General Security police not allowed to issue citations .



The Interior Ministry’s Assistant Undersecretary for General Security Lt Gen Faisal Al-Nawaf issued a decision to take back traffic ticket books from all non-commissioned officers and policemen of the sector and hand them to the traffic department. The decision was taken after an increasing number of complaints from citizens and expats against non-commissioned officers and policemen of the supervisory and inspection department at the traffic violations investigation department, accusing them of maliciousness and abuse of authority in issuing traffic tickets. The general security policemen’s job does not include issuing traffic tickets, and some of them are not fully aware of the traffic violations law.-K.T.
