Saudi Arabia: Judge, officer and businessmen probed on charges of corruption, bribery and abuse of power

An official source at the Control and Anti-corruption Authority (Nazaha) has stated that the commission has started procedures for investigating a general court judge in one of the Kingdom’s regions after receiving a report that the judge had received bribes related to cases he was handling. He was also involved in dealing in trade.

The results of investigations have proved the report against the judge to be true. They also showed that several others were also involved in the bribery (graft) case.

They included the middleman who was appointed by the judge to receive the cash bribes in cooperation with the judge’s brother (an officer with the rank of colonel), businessmen and a lawyer.
