• The Supreme Judiciary Council Launches an e-encyclopedia of the Decennial Compendium of the Rulings of the Court of Cassation under Criminal and Civil Law from 1 January 2005 until 31 December 2014

    10 January 2017

    Within the framework of the efforts of the Supreme Judiciary Council to achieve prompt justice and facilitate legal work and research of judges and all parties interested in judicial and legal work, the decennial compendium of legal rules, decided by the Court of Cassation under criminal and civil law, was launched for the period from 1 January 2005 to 31 December 2014 on the website of the Supreme Judiciary Council. The compendium contains the rules established by the Court of Cassation within ten years after their classification. They were posted on the website in one section in alphabetical order. The principles of the Court of Cassation in criminal law amounted to more than 9,000 legal bases. The civil compendium also contained the substantive rules related to the civil aspect, and procedural rules for pleadings and evidence, and a specialised section to include the principles of administrative disputes, family, tenancy, employment and commercial law. The Supreme Judiciary Council allows access to the website to benefit from the provisions of Court of Cassation and serve as an aid to rights and justice.

    It is noteworthy that the classification of the provisions and preparation of the e-version and its amendments and making the same available for everyone came out of the efforts exerted by  Dr Thaqeel Sayer Al Shammari, President of the Technical Office, and members of Technical Office of the Court of Cassation, Judge Mohamed Helali, Chairperson of the Standing Committee of the Courts' Website and members of the Committee.
