JEDDAH — There is a move to introduce a provision in the law to end custodianship of minors at 18 years of age unless the court rules to continue the custodianship even after 18.

Okaz/Saudi Gazette has learned from informed sources that a committee has been set up to study the addition of this provision to the Shariah Proceedings Law of 1435 H.

The concerned court has to take a decision if the minor wanted to prove his adulthood before that age, the sources said.
