Saudi Arabia’s Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdulaziz Al al-Sheikh said the country’s Ministry of Justice should ‘name and shame those who were involved in forging real estate deeds valued at SR400 billion ($106bn), according to a report in local media.

“Their names should be made public to shame them,” he said.

“The Ministry of Justice has pursued these fake deeds and it should now disclose the names of the people who forged these deeds as a form of deterrence,” he added.

The mufti also warned against avenging Islam under unknown and deviant entities, after the Minstry of Interior arrested eight citizens for their involvement with extremist groups outside the Kingdom.

“Our children shouldn’t be involved in these practices and we should forbid them from putting their lives in danger,” said the mufti.
