Saudi Arabia to summon nationals living abroad charged with corruption

Saudi Arabia plans to summon its nationals living abroad involved in corruption cases in cooperation with states they are living in. The Attorney-General, Shaikh Saud Al Mujab asserted that anti-corruption efforts would continue. Al Mujab added that suspects in corruption cases who fled the country would be brought back through international arrest warrants after enough evidence had been gathered against them.

The suspects are part of the biggest corruption case in Saudi Arabia that caused the arrest of 159 individuals including princes and sitting and former ministers in November 2017.
