Prisoners and Detainees

Prisoner Services System

The initiative aims to develop the judicial services provided to prisoners through a technical, human and procedural operational model allowing prisoners to easily obtain judicial, notarial and enforcement services; and through a system that provides electronic solutions and permanent on-site staff enabling inmates to obtain services such as remote trials and videoconferencing. The initiative also works to speed up procedures by issuing a procedural guide to protect detainee rights under the royal order no. 12298 03/03/1442 from the moment of arrest to the enforcement of judgment. The initiative will find solutions for issues including the prisoner's inability to obtain judicial services before and after hearings and after the issuance of judgments, and the inadequacy of integrated solutions for release procedures under objective and approved criteria.


Targeted segments

Prisoners, prison security staff and relevant departments
