4th meeting of GCC Public Prosecutors, Attorneys General kicks off.

Acting Attorney-General Dharar Al-Asousi confirmed

here on Monday that the legal judicial cooperation between the countries of

the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) is full of many achievements in the field

of criminal justice, despite its brief duration. This came in a speech by Al-Asousi during the inauguration of the two-day

fourth meeting of the GCC public prosecutors, attorneys General and

Prosecution Chiefs. Al-Asousi said that the meeting is the fruit of the establishment of the

Gulf Cooperation Council and aims to achieve coordination, integration and

interdependence among member states, leading to their unity and for the

development of similar regulations in various fields, including legislative,

administrative and judicial. He explained that the crime is a phenomenon that has dogged humanity for so

long, while organized crime has become a global phenomenon due to the physical

and technical progress which has enabled it to develop, stressing that the

response requires international and collective efforts. He pointed out that the cooperation and joint work between the justice and

law agencies as well as coordination between the competent services in all

countries is imperative to overcome the phenomenon of crime and to prevent its

occurrence. Al-Asousi praised the efforts made in previous meetings in Riyadh, Doha and

Muscat and the role of States that have embraced those meetings, in addition

to the efforts of the Secretariat of the Gulf Cooperation Council represented

by sector of Legal Affairs. For his part, Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council Abdul

Rahman al-Attiyah said approval by the Ministerial Council of Ministers of

Justice in its 114th session of the rules of joint cooperation between the

prosecutors, investigative bodies and the public prosecution "is the most

prominent evidence of the consolidation of the principles of cooperation among

the GCC member states according to regulated mechanisms and accurate

platforms". Al-Attiyah pointed, in a speech delivered on his behalf by the general

manager of Legal Affairs of the GCC Secretariat Hamad Al-Marri, to the role

assigned to the Public Prosecutions and bodies of the investigation and

prosecution as a "one of those bodies that work on the maintenance of rights

and the fight against crime in our societies"
