It has also warned guardians that preventing daughters aged over 18 from getting married is a crime for which they will be held accountable. The SHRC said it has studied the matter with a number of concerned agencies, and there are many negative effects of getting married under the age of 18. It also noted that the Child Protection Law holds parents and caregivers accountable for children’s upbringing and protecting them from abuse. Human rights activist Dr. Matouq Al-Sharif said the SHRC, in its statement, is drawing attention to practices by guardians that are contrary to international conventions, in particular the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which was ratified by the Kingdom via the commission. “Based on the Paris Principles, which was adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1993, the SHRC was granted the right to provide the (Saudi) government with advisory opinions, recommendations, proposals and reports,” Al-Sharif told Arab News. He added that the SHRC is responsible for ensuring that national legislation, regulations and practices harmonize with the international human rights conventions that the Kingdom has signed. “One of the tasks of this institution is to follow up on the implementation of such formal pacts, and make sure it is effective,” Al-Sharif said. “From some people’s point of view, Islam gives a guardian the right to wed his daughter. They claim that the Prophet Mohammed married Aisha when she was still 9 or 11, according to some narratives,” Al-Sharif said. “However, authentic senior Muslim scholars have denied that and said the prophet asked for her hand when she was at that age. They confirm that the wedding was when Aisha was no longer a child.” The human rights activist noted that the SHRC’s statement is a message to the relevant authorities to enact a law that rejects ideas that are contrary to Islam. Al-Sharif said that the commission has long sought to change the belief that under-age marriages are permissible. “It has even interfered to stop a number of marriages to minors in different parts of the country. Moreover, it has issued a medical study in cooperation with the Health Ministry. The study highlighted the health risks to minors of such marriages,” he said. According to Al-Sharif, the SHRC received a letter from the ministry stating that it had conducted a study on the issue and found serious health risks associated with such marriages. “The Health Ministry … listed a number of health risks, including osteoporosis … due to lack of calcium, anaemia, abortions, acute high blood pressure that may lead to kidney failure, pelvis and spinal deformities, and many other risks,” he said. In�a statement posted on its Twitter account, the SHRC said enacting such a law would protect children and maintain their rights. The statement added that many studies have proven that underage marriages have negative physical and psychological effects. It said local and international laws consider people under the age of 18 as children. The SHRC also issued a statement describing families preventing their adult daughters from marrying as a clear violation of human rights. The SHRC stressed that Saudi law criminalizes such actions, and that the appropriate authorities would deal with any reported cases. It added that under Shariah law, any woman experiencing such treatment could file a lawsuit. It has called on relevant authorities to help raise awareness among women about their rights, and to highlight the penalties for those who violate the law.� Main category:�Saudi ArabiaTags:�Saudi ArabiaHuman Rights Commission in Saudi Arabiahuman rightsMarriage Omanis arrested for ‘arranging’ to marry underage girls in India say were wrongly accusedHouthis marrying Yemeni underage girls by force: press http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ Saudi deputy defense minister meets ruler of Oman https://www.arabnews.com/node/1582651/saudi-arabia https://www.arabnews.com/node/1582651/saudi-arabia Mon, 11 Nov 2019 21:48:47 UTC malawi at Saudi Arabia Tue, 2019-11-12 00:37 MUSCAT: Saudi Arabia’s Deputy Defense Minister Prince Khalid bin Salman who is in Oman on an official visit met Sultan Qaboos bin Said on Monday.

Each Saudi will be entitled to one free share for every 10 shares, provided that they do not dispose of the shares for 180 days from the date of listing. The number of shares for each Saudi investor shall not exceed 100. Jamal Bennoun, a Saudi columnist who writes on economic issues, told Arab News that the Kingdom’s economy had entered a new stage. This would attract small investors and individuals as well as companies to buy shares from Aramco, especially since millions of shares will be offered by one of three mega-companies in oil and gas in the world. Bennoun believes that the real estate sector will be the most affected by the IPO since people are looking for liquidity to buy shares and thus land prices are expected to drop. This, he said, would be of benefit to people wanting to buy land or units at less than market price. Olfat Kabbani, a Saudi businesswomen investing in the downstream sector, and also the deputy head of the industrial committee at Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said that the Aramco IPO is the largest economic event in the world now and described it as an important step in the economic reform led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. As an investor in the local market, she believes that this move is a great opportunity for Saudi citizens to invest in one of the world’s leading companies in the oil and gas industry. She is optimistic since Aramco confirmed that there will be incentives for the first subscribers and access to free shares. Through this move the Saudi government has considered citizens as partners in building the economy and is making history by opening up this opportunity, which will diversify the economy, enhance the market and create more job opportunities, she said. A number of businessmen in Makkah also believe that the Kingdom is going through the most important economic event in its recent years, the media center of the Makkah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI) reported. “This event will establish a new history in the evolution of the Saudi economy, enhance the performance of related sectors, improve the financial situation of the citizens, and build a dynamic and diverse Saudi economy within the ambitious Vision 2030,” the businessmen said. Through this move the Saudi government has considered citizens as partners in building the economy. Olfat Kabbani Saudi businesswoman Hisham bin Mohammed Kaaki, MCCI chairman of the board of directors, explained that Aramco’s plan to sell part of its shares in local and international markets will give the Saudi economic sector greater transparency and will contribute to fighting corruption as Aramco is one of the most profitable companies in the world. He said that the Kingdom was ranked first globally in the number of reforms and development processes and stood out as one of the most progressing countries as per a World Bank report, spearheading 190 countries. He said that this reflected the achievements of Vision 2030. Nayef Meshal Al-Zaidi, MCCI deputy chairman, said: “It is an established fact that Saudi Aramco is the world’s largest integrated energy and chemical company. It produces about one in every eight barrels of crude oil produced globally. It also operates on the most reliable operational system, making this initial public offering a great opportunity for a safe subscription for shares.” He said that the world is considering Aramco’s IPO with the intention to advance toward safe investment. “The company’s IPO at this time will be effective in attracting global funds to invest in the safe Kingdom, and this will silence those who are poisoning the world’s ears. The world today races to buy shares of the world’s biggest energy company, Saudi Aramco,” he said. Marwan Abbas Shaaban, MCCI deputy chairman, stressed that “the IPO is a great opportunity for the Kingdom to offer safe investment on a silver platter by placing the Saudi jewel, Saudi Aramco, in the hands of its people to make direct profits.” “Many sectors will benefit from this scheme and its impact on the public scene is visible,” he said. “The biggest beneficiary will be the Saudi economy and the financial market, which will undoubtedly double in size. The IPO will also increase the overall investment rate in the Kingdom, therefore contributing to the achievement of Vision 2030, which seeks to reach a prosperous economy that benefits Saudi citizens and create a thriving society.” Ibrahim Bardisi, MCCI secretary-general, thanked the Saudi leadership for their directives. “Whoever misses the IPO train has missed a lot of good that he deserves more than others, especially as the company is determined to continue to provide value to its customers, partners and major shareholder, including the Saudi government and the new shareholders,” he said. “The benefits of listing on the Saudi market will create added value in this market and attract foreign money to invest in a company the size of Aramco, which is worth $2 trillion, manages oil reserves estimated at more than 265 billion barrels (15 percent of the world’s reserves) and gas reserves of 288 trillion cubic feet, and employs about 65,000 employees.” Main category:�Saudi ArabiaTags:�Aramco IPOVision2030Makkah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI) Saudi Aramco to buy $1bn of IPO shares as incentive to executives and employeesSaudi Aramco IPO prospectus gives a snapshot of the most profitable company in history http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ Localization of Saudi military industry to support economic diversification https://www.arabnews.com/node/1582606/saudi-arabia https://www.arabnews.com/node/1582606/saudi-arabia Mon, 11 Nov 2019 20:43:35 UTC malawi at Saudi Arabia Mon, 2019-11-11 23:39 RIYADH: General Authority for Military Industries (GAMI), confirmed that the Kingdom will increase support for scientific research from its military budget to 4 percent during the next 10 years, in order to convey technology, weapons industry and military industries in general.

He added: “Any industrial sector can only persist in the presence of a high and sustainable research, development and technology programs that will stimulate educational programs, build human resources and embrace small and medium enterprises. This will certainly enable the Kingdom to obtain a sustainable industrial sector and technologies that it will be proud of.” Al-Ohali stressed: “The localization of military industries will increase from 5 to 50 percent by 2030. The first and most important benefit of localization is to enhance the Kingdom’s strategic independence, national security, as well as its military and security readiness. The economic and social dimension will include building a sector worth more than SR30 billion ($8 billion) in 2030, and contributing to the economic diversification of the Kingdom by supporting nonoil gross domestic product by about SR90 billion until 2030.” GAMI’s Deputy Gov. Mohammed bin Saleh Al-Athel said that the Kingdom has the world’s third-largest budget allocated to weapons, after the US and China, and it is the largest importer of weapons. The budget was previously distributed to five military entities: The Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of National Guard, the Ministry of the Interior, the Presidency of the State Security and the Royal Guard. Al-Ohali said that the military industries will provide nearly 100,000 direct and indirect jobs.

The ceremony was held at the Riyadh headquarters of Al-Nahda, a Saudi nonprofit organization, where the first group of beneficiaries were honored by prominent guests from Al-Nahda, the Public Transport Authority, the Saudi Driving School and Uber. Rehab Al-Ruwaili, a 24-year- old university student, benefited from this initiative. All her fees to the Saudi Driving School were paid for as she learned to drive and earned her license. “It was a great experience. Al-Nahda gave us so much support both emotionally and financially” she told Arab News. “Getting my driving license has given me confidence that I can help myself and run my own errands without relying on outside help,” she said. “It will help me secure a job, now that I have the means of transporting myself. In the past, we had to rely heavily on others.” Al-Ruwaili said that through its work, “widows, single mothers and unmarried women can support themselves. It made me realize that marriage is not a priority to fulfil our financial needs.” Masaruky’s participants and graduates had the opportunity to meet with staff members from Uber, Al-Nahda and partner organizations that have offered their services in support. During the ceremony, Brooks Entwistle, Uber’s chief business officer – international, said he was “honored” to welcome Masaruky’s participants.

Four solar energy experts, Prof. Derya Baran, Dr. Daniel Bryant, Dr. Nicola Gasparini and Dr. Joel Troughton, are the co-founders and brains behind the enterprise. “We’re bringing viable, sustainable and renewable solutions to this big problem, trying to find green alternatives,” said Baran, an assistant professor of material science and engineering at KAUST. “We (iyris) are focusing on energy harvesting devices with an aim to convert sunlight, which is free and available everywhere especially in areas like Saudi Arabia, into a form of electricity,” she added. The entrepreneurs strongly believe that the world is in dire need of energy and are trying to bring innovative solutions to Saudi Arabia. Baran said iyris was a “very exciting dream” that started in her laboratories at KAUST. “The team and I were working on solar energy-related issues, and we came up with the idea behind our startup, as our findings can be a viable solution to the energy problems of the future.” The startup produces transparent solar photovoltaics (PV) for future buildings and greenhouses in order to generate electricity from windows that can also block heat and be used as a power source. A number of names inspired by the desert were first considered for the company, but then the team came up with the idea of iris, the membrane behind the cornea of the eye. “As a science team, we ended up putting a ‘y’ in there, which is the opposite of lamda, a Greek unit for ‘wavelength of the light,’ so it defines that you see true with your eyes, and it’s about the light,” said Baran. KAUST solar center researcher Gasparini pointed out the difference between the firm and its competitors. “It’s a transparent solar technology different from conventional photovoltaics which are opaque, while iyris allows any window to generate electricity.” Troughton said: “Because iyris is built into the envelope of the building, installation costs are much lower than traditional PV technologies.” He added that projects like iyris were important for the environment because they allowed electricity to be generated, free from greenhouse gas emissions, right where the electricity was going to be used. In a sense, he said, the outside of a building became its own power station. The company’s products will be targeted particularly at high-rise buildings and agricultural greenhouses in warm-climate areas such as the Middle East and North Africa. “We are currently working very hard to commercialize this technology and we expect it to hit the market within the next couple of years,” said Troughton. Bryant, iyris’ chief operating officer, said that KAUST helped with the initial development of the company by providing labs and facilities within the entrepreneurship center, and the university continued to support the venture’s development. Last year iyris won in the second cohort of TAQADAM Startup Accelerator Program in KAUST, sponsored by SABB bank, and was recently awarded seed funding to begin its product development phase.
