اعلن النائب العام السعودي، وعضو اللجنة العليا لمكافحة الفساد الشيخ سعود المعجب عن التحفظ على

 

 
56 شخصاً من بين 381 تم استدعاؤهم على ذمة قضايا فساد.


وقال النائب العام السعودي في بيان له، الثلاثاء 30 يناير/كانون الثاني 2018، نشرته وكالة الأنباء السعودية "واس"، إن إجمالي من تم استدعاؤهم من قبل اللجنة (381) شخصاً من تاريخ الأمر الملكي، وعدد كبير منهم تم استدعاؤهم للإدلاء بشهاداتهم.

مشيراً إلى أنه قد تم استكمال دراسة كافة ملفات مَن تمَّ اتهامهم ومواجهتهم بما نسب إليهم من التّهم، وانتهت مرحلة التفاوض والتسويات، وتمت إحالة الجميع إلى النيابة العامة لاستكمال الإجراءات النظامية.

وأشار النائب العام في بيانه إلى أن تلك الإجراءات أسفرت عمن لم تثبت عليهم تهمة الفساد، وذلك بناء على ما توفر من أدلة وبراهين، إضافة لإفادات الشهود، وكذلك الإفراج عمن تمت التسوية معهم بعد إقرارهم بما نسب إليهم من تهم فساد.

وأشار البيان إلى أنه قد تم التحفظ على (56) شخصاً ممن رفض النائب العام التسوية معهم، لوجود قضايا جنائية أخرى، وذلك لاستكمال إجراءات التحقيق وفقاً لما يقضي به النظام.

وقال النائب العام إن القيمة المقدرة لمبالغ التسويات قد تجاوزت (400) مليار ريال (106.7 مليار دولار) متمثلة في عدة أصول (عقارات وشركات وأوراق مالية ونقد وغير ذلك).

وأوقفت السلطات في الرابع من تشرين الثاني/نوفمبر 2017 أمراء ومسؤولين حاليين وسابقين ورجال أعمال وشخصيات معروفة ونقلتهم الى فندق "ريتز كارلتون" في العاصمة السعودية.

وقالت السلطات إن التوقيفات جرت في إطار حملة لمكافحة الفساد نفذتها لجنة يرأسها ولي العهد الأمير الشاب محمد بن سلمان (32 عاماً).

وأثار توقيف هؤلاء قلقا لدى المستثمرين وخشية من أن يسارعوا إلى سحب رؤوس الأموال ما قد يؤدي أيضاً إلى إبطاء الإصلاحات في المملكة الباحثة عن تنويع اقتصادها لوقف ارتهانه للنفط.

الريتز بلا معتقلين 

وكان مسؤول سعودي قد أعلن في وقت سابق، الثلاثاء 30 يناير/كانون الثاني 2018، بحسب رويترز، أن السلطات السعودية أطلقت سراحَ جميع الموقوفين الباقين في فندق ريتز كارلتون في الرياض، الذي كان يُستخدم كمركز استجواب، في إطار حملة على الفساد.

وقال المسؤول لرويترز، طالباً عدم نشر اسمه وفقاً لقواعد الإدلاء بإفادات صحفية، إنه لم يعد هناك أي موقوفين في فندق ريتز كارلتون.

ولم يذكر عدد الموقوفين المتبقين في أماكن احتجاز أخرى في السعودية، ومن المعتقد أنه جرى نقل البعض من فندق ريتز إلى السجن، بعد أن رفضوا الاعتراف بارتكاب أخطاء، والتوصل لتسويات مالية مع السلطات.

وفي الأسبوع الماضي قال النائب العام، إن معظم الموقوفين وافقوا على تسويات، وجرى إطلاق سراح 90 منهم بعد إسقاط التهم عنهم، بينما لا يزال 95 رهن الاحتجاز. وقد تحال بعض القضايا إلى المحكمة.

"معاملة جيدة"

ومن بين رجال الأعمال الذين جرى توقيفهم في إطار حملة التطهير الأمير الوليد بن طلال، صاحب شركة المملكة القابضة العالمية، ووليد آل إبراهيم صاحب الحصة الرئيسية في شبكة قنوات (MBC).

وقالت (MBC)، إن التحقيق أوضح أن آل إبراهيم بريء تماماً، كما أصرَّ الأمير الوليد على براءته، رغم أن مسؤولين سعوديين قالوا إن الرجلين وافقا على تسويات، بعد الاعتراف "بمخالفات" لم تُحدَّد.

وكان الأمير الوليد قال في مقابلة مع رويترز، في جناحه بفندق ريتز كارلتون قبل ساعات من إطلاق سراحه يوم السبت، إنه جرت معاملته بشكل جيد، ووصف قضيته بأنها كانت نتيجة سوء فهم.

وأشار الأمير الوليد لوسائل الراحة المتاحة له في جناحه بالريتز، من مكتب خاص، وغرفة طعام، ومطبخ امتلأ بمخزون من وجباته النباتية المفضلة.

ووفقاً لموقع الفندق الإلكتروني فإنه يحتوي على 492 غرفة وجناحاً وحدائق على مساحة 52 فداناً. وقال الفندق إنه سيعيد فتح أبوابه أمام النزلاء بمنتصف فبراير/شباط، ويبلغ أقل سعر للغرفة في الليلة الواحدة 2439 ريالاً (650 دولاراً)

Every prince and billionaire businessman locked up in the opulent Ritz-Carlton hotel in Riyadh has been freed, Saudi officials claim three-months after ‘anti-corruption’ purge began

  • All princes and businessmen held in luxury hotel in Saudi Arabia released
  • Dozens have been confined in Ritz-Carlton since November last year
  • Saudi officials accuse the 185 men of corruption and holding illicit assets
  • Saudi Arabian attorney general Sheikh Saud al-Mojeb said on Tuesday that 56 corruption suspects were still in custody out of 381 high profile figures detained

Saudi Arabian authorities have released all remaining detainees from Riyadhs opulent Ritz-Carlton Hotel, where they were held as part of an anti-corruption campaign. 

Dozens of princes, senior officials and top businessmen were detained and confined in the opulent Ritz-Carlton Riyadh as the government launched the purge in early November. 

While the hotel is no longer being used as a detention centre, some of those held there have instead been moved to prison.  

Saudi Arabian attorney general Sheikh Saud al-Mojeb said on Tuesday that 56 corruption suspects were still in custody out of 381 high profile figures detained on graft allegations.

He said he has decided to release all those proven not guilty and others who had agreed financial settlements with the government after admitting to corruption allegations.

Mojeb also said that total settlements with the suspects had topped 400 billion riyals ($107 billion) in various forms of assets.

 

There are no longer any detainees left at the Ritz-Carlton, the official told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity under briefing rules.

Those who have been moved from the Ritz to prison are believed to have not reached financial settlements with the authorities.

Last week, the attorney general said that countrywide most detainees had agreed to settlements, 90 had been released after charges were dropped, and 95 remained in custody. Some cases will go to trial.

Among top businessmen caught up in the purge were Prince Alwaleed, owner of global investor Kingdom Holding, and Waleed al-Ibrahim, who controls influential regional broadcaster MBC.

MBC said the investigation found Ibrahim completely innocent of wrongdoing and Prince Alwaleed has insisted he is innocent, although Saudi officials said both men agreed to settlements after admitting unspecified violations.

In an interview with Reuters at his suite in the Ritz-Carlton hours before he was released on Saturday, Prince Alwaleed said he had been well-treated in custody and described his case as the result of a misunderstanding.

He showed off the comforts of his suites gold-accented private office, a dining room and a kitchen which was fully stocked with his preferred vegetarian meals.

However, a source close to the Saudi royal family has told DailyMail.com that Prince Alwaleed is under house arrest and is banned from leaving the country.

Alwaleed was released from detention Saturday after he made an undisclosed financial settlement with the Saudi government after two months held captive. The figure has been reported to be as high as $6 billion.

A source close to Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, known by his initials MBS, told DailyMail.com Alwaleed is still being closely watched and not really free.

His release was merely a PR exercise to counter media reports which had caused embarrassment for the Gulf state last week. 

 

The hotel has 492 guest rooms and suites and 52 acres (21 hectares) of landscaped gardens, according to its website. It has said it will reopen to the public in mid-February, with a nightly rate for its cheapest room of 2,439 riyals ($650).

Freed Saudi billionaire Alwaleed is effectively under house arrest and NOT really in control of his stakes in Twitter, Lyft and Citigroup despite paying $6 BILLION for freedom

  • Prince Alwaleed bin Talal was freed from his five-star prison, Saudi authorities revealed at the weekend and allowed him to be videoed there
  • He was rounded up in November along with other princes and billionaires accused of corruption but paid a $6 billion fine 
  • Alwaleed, who has the kingdoms largest private fortune, claimed to a Reuters journalist that everything was fine and there had been a misunderstanding 
  • Source in kingdom tells DailyMail.com that Alwaleed is not really back in control, will be closely monitored by authorities and not allowed to travel 
  • Dont buy the c**p of Alwaleed being treated right. Why does he need to be arrested and hung upside down to discuss things? the source said

Alwaleed was released from detention Saturday after he made an undisclosed financial settlement with the Saudi government after two months held captive. The figure has been reported to be as high as $6 billion.

The 63-year-old prince was arrested as part of a major anti-corruption clampdown in Saudi Arabia and held with dozens of other princes and billionaires in the luxury Ritz-Carlton hotel in Riyadh.

His daughter celebrates his freedom on Monday by tweeting a photograph of him, although it is unclear if it is a new image. 

A source close to Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, known by his initials MBS,  told DailyMail.com Alwaleed is still being closely watched and not really free.

His release was merely a PR exercise to counter a BBC documentary which had caused embarrassment for the Gulf state last week.

The source added that Alwaleed - believed to be one of the richest man in the Middle East - will have little control over his firm Kingdom Holding Company in the future. 

On Saturday Reuters released footage which showed Alwaleed being interviewed in a hotel suite in the Ritz Carlton, showing he was apparently being treated well.

The source said the footage was organized after Alwaleeds release to show he was being treated well - but was not the full story. 

Alwaleeds release has also led to the value of his Kingdom Holdings bouncing back to where it was before his arrest. 

Dont buy the c**p of Alwaleed being treated right, said the source.

They [the crown princes close advisers] panicked because the BBC has been slamming them hard.

This is done abruptly, last-minute, because now its very embarrassing for MBS after this BBC documentary.

Why does he need to be arrested and hung upside down to discuss things? Why dont you just do it from your own palace?

This is a guy who lived in a 435 bedroom palace, and hes now showing off a kitchenette in his suite thats the size of one of his toilets. Thats what theyve reduced him down to.

The source confirmed reports that Alwaleeds family said the prince arrived home on Saturday.

Hes going to be under house arrest, hes not going to go anywhere. The plan was always to take all his money and then put him under house arrest, but they just had to expedite it because of the BBC asking questions, said the source.

MBS is said to have been angry over a BBC Newsnight documentary which revealed details of Alwaleeds incarceration.

The report, which ran in the UK on Thursday, probed claims that detainees in Riyadh had been arrested as part of MBSs anti-corruption drive and tortured.

Canadian-based businessman Alan Bender, who was flown to Riyadh to help the Saudi regime construct a case against Alwaleed, told the program he spoke to the billionaire via a video conference.

But he appeared to be in a jail cell, not the luxury Ritz Carlton.

He was brought in through the teleconference and was sat down, Bender told Newsnight. We were looking at each other face to face. He didnt look comfortable. He was unshaven, he didnt look in his best condition at all.

He looked tired, a lot of twitching. It looked more like a detention room or something related to a jail cell. 

Even the sounds of the doors sliding back and forth, it didnt sound like he was at the Ritz Carlton, said Bender.

Benders account backs previous reports from the kingdom that Alwaleed and others had been moved to an actual prison from the Ritz Carlton.

Newsnight reported that Bender and others were brought in to read a script of allegations to Alwaleed, to pressure the prince into handing over his assets to MBS.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the arrest of some of Saudi Arabias wealthiest men and held them inside the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Riyadh. They included Alwaleed, until it was revealed at the weekend that he had been freed

Bender said he was flown in by the Saudi leadership because he had worked closely with Alwaleed previously, representing Alwaleeds alleged secret wife in negotiations over a separation settlement.

The BBC said Saudi authorities did not respond to their requests for comment.

 

The source added that the crown princes tactics had been very successful.

They claim that upon Alwaleeds arrest in November the crown prince seized more than $2bn of his assets held in Saudi Arabia, and that MBS is still in the process of taking control of Alwaleeds foreign assets – including shares.

Alwaleed owns shares in Twitter, Lyft, Citigroup, and top hotels including the George V in Paris and the Plaza in New York.

DailyMail.com revealed earlier this month that the Trump administration allegedly made a deal with the Saudi crown prince, allowing him to seize the other detained princes US assets as long as the assets remained inside the US.

I know for a fact all of his money is now under MBSs control, said the source. 

MBS slapped him around in front of the world, accused him of money laundering and extortion and leaked all his scandals.

Alwaleed is likely for now to stay in his role as chairman of his multi-million dollar firm, Kingdom Holding Company, but the source added that behind the scenes MBS would be controlling the company and reaping its profits.

The only thing Alwaleed requested was that he would be allowed to still work at Kingdom Holding, even though behind the scenes MBS took over, said the source.

Will MBS grant him that? Well see. Hes not going to let him travel, thats for sure. MBS will keep a very close eye on him.
