Portal launched for international treaties

11 Nov 2020

The Ministry of Justice and Legal Affairs has launched Omani Portal for Treaties (Duwaly) in both Arabic and English.

The initiative is part of the process of digital transformation to e-governance, and aims to encourage the use of the ministry’s online services by the public, and to develop such services.

The portal was launched by H E Dr Yahya bin Nasser al Khusaibi, Undersecretary of the ministry, in the presence of Dr Mohamed bin Ahmed al Burashdi, acting director general of Legal Affairs, and a number of the ministry’s employees.

The Omani Portal for Treaties (Duwaly) is one of the initiatives by the Ministry of Justice and Legal Affairs to make information related to international agreements, which the sultanate has ratified or acceded to by virtue of Royal Decrees, accessible.

The portal is also an endeavour by the Ministry of Justice and Legal Affairs to contribute to the process of achieving the objectives of Oman Vision 2040, particularly in regard to prioritising  legislation, judiciary and audit, and raising the legal awareness of society. It is therefore hoped that the Omani Portal for Treaties (Duwaly) will contribute directly to the process of raising the legal awareness of society.

The Omani Portal for Treaties (Duwaly) contains nearly 600 agreements that were ratified by virtue of Royal Decrees. The portal also contains information about the date of signing these agreements, date of ratification or acceding to them.

The competencies assigned to the Ministry of Justice and Legal Affairs, in accordance with Royal Decree 88/2020, include reviewing of international agreements and memorandums of understanding which the sultanate intends to sign.
