RIYADH (Rahnuma): The Justice Ministry has completed a number of projects in the last 12 months including the launch of e-services and the creation of notary positions for women, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
Other developments from the last 12 months include the inauguration of labor courts by Minister of Justice Sheikh Dr. Walid bin Mohammed Al-Samaani and the documenting of judicial hearings in audio and video.
The ministry last month announced Grade-7 “notary public” vacancies for women to work at offices across the country. The breakthrough move to boost female employment within the legal sector is part of the ministry’s plans to support and empower women, widen their career options and encourage them to play a bigger role in the sector.
Female notaries have started helping people in accordance with the ministry’s digital efforts, without using paper, and issuing low-risk authorizations through www.moj.gov.sa.
