95% of suspects detained in Saudi Arabia corruption probe accept settlements

RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s attorney general said Tuesday that most of the 159 individuals detained in a corruption sweep have agreed to pay a financial settlement a month after the kingdom’s powerful crown prince launched the unprecedented purge against high-level princes, businessmen, officials and military officers.

A little more than a week ago, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman told the New York Times that 95 percent of detainees agreed to pay a settlement in cash or shares of their business. (AP)
