Qatari Public Prosecution and access to legal information

Our Dean recently secured access to the cases of the Qatari Public Prosecution office so that Faculty with an appointment may research criminal cases. These are records of criminal prosecutions in archives and are available only in paper to those with permission to access them. There are plans to digitize and translate them in the future. In May the Public Prosecution Office of Qatar adopted electronic case management and in July announced the first public access website at The Qatari Attorney General and his department are changing the rules of public access to legal information in Qatar!
