(MENAFN - Arab News) The ministry of justice says it is losing staff at 320 courts across the country because of a lack of financial incentives including allowances for officials.

the ministry also has a shortage of senior staff positions it stated in its 2013/2014 annual report released recently.

it said that many of its projects have either not been approved or delayed because the ministry of finance has yet to clear its budget.

it has also not been allocated land to build several court buildings across the country particularly in big cities because its plans have not been endorsed.

there has been particular problems in asir and baha because of the difficulties posed by the topograpy. this has hampered the implementation of the king abdullah project for the development of the judicial system. land needs to be identified for this purpose which requires huge funding it said in the report.



the ministry also complained that inefficient contractors have delayed several projects.

in its report the ministry said that many assistant judges have resigned from their jobs because their pay is not commensurate with their workload. they also resent not being paid allowances.

'the clerks at the investigation and public prosecution bureau already receive this type of allowance. so why are assistant judges denied this entitlement when they do similar jobs at courts?" asked the report.
