fleet of 35 trains containing 417 seats each. Dr. Rumaih bin Mohammed Al-Rumaih, chairman of the Public Transport Authority, said the project is the region’s first high-speed electric train. The designs of the stations of the Haramain rail were inspired by the unique Islamic architecture of the cities of Makkah and Madinah. Main category: Saudi Arabia

Author: sarah glubbID: 1537823598503222400Tue, 2018-09-25 00:08 JEDDAH: Saudi Arabia’s approach to refugees is a model of linking Islamic values and humanitarian action, a UN official said on Monday. Khaled Khalifa, the UN Refugee Agency’s Regional Representative to the GCC Countries, used the Kingdom’s 88th National Day to outline several humanitarian achievements in the country, SPA reported. Saudi Arabia has contributed more than SR1 billion ($270 million) in the last 10 years to UNHCR, Khalifa said. This year, Saudi Arabia’s total contribution to UNHCR’s programs totalled SR216 million, making the Kingdom among the top donors in the Middle East and North Africa region. Khalifa said that the King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Action (KSRelief) is one of the most important partners of UNHCR, which has provided assistance to hundreds of thousands of refugees around the world during the current year, providing basic relief materials for internally displaced people in Yemen, and emergency support for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. Also, earlier this month KSRelief has provided direct life-saving assistance to Syrian refugees suffering from kidney failure, by allowing hundreds to receive treatment in Jordan and Lebanon.

France says 'no alternative' to AU-led plan on C.Africa

France's foreign minister said an African Union-led plan was the only viable way to end fighting among rival factions in the Central African Republic, pushing back Monday against an alternative peace process steered by Russia. «There is no alternative that is either desirable or is likely to succeed,» Jean-Yves Le Drian told reporters at the United Nations. His comments came after Russia and Sudan co-hosted talks in Khartoum late last month among some of the Central African Republic's rival militias in a sign of Moscow's growing involvement in the country. The militias have been battling one another ever since the 2013 overthrow of longtime leader Francois Bozize, a Christian, by majority-Muslim militias in a coalition called the Seleka. France, the former colonial power, intervened to oust the Seleka and the UN deployed a peacekeeping mission, MINUSCA, in 2014. ...
