Riyadh winds down ‘anti- graft’ campaign amid Khashoggi scandal

After bagging over $100 billion in cash-for-freedom settlements, Saudi Arabia says it has ended the probe of the high-profile figures detained as part of a much-criticized “anti-graft” campaign, as the regime continues to grapple with international pressure over the brutal assassination of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

In a statement released on Wednesday, the Saudi Royal Court said the crackdown had been concluded after summoning 381 people, some as witnesses.

The purge, spearheaded by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was launched in November 2017. Observers said the campaign was actually meant to consolidate the power of the heir to the Saudi throne and silence his critics.
