Saudi Arabia: Saudi Arabia arrests five state employees in anti-corruption drive

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman renewed his support for the kingdom’s anti-corruption commission, calling its personnel “knights in a battle” after five government employees were arrested for financial wrongdoing.

In a letter to the commission, Crown Prince Mohammed thanked every member of the organisation, which is responsible for preserving the public purse and making sure state employees do not use position for personal gain.

“Today they are knights in the fierce battle to extract corruption from our dear homeland,” Crown Prince Mohammed said on Saturday.

On Friday, the commission said that five municipal employees in the vicinity of Riyadh were arrested after their swelling bank accounts were monitored.
