Aco Nur started his conversation by expressing his gratitude for all the support from the Saudi Arabian government in improving the quality of human resources for judges of religious courts by giving the opportunity to attend training at the Higher Judicial Institute Riyadh.
Currently, there are 5 batches participating in sharia economics education and training at the Riyadh judiciary high school. Each batch consists of 40 participants from Religious Court Judges. This program is held in collaboration between Badilag and Imam Muhammad Ibn Suud University in Saudi Arabia which has been running for quite a long time.

In order to realize a modern world-class religious court and excellent service, reliable human resources are needed in various ways, especially judges must have Arabic and English language skills, like it or not, law enforcers must be able to follow the pace of technological development.
At the end of the visit, Aco Nur invited both parties to cooperate according to their respective needs and committed to exchange experiences, information regarding religious courts in Indonesia, and to close the meeting between Badilag and LIPIA Aco Nur handed over souvenirs as a sign of brotherhood.
