Manama: Attorney General Dr. Ali bin Fadhel Al Buainin participated today in the Arab Public Prosecutors Association meeting which convened today via the Visual Communication Technology (VCT).
The meeting shed light on a number of issues, including mainly the procedures taken by the Public Prosecutions to handle the coronavirus pandemic and exchange expertise in this respect.
The Attorney General reviewed the measures taken by the Public Prosecution in the Kingdom of Bahrain in this regard, including receiving applications via the Public Prosecution’s website and contact lines on the WhatsApp application, which led to a significant decrease in the number of visitors to the prosecution’s headquarters. He also pointed out other preventative measures that are consistent with the health procedures adopted by Bahrain and the approach of the Public Prosecution in its investigation with violators of the law who do not comply with the quarantine procedures imposed on them.
The Attorney Generals agreed that the association continue assuming its duties despite the current circumstances undergone by the world. They also agreed to set up a website for the association and secure contact channels on appropriate social media websites. They also approved holding a specialised remote workshop on the role of the public prosecutions in fighting terrorist crimes and funding terrorism and international cooperation in this respect.
