"Fifth: in this context, we would like to stress that the judicial rules in this country, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, are based on what is stated in Quran and the Prophet's tradition. Also, the judicial rule in any case is totally based on what is proven to judges, the available evidence, as well as hearing the concerned parties, and what is recorded of details, investigations, and confessions.
"Sixth: Passing judgment on a matter is part of its preconception, and we regret what some media have circulated on the role of the woman in the case, and the dissemination of false information and misplaced defense. Such wrong activity has led to doubting the course of the case although most the information are false and in general inaccurate because these information are taken from persons who have nothing to do with jurisprudence and have no knowledge of the details of the case. That is why the Ministry of Justice has felt compelled, in view of what has been published, to clarify in details the role of the woman and that of her companion.
