Riyadh, Muharram 14, 1439, October 04, 2017, SPA -- An official source at the Presidency of State Security said that implementing Information Crimes Law, the competent authority of the presidency monitored circulation of video clips on social networking sites inciting against public order and stirring up feelings towards issues that are still under consideration or against an interest meeting the needs of people and their requirements to obstruct it and prevent it from being used and directly and indirectly inciting to commit illegal acts. The presidency managed to identify the people behind the clips and arrested them. Their number is (22) people, one of them Qatari, and the rest of the Saudi nationality. Their motives and links are being verified.
The Presidency of the State Security, as it declares this, warns against the consequences of falling into such practices, and at the same time stresses that it will not tolerate anyone who commits such acts, and will respond firmly and resolutely to those who seek to undermine the security of the homeland and its stability.
