Saudi Arabia gives electronic newspapers 7 days to correct their situation


The Saudi Audio-Visual Media Commission has given the electronic newspapers permission to correct their situation by renewing or issuing licenses that authorize them to practice their activities before the current date of November 24.

The authority stressed the importance of newspapers complying with what was stated in the executive regulations for electronic publishing activity so that they are not subject to penalties, stressing that it will take the necessary measures against those who did not initiate correction within the specified period.

Studies indicate that the beginning of the electronic press in Saudi Arabia was in 2001, and it has increased over the past two decades, until it reached more than 600 electronic newspapers.

The executive regulation aims to regulate the practice of electronic publishing activity, protect society from erroneous practices in it, preserve the rights and duties of employees, and preserve the rights of people to create and register any form of electronic publishing, as well as to file a lawsuit with the concerned department in the event of a complaint.

To be licensed to engage in electronic publishing activities, the applicant must be a Saudi national, of good conduct, be at least 25 years old, hold a university degree or its equivalent, and not be a government employee.

The duration of the license is one year, and the renewal is for a similar period or periods in accordance with the conditions, and that is before its end by a period of no less than three months, and the license holder is not entitled to practice the activity after the expiry of its period without renewing it.
