Saudi Arabia has announced that its Minister of State for Civil Service Khaled Al Araj has been removed from his post and is set to be investigated.

The announcement came as Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz issued at least 45 royal decrees on Saturday night.

A committee will be set up in the coming days to investigate allegations of abuse of the civil service office by Al Araj.

Essam bin Saeed has been announced to replace Al Araj.
