No search without warrant
December 28, 2016, 8:20 am

Attorney-General at the Public Prosecution Counsel Mohammed Al-Duaij said policemen are not authorized to search vehicles and open the car boot unless motorists are caught redhanded doing illegal work or with permission from the Public Prosecutor, reports Arab Times daily.

Al-Duaij said motorists can refuse to allow the policemen to inspect their vehicle unless there is a warrant from the Public Prosecution, which means the man in uniform will have to wait until completion of the procedures. He added the lack of experience among some policemen is the reason why some suspects are acquitted citing lack of evidence or faulty inspection procedures.
