Convicts with Unpaid Fines to be Supported Following HH Shaikh Nasser’s Directives

Representative of His Majesty the King for Humanitarian Work and Youth Affairs, National Security Advisor and Board of Trustees Chairman of the Royal Humanitarian Foundation (RHF), His Highness Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, issued his directives to the Coordination and Follow-up Committee of “Feena Khair” campaign to support convicts with unpaid fines who are facing financial problems. The support will be provided as part of the project, in cooperation with the Interior Ministry and the Ministry of Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowments.

HH Shaikh Nasser said that the directives to support Bahraini citizens with unpaid fines who received court verdicts and who are facing financial problems are in emulation and appreciation of the humanitarian initiatives of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and the efforts of the government spearheaded by His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa. He added they are also in line with the national efforts of Bahrain Taskforce, led by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Premier, to curb the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

RHF Secretary General, Dr. Mustafa Al-Sayed, the Head of the Coordination and Follow-up Committee in charge of distributing aid in ‘Feena Khair’ campaign, expressed sincerest thanks and respect to HH Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa for his kind humanitarian gesture, stressing that it reflects his big humanitarian role as a Representative of HM the King for Humanitarian Work and RHF Board of Trustees Chairman. “The directives embody HH Shaikh Nasser’s keenness to direct the donations of citizens and residents in “Feena Khair” campaign to people in need of them due to the current situation resulting from the exceptional and unprecedented global circumstances,” said Dr. Al-Sayed.

An amount of BD 330,000 from ‘Feena Khair’ campaign donations was allocated to the ‘Fael Khair’ project that was launched by the Ministry of Interior to enable people to donate cash to those suffering from financial hardships and who received court verdicts. “The targeted convicts can benefit from the programme after meeting the set up requirements in this respect.” he said.

The support is part of the third phase of “Feena Khair” Coordination and Follow-up Committee. He pointed out a line-up of projects adopted by HH Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa to serve citizens and those affected by COVID-19. “A budget of BD 17.43 million has been earmarked to support needy people, productive families and business owners who are not registered with the insurance system,” he said.

“The support also includes providing students from needy families with computers as well as contributing to the disinfection and sanitization of cities and villages, providing food baskets within the ‘Your Food at Home’ project, studying the establishment of a centre to study and treat pandemics, backing learning-at-a-distance technologies and supporting convicts with unpaid fines.” he added.
