Saudi society welcomes new law criminalizing sexual harassment

30/09/2017 (Arab News – KSA): JEDDAH: A new anti-harassment law has won praise from across Saudi Arabia after King Salman ordered the interior minister to criminalize sexual harassment. The government has prepared a draft anti-harassment law to be implemented in 60 days, with jail terms and flogging being considered as possible penalties. The move comes just days after a royal decree lifted the driving ban on women. The latest royal decree stated that sexual harassment posed a great threat to women and families, and was “in contradiction of Islamic principles.” The decree read: “Considering the dangers sexual harassment poses and its negative impact on the individual, the family and society along with its contradiction of Islamic principles, our customs and traditions … the ministry shall prepare a draft law to tackle sexual harassment.”..
