Saudi Attorney General Sheikh Saud al-Mojeb issued directives to the head of the Public Prosecution Branch in the Mecca region and the head of the Department of Jeddah province and all branches and departments in all parts of the Kingdom that the Public Prosecution should be fully ready to proceed with all matters related to any cases associated with the recent flash flooding in Jeddah.

Mojeb underlined that all officials should carry out their duty “to the fullest extent with no nepotism, and that they have the power to arrest, investigate and prosecute”, pointing out that the work of the Public Prosecution within the framework of its judicial characterization according to its system “represents an important pillar of the justice system in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia”.

The attorney general pointed out that branches of Saudi’s public prosecution “should work closely with his excellency to take note of the results of its work in this regard, stressing that the Public Prosecution is one of the pillars of independent judicial security, which enjoys the great support and continuous follow-up by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, and the Crown Prince, may Allah protect them,” according to a statement released.
