The committee urged the general public to purchase insurance certificates from registered Saudi insurance companies or their authorised agents.
As per the Media and assurance Awareness Committee there shouldn’t be any modification to the information furnished in the Insurance certificate. Any such modifications will be considered as forgery punishable under the Saudi Law.
Article (13) of the Anti-Forgery Law stipulates that whoever forges commercial, financial or bank documents or insurance certificates shall be sentenced to 1 to 5 years in prison and a fine of SR 400,000.
So, please be aware of Insurance Fraud Penalty and Fines before modifying any such documents.
