RIYADH: The Saudi Ministry of Justice has appointed 100 women notaries with the aim of facilitating judicial services for women and expanding their role in the Kingdom’s governmental justice sector. 
The ministry clarified that the newly appointed women notaries will officially start their work next Sunday with a specialized training program for a period of 3 months.
Many qualified women have been lately recruited at the Justice Ministry for the first time in the fields of law, Sharia, sociology, administration and technology, it said. 
In 2018, Saudi women began obtaining notarization licenses to work in private notary departments at the ministry of justice.
