The king of Saudi Arabia Salman bin Abdul Aziz signed a decree on the establishment of the structure of the State Prosecutor of the special Committee on the fight against corruption. This was announced by the attorney-General of the Kingdom Sheikh Saud bin Abdullah.
He stressed that king Salman and crown Prince Muhammad has set a goal to eradicate all manifestations of corruption to protect the Kingdom’s citizens and its natural resources. Sheikh Saud added that the struggle will be carried out transparently and within the law.
Recall: in November 2017 by order of the heir to the throne had been arrested dozens of members of the Royal family, government officials and entrepreneurs. They were accused of misappropriation of hundreds of billions of dollars of public funds.
They were placed in the hotel Ritz and they had started negotiations on the return of the state in exchange for the release. Most of those arrested agreed to the proposed terms. Treasury replenished at least 100 billions of dollars.
