According to Al Arabiya TV, Saudi Arabia launched on Monday a new portal to connect detainees and inmates with their families.
Through the portal all conventional paperwork will be converted to online applications to save time and efforts of the families, the spokesperson of the Saudi Interior Ministry told the TV channel.
The families of the suspects and convicts could apply to get visitation permission. The confirmation of the visit permission will be sent to the families through mobile phone messages.
Detainees and inmates could interact with their families through emails or phone or video calls also via the portal.
