Saudi newspapers highlighted in their editorials today a number of issues at local, regional and international arenas.
Al-Riyadh newspaper reported in its editorial that HRH Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman announcement about the four new laws to reform the Kingdom’s judicial institutions represents a new wave of reforms that will contribute to protecting rights.
HRH the Crown Prince said that “The absence of applicable legislations has led to discrepancies in decisions and a lack of clarity in the principles governing facts and practices. This resulted in prolonged litigation not based on legal texts. In addition, the absence of a clear legal framework for the private and business sectors has led to ambiguity with respect to obligations”.
The Personal Status Law, the Civil Transactions Law, the Penal Code for Discretionary Sentences, and the Law of Evidence are meant to preserve rights, bolster the principles of justice, enforce transparency, protect human rights and achieve comprehensive and sustainable development, in a manner to reinforce the Kingdom’s global competitiveness, the newspaper added.
The newspaper further added that these laws will also contribute to the ability to predict court decisions, increase the level of integrity and efficiency of judicial institutions, and increase the reliability of procedures and oversight mechanisms as cornerstones in achieving the principles of justice.
The paper concluded that HRH the Crown Prince always moves forward with the support of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, to present new achievements.
Al-Bilad newspaper said in its editorial that the Iranian terrorism continues to violate international laws, treaties and agreement, by threatening the security and stability of the region, as it continues to interfere in the internal affairs of Arab countries, along with using its armed militias to implement its malicious agenda.
The Tehran regime proves that it does not care about international laws and does not respect treaties, which requires an end to this reckless behavior, the newspaper said.
The practices of the Iranian regime’s arms, represented by the Houthi militia that threaten the security, safety and stability of Yemen and its continued attacks against Saudi Arabia with ballistic missiles and drones, prove that the Tehran regime does not want peace or stability in the region, the newspaper concluded.
Al-Eqtisadiah newspaper reported in its editorial that the Kingdom’ oil policy decisions are based on its national interests. Saudi Arabia's policy in this regard is also steady and flexible, focused on preserving the stability of the oil market in all circumstances.
In this regard, the Oxford Institute said in its recent study, that the Kingdom's recent decision to cut production was not political, but rather based on current and future reading of market developments, especially with the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic. This step also offers Saudi Arabia greater flexibility in its future choices.
Saudi Arabia’s decision to cut production is in accordance with the OPEC+ agreement and to cut an additional 1 million barrels per day in February and March contributed to pushing the prices in the oil market in a balanced manner.
