The source said that the cancellation of defense orders issued under the Defense Law is conditional on the official end of the pandemic, stressing that once WHO announces the end of the pandemic, there will be no justification for applying the Defense Law.

He added that the Defense Law was activated to deal with the coronavirus pandemic, declared so by WHO, adding that as long as the organization does not officially declare that it has ended, the pandemic still exists.

He said that most of the defense orders issued during the pandemic were canceled, and that the defense orders related to the imprisonment of debtors and the termination of workers’ services remain in force.

Moreover, the source said that there is no intention to extend the Estidama program, which expired in October, since the grant allocated to the program was terminated.
