This court has a high rank in the criminal justice system, since the most important proceedings with severe penalties are in the jurisdiction of this court, and in fact a primitive and public court with conditions of due process of limited legal constraints that will have some forms and ambiguities in doctrine and practice, and that is why and the reason the writer has chosen the jurisdiction of the court for review and research.

Excessive crimes punishable by self-stroke and retribution are executed, executed and imprisoned, as well as political and press offenses within the jurisdiction of the court.
