Indonesians in Saudi should be aware of law: Consulate

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Indonesia Consulate General in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, has been incessantly conducting legal and customary counselling activities in Saudi Arabia, after a rise in number of legal cases, including serious cases, affecting the Indonesian citizens in the country.

The Indonesia Consulate General (KJRI) in Jeddah, in its statement received here on Friday (March 9), expressed concern over the number of Indonesian citizens in Saudi Arabia who were involved in violation of legal norms and customs prevailing in the country.
