Saudi Justice Ministry launches new twitter account

RIYADH, July 27, 2018

The Saudi Ministry of Justice has officially launched its twitter account in English (@MojKsa_EN) to raise awareness on the kingdom's judicial and legal system among the English speaking audience and also  to familiarise them on their legitimate rights and duties.

This comes as part of its initiative "highlighting judicial features and spreading justice culture domestically and globally," which is one of the Ministry's various initiatives in the National Transformational Program 2020.

Saudi Justice Minister Waleed Al Samaani also officially launched the ministry's new "Publishing in English" initiative for disseminating news, reports and coverage to different media outlets inside and outside the Kingdom, as well as digital and social platforms.

"It is part of a bigger plan by the ministry to expand on social platforms to open dialogue with English speakers inside and outside Saudi Arabia," remarked Majid AlKhamis, the head of media and corporate communication inside the ministry.

According to him, the project will spread the necessary legal knowledge amongst the public to enable them to benefit from the judicial services offered through the Ministry's portal, social media platforms and other platforms.

The project also focuses on spreading messages to raise awareness, utilizing videos and graphics to engage with the public.

Many of the messages focus on commercial courts and investors rights and legal proceedings in courts to ensure foreign investors are aware of the regulations. It also spreads the most significant news coverage and reports that interest the public as well as highlighting the legal rights of family, children, women and the labor community.

"We seek to establish an interactive platform on digital and social media among English speakers to help better understand the justice system within the Kingdom and know more about the services and procedures for those who want to benefit from legal services," added Al Khamis.-TradeArabia News Service
