The Anti-Corruption Authority also known as Nazaha continues the fight against corruption and crimes in the Kingdom. The arrested people are from 7 different ministries and 48 were government employees out of 65. the rest of the detained employees were from the Saudi Food and Drug Authority, General Authority of Meteorology and Environment Protection, and Presidency of State security.

Majed Garoub (Nazaha Official) said penalties for these offenses could include prison sentences and hefty fines. Stolen funds will be returned while compensation for inflicted damage may also be included.

These kinds of cases prove the private sector can be an element for growth, while simultaneously acting as an agent of corruption, Garoub said.

“Those who bribe the average worker — whether it be a judge, police officer or government employee — is a beneficiary from the private sector,” he said. “This is why we must care for the principles of disclosure, governance and transparency.”
