RIYADH — The Kingdom's counter-terrorism law was amended on Saturday allowing Public Prosecution to release detainees temporarily.

This is in line with the Council of Ministers' decision published in Umm Al-Qura, the official gazette, on Friday. The decision pertains to the amendment and deletion of some articles in the law.

According to a royal decree, Article 12 of the law has been amended through which the Public Prosecution has been empowered to temporary release any detainee involved in any of the crimes mentioned in the regulation, provided it does not harm the investigations or there are fears the detainee might go absconding.

In addition, Article 9 of the executive bylaw has been deleted. Specifically, this means the security conditions mentioned in Article 12 have been done away with.
