Saudi Arabia freezes accounts of detained corruption suspects

November 06, 2017

Saudi authorities have announced that they will be freezing the bank accounts of suspects detained in the kingdom on corruption charges.

Officials said that there is "no preferential treatment" in the handling of their cases.

The Saudi Center for International Communication, an initiative of the Ministry of Culture and Information, said that sums of money that appear to be linked to corruption cases will be reimbursed to the Saudi state’s General Treasury.

The Saudi anti-corruption committee, which was set up on Saturday by King Salman's royal decree and chaired by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, had arrested a number of princes and ministers. — Al Arabiya English
