Saudi Arabia to rein in moral police following 'horrific' death of man during chase
Dubai, July 25 (ANI): Saudi Arabia will amend rules governing the religious police (mutawa) after the 'horrific' death of a Saudi man and injuries to his family members after their car was chased by them earlier this month.
"A set of procedures to govern the country's Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice Commission's chasing of people will soon be released," Gulf News quoted the head of the commission, Abdul Latif Al Shaikh, as saying.
The statement came days after the incident "shocked the Saudi public".
Four members of the religious police had been arrested for allegedly causing a situation that led to the death of Abdul Rahman Al Gamdi and left his wife and two children injured.
The four will be charged with "abusing power, for chasing a man with his family while ignoring instructions given to members of the committee completely banning chases". (ANI)
