The Saudi Public Prosecutor, Saud Al-Mojeb, emphasized the criminal justice protection of the holy sites and their occupants during Hajj from all forms of felony or assault.
“The prosecutors increased in number and became 27. They will exercise all parliamentary jurisdictions, such as investigation, public prosecution, appealing sentences, oversight, and inspection of prisons and places of detention. They will supervise the implementation of criminal sentences, with human cadres with distinguished justice efficiency, tight institutional plans, and an integrated technical process.” Al-Mojab Said.
Al-Mojab noted the great and special care that Saudi Arabia pays to the holy sites and pilgrims since their unification by the founder King Abdulaziz until the present time, with the support and follow-up of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
He stressed that Hajj is a religious obligation for Muslims in general, in which it is prohibited to raise sectarian slogans or political parties, and that this matter requires strict criminal accountability.
The Public Prosecutor also stressed the inviolability of the felony against pilgrims in all its forms or the exploitation of religious rites or holy places, and that it is one of the issues that the Public Prosecution demands to apply the most severe penalties against those convicted in it.
