The detainees are accused of corruption, under investigation.

The scale of the investigation is impressive. According to the agency, on Saturday, the Higher Committee on Combating Corruption decided to detain the princes from the ruling family, as well as several dozen ministers, both retired and members of the current cabinet, on charges of corruption 11.

The Higher Anti-Corruption Committee was recently formed by order of King Salman. The task of the new body is to “conduct investigations, issue arrest warrants and arrests, as well as impose a ban on the exit of suspects from the country,” explains the publication.

Details of the corruption case is not given.

In addition, on Saturday, the King of Saudi Arabia appointed new heads of the Ministry of Economy, the Ministry of National Guard and the commander of the Navy of the monarchy.

      "The High Anti-Corruption Committee has decided to detain 11 princes from the ruling family on corruption charges."

      Really, in this way, King Salman reduces the number of heirs to the throne?

              When everything is in order in the country with the economy, princes and ministers are not arrested.
              They call for a private conversation, where they reproach, demand to share. In a pinch, they will arrange a fatal accident or terrorist attack. But litter from the hut can not stand.
              Here ... Oh, bad ... The Saudi economy has overtaken. If you already decided to drop oil prices in order to strangle your competitors, you didn’t have to plunge into several wars. We thought that an easy walk through Yemen and Syria would be with the USA behind. Yeah, the United States needs Saudi, influential in Asia, like a hungry wolf - another wolf near a single rabbit.

          Maybe you're right. Although bribes are just one of the components of corruption, and far from the biggest. Corruption is any use of one's official position for personal gain.

          Another thing is interesting to me: how could they be detained with such long names without breaking the law? In the same place, while your name is read out in an arrest warrant, you could make your legs a hundred times! lol

        There is not a king, but the crown prince eliminates competitors.
        Anti-Corruption Committee headed by the crown prince Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman, whose ascension to the throne is expected next year, detained eleven princes from the ruling family, four ministers of the current government and 34 ex-ministers. This was reported by the Saudi television channel Al Arabiya.

        hi , Alexander.
        IMHO, Saudi kings and princes were stuck somewhere in the last century, when they held in their fists the entire BV and dictated their "Wishlist" on world energy exchanges. They did not notice that much had changed in the world, they did not notice how the treasury of the kingdom was plundered by the close retinue and princes of blood. The moment of truth came and the heirs took up their heads - how did they come to such a life? But in the UAE and the SA there has never even been a hint of democratic institutions, so the guillotine and the rope are the main tools for restoring the well-being of the ruling regimes.

        I wonder how they identify corrupt officials. They are all brothers, cousins ​​and nephews. Apparently the tribes, uncle for money a little lowered. I could have forgiven, by kinship, but somehow it turns out inhumanly. Especially if the head is cut off! How will the king look in the eyes of his sister?

    And the detention order for the prince was written out one or for each name? Has the CA started the fight against corruption, and even with the main family? Something happened in the kingdom and most likely a simple power struggle.

    In my opinion and ours should learn! We have a terrible reprisal - resignation and a couple of years on probation. Yes, and it is rare, once a year some kind of ace is arrested, only for public relations. The authorities do not touch their own. negative hi

      Well, firstly, there is never a lot of money. And secondly, all the same, power. The mere thought that you are one of the legitimate heirs, and in some circumstances, you can become the whole king, drove many crazy. At all times, one not-so-cautiously dropped word, for many crown princes, ended poorly. On the other hand, all these royal dynasties, with their heirs and power, live according to their own laws and in a "different world", which for us, ordinary people, is very difficult to understand. They have a completely different motivation in life.
