The newspaper “Sabq” quoted early Monday, unnamed sources, as saying that the Supreme Judicial Council issued a decision to cease the hand of the two judges who issued two judgments in the “Al-Mu`assil and Al-Halaq” cases, and refer them to investigation, to take appropriate measures against them, and to consider their sufficiency To continue with the judicial work.
The newspaper added that the council’s decision came after “following up and monitoring the judicial inspection of such contravening judgments that the necessary measures are taken regarding, because the judicial institution handles the violating judgments through the higher court, the judicial inspection, and the conclusion of final rulings.”
The newspaper stated that the two cases that caused the suspension of the two judges from work are being reviewed, because the commercial activity in them is legally authorized, and “the role of the judiciary is to implement the regulations, and therefore the court must decide on the matter in a way that preserves rights.”
The newspaper described the two judgments issued in the “Al-Ma`sil and Al-Halaq” cases as “exceptional and rare rulings,” and said that the judicial work is an institutional act that eliminates the opinion of the individual in the direction of the institutional system that is based on legislation, principles and decisions, and what the judicial work has settled on.

While the Maasil case was revealed a few days ago, when a Saudi citizen submitted his case to the court, he asked to compel another non-Saudi man to pay him compensation for the value of the molasses that he did not deliver as previously agreed with him, according to what was reported by “Okaz” newspaper.
The newspaper clarified that the judge, in his ruling of the case, affirmed that “maassel goods are considered as forbidden money, and the general rule among scholars is that forbidden goods are not permissible to make compensation in them, because it is a forbidden object in which there is no benefit in Sharia or a resident’s money, and in everything that the street has forbidden the Muslim to possess And to benefit from it, whether it is for itself, that is, for a reason existing in the eye, such as pork and wine, or forbidden for others, that is, for an urgent reason, such as stolen money.
In his ruling, the judge also added that the defendant’s guilt was not proven in the allegations attributed to him in the plaintiff’s lawsuit of selling the molasses merchandise for his personal benefit, and the judge decided to dismiss the case and release the defendant.
