Islamic Law does not recognise the concept of sovereign immunity, and proceedings against any Saudi Arabian government entity can be instituted before the Board of Grievances. However, Royal Decree No. M/34 of 26th Jumada Thani 1431 Hejra corresponding to 8th June 2010 Gregorian has approved ratification of the United Nations Convention on Jurisdictional Immunities of States and Their Property of 2004, so that foreign states and their property enjoy immunity from suit in Saudi Arabia within the terms of the Convention.
