Rababaa also said that the Execution Law, which decides the imprisonment terms of civil debtors, must discriminate between fraudsters and debtors, and have a humanitarian component, since debtors form a majority of the population and need money to run their businesses.

Rababaa said that women form a large percentage of debtors, reiterating that “fraud” should not be used to talk about debtors, as is the case now.
