RIYADH — Minister of Justice and Chairman of the Supreme Judicial Council Sheikh Walid Al-Samaani has revoked the regulation to stop e-government services to those convicted of insolvency cases.

Al-Samaani also approved amending article 83/2 of the law to make the mandatory detention of the convict if the amount of debt involved is SR1 million or more and that was after a request from the plaintiff in case of his failure to clear the debts within period of three months or found that the convict has sufficient funds to settle the debt, provided that he has not filed for insolvency. In such situations, the convict may not be released except with the consent of the plaintiff or after an appeals court verdict.

The minister of justice approved the addition of a new article to the regulation No. 83/3, which stipulates that if the debtor, who has solvency, failed to settle the debts on the basis of the verdict of a judicial court within six months, he will be imprisoned upon the request of the plaintiff.

In such cases, the convict shall be interrogated within 15 days after the date of imprisonment and should release him if there is substantial evidence showing that he is serious about settling his financial liabilities.

The recent amendments also stipulated that the period of imprisonment shall not be more than three months, and the extension of sentence shall be made for a similar period after interrogating the debtor.
