Sheikh Saud bin Abdullah Al-Muajab

:: Saudi Arabia’s Public Prosecutor, Sheikh Saud bin Abdullah Al-Muajab, revealed that the Kingdom has established a permanent committee to coordinate with other government authorities to enhance international judicial cooperation and present international advice.

This revelation came in a speech Al-Muajab delivered during the 22nd annual conference and the general meeting of the International Association of Prosecutors (IAP) in Beijing. He explained that the formation of this committee in Saudi Arabia is in line with requirements of international agreements, such as the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime, and the UN Convention against Corruption.

Al-Muajab noted that the Kingdom extradited 91 wanted suspects of different nationalities to countries which have mutual, regional or international agreements with the Kingdom. He also said that the Kingdom, in line with reciprocity and international courtesy, extradited 14 other suspects wanted for terrorism, murder and other crimes in 2015-2016 to countries which do not have judicial agreements with the Kingdom.

Regarding judicial cooperation with the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, Al-Muajab stressed that these countries believe in the importance of developing judicial cooperation to ensure cooperation and results in the quickest time possible.
