The phenomenon of organised crime and terrorism must be addressed through innovative mechanisms, dialogue, and convergence among the public representatives at the level of Arab countries, said General Prosecutor Nabil Sadek on Wednesday.
His statements came during the first meeting of Arab General Prosecutors held in Cairo in attendance of representatives from Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Kuwait, Bahrain, Palestine.
Sadek explained in his opening speech that rapid pace in the development of terrorist groups requires developing ways and mechanisms to confront the crime, and that the most important ways to address these crimes is drying up the sources of support and money used in the purchase of explosives and other illegal activities which are a threat to the security and safety of citizens.
He pointed out that it is not easy for a single country to confront the crimes of terrorism and exchange analyses of the data provided, explaining that the role of Arab deputies are a legal forum to fight organised crime.
Sadek called on Arab legislators to present a plan to prevent crime and enhance cooperation, stressing the depth of historical relations and seeking to raise the efficiency of the public prosecution in the Arab state to confront the legal phenomena of the criminal protection of human rights.
Moreover, the Saudi Attorney General Sheikh Saud bin Abdullah, said that the promotion of justice and the support of the oppressed is in accordance with the legal and legislative provisions, and that the Saudi Public Prosecution is striving to confront terrorism and eliminate the spread of chaos through the promotion of legal cooperation and mutual benefit between countries.
He also said that the meetings of the general prosecutor will work toward rapprochement and fraternity among Arab countries and to open areas of cooperation in judicial and legal systems.
He added that relations between Saudi Arabia and its Arab brothers are strong on all levels, as King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz was keen to promote and develop these relations between Arab countries to eliminate crime.
