National address law major step towards developing legal system: SJC chief Apr 23, 2019 0 553 12345 QNADohaCHAIRMAN of the Supreme Judiciary Council (SJC) and President of the Court of Cassation HE Dr Hassan bin Lahdan al Mohannadi affirmed that the national address law published in the official gazette is a major step towards developing the national legal system.In a press statement, Mohannadi said that the first electronic announcement will take place six months after the publication of the law in the official gazette, and that all transactions with governmental and non-governmental entities will be carried out after that. He stressed that the national address law is in line with the directives of the Amir HH Sheikh Tamim Hamad bin al Thani and seeks to facilitate citizen transactions, reduce bureaucratic hurdles, ease litigation procedures and achieve justice to keep pace with the rapid developments being witnessed in all fields.He said that the new law represents a qualitative leap in the judicial procedures and contributes to reducing the problems of judicial declarations that impede the functioning of the courts, as it allows the authority to identify one or more address details of the national address to make judicial declarations and official notifications.The SJC chairman explained that according to the law, every person in the State of Qatar, a natural and legal citizen or resident, will have a national address that provides legislative assistance to governmental and non-governmental bodies in taking the necessary measures, and ensures access to the persons concerned in cases related to personal interests and the general welfare of the State.He added that this address has a binding and direct legal authority in judicial declarations and transactions, pointing out that the national address includes data related to address of residence, fix and mobile telephone, e-mail, and address of employer in public and private sectors, the permanent address abroad, if any, and any other data specified by the competent authority. It serves all citizens and residents in their transactions with various governmental and non-governmental entities, without the need for traditional paper correspondence.He pointed out that Qatari and non-Qatari individuals, institutions and companies should provide the competent authority at the Ministry of Interior with the national address as a mandatory procedure of the law, and that failure to report this will result in criminal punishment and specific penalties stipulated under the law. He added that the law obligates every person in the State of Qatar, whether Qatari or resident, to provide a national address with key data required by the law and determined by the competent authority in the Ministry of Interior, and that individuals are obliged to update their data on a timely basis.
