The Administrative Court’s decision came despite the fact that the ruling of the lower court should be enforced immediately. Commenting on the verdict, former Board Chairperson of cooperative Faisal Al-Faraj said the ruling reinstated the board by the virtue of the law, so he called on the ministry to adhere to the judicial ruling which symbolized the integrity of the board.
