Oman and its Legal System

The Sultanate of Oman is the oldest independent Arab country. According to the Constitution, Islam is the official state religion. Islamic Sharia law as well as the oral teachings of Prophet Muhammad form the basis of legislation. Recent royal decrees have placed the entire court system-magistrates, commercial, Shari'a and civil courts--under the control of the Ministry of Justice.

The court system in Oman, regulated by Royal Decree 90/99, is a three tiered system having the Elementary Court (the lowest court), Court of Appeal and then the Supreme Court (the highest court in the country). There is also an Administrative Court to look into cases against the government.

The Sultanate, having a modern outlook when it comes to protecting its citizens, has signed laws adopted by the UN. Some of the important ones are those concerning protection of human rights, protection of minorities, and conventions against all forms of discrimination against women and to safeguard the rights of the child.The cornerstones of Oman’s jurisprudence are rule of law, sovereignty of the state, and independence of judiciary.All penalties have to be in accordance with the law, before which all citizens/expatriates / individuals / corporations are given equal treatment.
