This was informed in a statement issued by Sheikh Ali bin Nasir al Mahrooqi, its general secretary.

The sessions will discuss reports by a number of permanent committees of the council as well as the draft amendments to provisions of the Traffic Law, referred by the Council of Ministers in light of the report submitted by the legislative and legal committee.

The meetings will also look into the report submitted by the education and research, and water and food security committees.

The draft of the Information Circulation Law submitted by the media and culture committee will also be discussed.

The council will conduct a session in which the Ministers of Health, Sports Affairs and Higher Education will reply to written questions from the council members on various issues.

Meanwhile, the legislative and legal committee of the Shura Council held the 20th meeting of the third annual sitting of the seventh period on Monday under the chairmanship of Said bin Ghanim al Miqbali.

The committee approved its report on the draft amending some provisions of the Traffic Law, referred by the Council of Ministers, which took into consideration the nature of traffic crimes and their causes.

 

The report will be submitted and discussed next week. The committee hosted a number of experts in the field and discussed the laws and new amendments to some of its clauses.

A statement issued by Miqbali highlighted some of the issues discussed by experts at the committee.

These included driving licences for expatriates, imposing heftier penalties for repeated traffic violations and making parking  vehicles wrongly a criminal offence.

Experts stressed on heftier penalties for driving under the influence of psychotropic substances and imposing fines for vehicle modifications that compromise on safety. The committee reviewed the opinion of the consultancy committee.

Also, the commission at the Shura Council investigating the Salalah beach resort and the Medical City projects in the governorate of Dhofar held its third meeting under the chair of Khalid bin Ahmed al Saadi, head of the committee and in the presence of members of the committee and the General Secretary.
