Riyadh, Dec 1, 2020, SPA -- Under the chairmanship of its Speaker Sheikh Dr. Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Ibrahim Al Al-Sheikh, the Shura Council virtually held (via visual communication) its 5th ordinary session, among the workings of the 1st year of its 8th convocation.
During the session, Shura approved a decision on expanding the role of the Supreme Judicial Council, in disseminating and diffusion of legal-wise culture and raising the awareness of the public, in regard of judicial and litigation affairs.
The rationale is to mitigate the flow of lawsuits and to contribute to speeding up the process of resolving them.
Then, the Shura moved to review and discuss several reports submitted by various committees, especially one from Hajj, Housing and Services Committee on the annual report relating to Madinah Region development projects, including the expansion of the Prophet Mosque and Madinah Vision.
