The House of Representatives (HoR) approved the appointment of Sideeq Al-Sour, the Director of the Attorney General’s Office’s Investigations Department, as the new Attorney General during yesterday’s session.

“Today, a majority of the delegates attending voted to approve Mr Sideeq Al-Sour as Attorney General,” HoR Official Spokesperson Belheeg said yesterday.

The appointment brings an end to a long time without an Attorney General, as well as a political and jurisdictional fight over who has the power to select the Attorney General after 2011.
