As part of Saudi Arabia’s drive to empower women in various fields, 100 women were appointed as notaries public in the Kingdom.


Justice Minister Dr. Walid al-Samaani made the announcement on Sunday.


The move is aimed at expanding the role of women in judicial practice.


The ministry had recently, and for the first time, named several women to posts in legal, legislative, social, administrative and technical fields.


The ministry said the new notaries public will officially begin their work on November 1. They will start off with a dedicated three-month training program.
