Ghariyan, 17 March 2015:
Members of the Shoura Council of Ghariyan have agreed to allow the local judiciary to . . .[restrict]settle all cases involving “social outlaws”.
The decision has come after a meeting of the Shoura Council on Saturday in Bani Khalifa to discuss the best way to deal with crime and local squabbles within Ghariyan.
Another key problems that came up at the meeting were civil disputes over land in the Abu Shaybah farming region. The quarrel has been between the indigenous land owners and those who were “given” the farms under the former regime.
Speaking of the council’s intention to turn to the courts, its president Salah Zoubik praised the move, saying it would “soothe the soul” and be a big help in resolving problems within the region. [/restrict]
