Court sessions to go digital in Saudi


Riyadh: A project to document court sessions using audio-visual technologies will be launched soon.

The plan aims at making court sittings public and safeguarding the rights of the judge and the parties involved in the lawsuit.

Minister of Justice and President of the Supreme Judicial Council Shaikh Walid Al-Samaani  announced that scheme would be implemented this year.

Under the same project, the minutes of court sessions will be made available online and digital, in addition to implementing the distant translation scheme.

This will be within the framework of clear governance aimed at improving the performance sought by all judicial bodies, he said.

Al-Samaani explained that the audio-visual documentation of the court sessions is intended to convert all the court proceedings to digital versions that can be reviewed by the clients and the judge so as to reduce complaints in this realm, in addition to preserving the right of the judge and the litigants.

The audio-visual documentation of court sessions will also be made available to the Supreme Judiciary Council for its reference, he added
