Probably not because we haven't heard BBC reporting on it as they usually eagerly do on whatever tiny "progress" from this black hole of medieval moral darkness.
Klevius: The Saudi law is Sharia and essentially based on the same principles as all the world's muslims Saudi based organization OIC and its Cairo declaration on "islamic human rights" (Sharia)! And some of the most fundamental principles in islamic Sharia are totally at odds with Human Rights. That's why OIC created a completely separate legal system for muslims in the UN and the world! A system that is both racist and sexist compared to Human Rights.
European Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee in association with the Delegation for relations with the Arab Peninsula held an exchange of views in Brussels Monday with Mohammad Al-Issa, Saudi Minister of Justice, on the reforms of the judicial system in Saudi Arabia: "In its general principles, our judicial philosophy is not in contradiction with that which is in force in other countries, whether we are talking about civil, commercial or criminal proceedings. In Saudi Arabia, what is of the greatest importance to us is not to contradict the constitutional text, which is inspired from Islamic canonical law, the Sharia". And the judge has full discretion to interpret. He may draw his judgement from jurisprudence or he may draw it from his own interpretation.
Saudi "king" Abdullah: “We refuse to marginalize women in society in all roles that comply with Sharia”.
Klevius: Well, dah!
Saudi women are barred from driving and were required by law to seek the approval of a male “guardian” to work, travel abroad and to undergo surgery.
Aiyah Saihati: All these baby steps are not enough. There is a need for removing any constraints that make [women] unequal to men in terms of self-determination, be it the need for guardian permits for education, travel, hospitalization, as well as being treated with full citizenship, as men, in rights to housing or citizenship for her children.
Klevius: Impossible within any form of Sharia!
Rawda Al Youssef: My guardian knows what’s best for me!
Klevius: This is the most disgusting form of cultural "femininity", i.e. sex segregation!
