The Harb tribe in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf announced that Mr. Ibrahim Al-Jadaan Al-Faridi Al-Harbi has been awarded a master’s degree in forensic sciences with first-class honors from King’s College London, UK.
King’s College London is one of the most prestigious colleges in the University of London, with about 19,700 students, of whom about 6,200 are postgraduate students.
Professor Ibrahim Al-Harbi was honored by the British University of Kings College and was given the first honors degree in a memorable ceremony.
Ibrahim Al-Harbi is considered the first Saudi man to obtain this rank in the field of forensic sciences.
Israa Jamil was the first Saudi woman to obtain a doctorate in forensic sciences, but she did not receive her first honors degree.
Forensic medicine is one of the medical specialties, dealing with criminal and legal cases. It investigates deaths and injuries that occur under mysterious, unknown, and abnormal circumstances.
It involves researching and explaining how death or illness occurred, the unclear motives and reasons behind the crime, and whether these factors are external or internal in nature.
Forensic medicine includes the application of scientific and medical procedures to ambiguous legal problems and issues, linking medical findings to complex legal problems.
In many countries, it is considered part of the judicial system rather than being associated with health institutions. Therefore, the study of forensic medicine varies from one country to another.
