Jafar Qasim / Anatolia The Saudi authorities announced the arrest of at least 45 people, including 6 army and police officers, after they were charged in corruption cases.

In a statement issued late Thursday, the Control and Anti-Corruption Authority (government) said that the authority had begun investigating 889 criminal and disciplinary cases, the most prominent of which were “suspicions of corruption, utility and abuse of the influence of a public office.”

She explained that 22 people were arrested, including 13 government employees, 4 businessmen, and 5 resident employees, and that the amounts and real estate properties belonging to the defendants were seized, worth about 602 million riyals (about $ 160 million).

In another case, the Saudi Commission itself confirmed the arrest of 4 army officers and 5 employees of a company contracting with the Ministry of Defense to implement some projects at a military base (the location of which has not been determined), for “having included incorrect documents and facts to prove the completion of a project.”

The Control and Anti-Corruption Commission also clarified that 14 people, including two police officers, were arrested on charges of several charges, most notably “embezzlement, bribery and violating the law in commercial contracts.”

And last September, Riyadh announced the dismissal of the commander of the joint forces, Fahd bin Turki bin Abdulaziz, and the Emir of Al-Jawf region, Abdul Aziz bin Fahd bin Turki, and their referral for investigation into an incident of corruption in the Ministry of Defense.

In March 2018, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz issued a royal order approving the creation of specialized departments for corruption cases in the Public Prosecution, “within the framework of combating corruption in all its forms and forms and preserving public money.”
