Saudi Arabia’s Oversight and Anti-Corruption Authority has initiated seven criminal cases and issued judicial rulings on seven existing cases, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Monday.
The new cases involve dozens of government, ministerial and municipal employees, members of university faculties, and citizens and residents. They face a variety of corruption charges, including exploitation, bribery, fraud, nepotism and accepting millions of riyals in cash payments, gifts or travel.
In one case, a former appeal judge was arrested over allegations he received a luxury vehicle in exchange for issuing an irregular ruling and revoking three other rulings, resulting in the release of the accused.
