The Saudi Attorney General said Tuesday the total number of individuals subpoenaed by the Supreme Anti-Corruption Committee reached 381, a significant number of whom were called to testify or provide evidence.
Attorney General Saud al-Mojeb said that “negotiations and settlements with those individuals who were charged with corruption were concluded; and cases were transferred to the Public Prosecution Office to complete the relevant procedures.”
The Public Prosecution Office decided to release some for lack of evidence. Others, who admitted to the corruption charges, were released after the government accepted to reach a settlement with them.
Al-Mojeb said that the settlements reached include real estate assets, commercial entities, securities, cash and other assets.
They have generated an estimated 400 billion riyal ($106.7 billion), he added.
The attorney general also said that the remaining 56 still in custody have not reached a financial settlement "due to other pending criminal cases, or in order to continue the investigation process."
