SCTA compensates owners of archaeological sites

SCTA compensates owners of archaeological sites (Forimmediaterelease.net) The Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities (SCTA) has allocated more than US$5 million to compensate the owners of archaeological sites. Dr. Ali bin Ibrahim Al Ghaban, vice president of Antiquities and Museums Affairs, stated that SCTA has already compensated the expropriation of four sites: Zubaida and Al Mulgata sites in Onaiza municipality, Ethra Palace in Al Jouf, and Eain Qanas in Al Ahsa. He added that these compensations were awarded to the beneficiaries in accordance to the instructions of His Royal Highness Prince Sultan bin Salman, president of the SCTA.

Upon the annexation of the antiquities and museums to the SCTA, this issue was given great attention and was prioritized by the SCTA's president. Dr. Ghaban stated: “Prince Sultan exerted huge efforts to secure the approval of the Saudi Council of Ministers to address the issue of the ownership of the antiquities and urban sites and to compensate the owners of these sites, adding that Prince Sultan described the cabinet’s approval on expropriation as extension to the concern and attention of the Kingdom's leadership to preserve the national urban heritage and antiquities.
