Looks like the Saudi princes’ Five-Star hotel is not what you would picture when you hear that term. They were photographed laying on bare mattresses inside what appears to a room that was used last month to hold the Future Investment Conference, world business leaders gathered and which Prince Mohammed highlighted his commitment to turning Saudi Arabia to ‘moderate Islam’ Some of those arrested attended the conference.
Looks like our President approves of the arrests
The arrests that began late Saturday included Prince Miteb bin Abdullah, who for the past four years had led the National Guard, and Prince Adel Fakeih, who was minister of economy since April.
The men were reportedly arrested in a crackdown that the attorney general described as ‘phase one’.
Prince Al-Waleed is accused of money laundering, bribery and extorting officials, an official told Reuters on Sunday.
