Saudi plans world's biggest biometric center

Dubai, March 22, 2014

Saudi Arabia plans to set up world's biggest biometric center in the kingdom which will contain the eye, facial and finger imprints of almost 30 million people, according to a report.

The system, which will be able to curb malicious intent for committing crime or terrorist acts, will keep the Kingdom at the forefront in security-related matters, said the Arab News in its report citing an expert.

The system, which will be able to curb malicious intent for committing crime or terrorist acts, will keep the Kingdom at the forefront in security-related matters, stated Adil Al-Aid.
 
The expert called on GCC countries to link their biometric centers in order to eradicate crime and easily identify potential criminals in order to enhance regional security.

The biometric system has succeeded in many civilian and security issues and is gaining popularity among users, said Al Aid.

Last year, the Kingdom announced its plans to create the first Saudi biometric center in the UAE to carry out identification procedures before issuing visas to visitors and pilgrims, stated the report.

Prince Khaled bin Saud bin Khaled, assistant minister of foreign affairs, said at the time that the centers would be initially opened on an experimental basis in the UAE, South Korea and Germany.
