RIYADH — Saudi Arabia’s laws protect the legitimate rights of citizens and expatriates alike, including the right to practice their faith freely in their places of residence, the Human Rights Commission council stressed on Wednesday.

The assertion was made during a virtual meeting chaired by the Chairman of the Human Rights Commission Dr. Awwad Al-Awwad. During the session, the HRC council highlighted the Kingdom’s efforts in protecting and promoting human rights.

These developments, noted the council, are driven by a strong political will that has played a part in moving the Kingdom, under the leadership of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman and Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman, from commitments to practices in the area of promoting and protecting human rights.

The council discussed a number of agenda items, including the HRC’s annual 1440-1441 annual report.
