El-Sisi's directives were issued during a meeting with Justice Minister Omar Marwan on Tuesday.

The president also ordered equipping courts countrywide with top-notch technical gadgets and techniques to facilitate such services for Egyptians.

Egypt is paying special attention to digital transformation as it targets the digitisation of all government services countrywide.

During Tuesday's meeting, Marwan reviewed the latest decision adopted by the country's Supreme Judicial Council to develop the judicial facility, including by allowing women to work at the State Council and Public Prosecution.

In March, El-Sisi directed to allow women to become members of the State Council and the Public Prosecution.

Eleven female judges were transferred to the Public Prosecution starting the beginning of the new judicial year in October.

Also, several female members of the Administrative Prosecution Authority and the Egyptian State Lawsuits Authority were appointed starting October, Marwan told El-Sisi.

The minister reviewed preparations for celebrating the Egyptian Judiciary Day in early October for the first time.
