Practice Relating to Rule 100. Fair Trial Guarantees
Section D. Information on the nature and cause of the accusation
In 2005, in its second periodic report to the Committee on the Rights of the Child, Oman stated:
Any person who is arrested or detained shall immediately be told of the reasons for his arrest or detention and shall have the right to contact whomsoever he wishes to notify of the event or seek assistance from in the manner regulated by law. He must be promptly informed of the charge against him. He may lodge a complaint with the courts concerning any measure that restricts his personal freedom, as may his representative. The law shall regulate the right of complaint so as to guarantee settlement of the complaint within a set period, failing which the detainee must be released.
