According to Reuters news reports, the financial reporting the office would be a part of the state’s general auditing bureau that used to watch out the financial discrepancies, the state news agency SPA has quoted public prosecutor Saud al-Mojeb as saying on Monday.

According to the agency, Saud said, “Corruption is not restricted to a specific company or government sector. The concerned authorities will be monitoring.” He further added saying, “Public prosecutors would handle any investigations.”

Saudi Arabia crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, last week, said the crackdown, which has been launched in November 2017, which has netted scores of the nation’s political and economic elite, had now achieved its objectives.
