RIYADH –
Saudi Arabia’s Public Prosecutor Sheikh Saud Al-Muajab said that Saudi women have proved their efficiency and competence in public prosecution and all other jobs that they have been assigned to do. “Women are being allowed to take up jobs in this key sector for the first time in the history of Saudi Arabia, thanks to the utmost keenness given to them by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman and Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman,” he said.

Al-Muajab made the remarks during an audience with the recently hired women investigators at the Public Prosecution headquarters in Riyadh on Monday. Deputy Public Prosecutor Sheikh Shaalan Bin Rajeh Bin Shaalan was also present at the event, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

Al-Muajab noted that the Public Prosecution has chosen an elite team of young Saudi men and women to work in this key sector. This is the first batch of women employees and more women will be hired soon to work in this field. “The newly employed prosecutors have to undergo a full-year diploma course in criminology, and the course includes academic studies and training in the field of work as well as visits to agencies engaged in collecting evidence such as forensic experts to know closely about various aspects of the cases.
