The Saudi anti-corruption campaign has come to an end, officials announced on Wednesday.
Through an official government Twitter account, authorities announced that the accused detainees who refused “financial settlements” were being referred to the Public Prosecution.
The below infographic created by the Public Prosecution was tweeted, detailing the results of the campaign which was launched in the last quarter of 2017.
Most detainees have agreed on settlements and 90 people have been released after charges were dropped. Settlements included cash, real estate and other assets.
Meanwhile, 95 people are still detained, according to the graphic.
During the 80 days of the corruption probe, the kingdom’s newly-formed Supreme Anti-Corruption Committee summoned 350 suspects, including those who had been accused of corruption, witnesses and those with relevant information.
The public prosecutor has stated that “no violations were made against the detainees,” while adding that they all had access to legal representation.
“Those who were released are free to move without restrictions,” he added.
