With regard to the state’s transformation towards digitization and the mechanization of all databases; the president directed the launch of the electronic platform for debtors and female debtors, with a network connection to all concerned institutions of civil associations working in this field, so that the platform helps speed up the conduct of social research for debtors, and to study the best effective ways to treat the causes of fines.
