(May 02, 2008) The National Association for Human Rights in Saudi Arabia published a booklet in Arabic titled Know Your Rights, to inform people of their rights guaranteed under the Criminal Procedure Law issued by a royal decree on August 22, 2006. The booklet refers to 39 legal rights that an accused has in cases of arrest, investigation, inspection, and trial. An official of the Association told ASHARQ ALAWSAT that versions of the booklet will be published in other languages to benefit foreigners working in Saudi Arabia.
