Okaz, 16 March 2022: Saudi Arabia’s Justice Ministry has announced the judicial costs system will be implemented from 17 March 2022.
The Implementing Regulations to the Law will specify the details of the criteria for estimating judicial costs for lawsuits and requests.
The system will improve the efficiency of the justice system and enhance the use of alternative methods of dispute resolution.
It will also help reduce malicious and fictitious lawsuits and improve preventive justice and the documentation of contracts.
The system does not apply to general penal cases, disciplinary cases and requests related to them, or cases and requests which fall within the jurisdiction of the personal status courts, except for cassation requests or re-examination requests. For full story, click here.
