Saudi Arabia’s anti-corruption authority has arrested 207 people in the last month from various government ministries.
The citizens and residents are accused of being involved in bribery, abuse of office, abuse of power, and forgery.
They allegedly carried out these crimes while employed in posts in the defense, interior, national guard, health, justice, municipal, rural affairs and housing, environment, water and agriculture, education, commerce, human resources and social development, and media ministries.
The Kingdom’s Oversight and Anti-Corruption Authority (Nazaha) announced the arrests on its official Twitter channel on Tuesday.
