Saudi Arabia’s National Anti-Corruption Commission (Nazaha) eradicated and took legal action against violations and infringements on government lands with an estimated value of over $266 million (one billion Saudi Riyals) located in the valley of Namar in Riyadh.

The lands are estimated to be about 20 million square meters in total, where individuals placed signs reading “private property” in order to mislead and cover up major violations.

Nazaha’s efforts also resulted in the disqualification by the competent judicial authorities of a control instrument on another land in the Namar area estimated to have an area of over one million and 300 thousand square meters.

The commission also discovered the forging of a ruling on a white land, with an area of 19 million square meters located south of the province of Muzahmiyya in Riyadh, and the case was referred to the relevant authorities to complete the formal procedures in the case.

Nazaha announced that its recent work is based on a principle of transparency based on the kingdom’s Vision 2020, and the commission’s focus on fighting corruption and its responsibility to protect the country’s resources and assets.

Nazaha thanked all citizens who cooperated in revealing information about these corrupt cases, as well as the relevant authorities for investigating these financial and administrative corruption cases.

Nazaha called on all citizens to report any violations of state property through its call center or its website.
