    Default The Saudi Arabia Purge

    Quote In a shocking development, Saudi press Al Mayadeen reported late on Saturday that prominent billionaire, member of the royal Saudi family, and one of the biggest shareholders of Citi, News Corp. and Twitter - not to mention frequent CNBC guest - Al-Waleed bin Talal, along with ten senior princes, and some 38 ministers, has been arrested for corruption and money laundering charges on orders from the new anti-corruption committee headed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, while Royal princes’ private planes have been grounded.

    Among those fired and/or arrested are the head of National Royal Guards, Miteb Bin Abdullah, the Minister of Economy and Planning, Adel Fakeih, and Admiral Abdullah bin Sultan bin Mohammed Al-Sultan, the Commander of the Saudi Naval Forces.

    Quote LONDON — Saudi Arabia announced the arrest on Saturday night of the prominent billionaire investor Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, plus at least 10 other princes, four ministers and tens of former ministers.

    The announcement of the arrests was made over Al Arabiya, the Saudi-owned satellite network whose broadcasts are officially approved. Prince Alwaleed’s arrest is sure to send shock waves both through the Kingdom and the world’s major financial centers.

    Saudi princes among dozens detained in anti-corruption purges



    The heir to the throne in Saudi Arabia has consolidated his hold on power
    with a major purge of the kingdom's political and business leadership.
    A new anti-corruption body, headed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin
    Salman, detained 11 princes, four sitting ministers and dozens of
    ex-ministers.

    Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a billionaire with investments in Twitter
    and Apple, is among those held.

    Separately King Salman replaced the national guard and the navy chiefs.

    The new anti-corruption committee has the power to issue arrest warrants
    and travel bans.Saudi broadcaster Al-Arabiya said fresh investigations had
    been launched into the 2009 Jeddah floods and the outbreak of the Mers
    virus which emerged in Saudi Arabia in 2012 - but analysts see the
    detentions as a clear move by the crown prince to strengthen his power base.

    Osama Bin Laden’s Brother Arrested In Saudi Crackdown

    by Tyler Durden
    Nov 5, 2017 11:53 AM

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-1...audi-crackdown

    Among the numerous high-profile figures arrested overnight in Saudi Arabia on “anti-corruption” charges, in addition to the shocking detention of prince Alwalaleed bin-Talal another unexpected name has emerged: that of Bakr bin Laden, chairman of Saudi Binladin Group and brother of Osama bin Laden. The Binladin Group is one of the biggest construction companies, with an annual turnover of $30 billion. It was carrying out the expansion of the Kaaba complex.


    The family rejected al-Qaeda's former leader, Osama Bin Ladin, because he was involved in terrorist activities in the 1990s. A quick primer on the Binladin Group from the WSJ:

    Based in Jeddah and [ZH: formerly] favored by Saudi Arabia's royal family, Saudi Binladin Group derives billions in annual revenue from a wide range of enterprises, including mosque construction, telecommunications and selling Snapple soft drinks in Saudi Arabia. Although the family's U.S. spokesman says Saudi Binladin Group is wholly owned by the extended bin Laden family, not including Osama, he said he could provide no information on exactly which members have an equity interest in the company.
    British paging company Multitone Electronics PLC said it was shocked to learn that its reseller in Saudi Arabia, Baud Telecommunications Ltd., is owned by the Binladin Group. "You're joking," Chief Executive Michael Walker said. "Oh bloody! I didn't know. I thought it was just Baud Telecom."

    The family has donated to colleges, Islamic organizations and other nonprofit causes in both England and the U.S. Abdullah, one of Mr. bin Laden's brothers, received a master's degree in law from Harvard Law School in 1992.

    Two years later, on a fundraising trip to the Middle East, the law school's dean made a pitch to another brother, Sheik Bakr Mohammed bin Laden, chairman of the family group. Bakr and the group subsequently donated $1 million to the law school, half for a visiting scholars program and half for financial aid for law students from the Muslim world. The family also gave $1 million to Harvard's Graduate School of Design in 1993.

    Robert Clark, the law school dean, said the gift was intended "to promote mutual understanding between scholars trained in Islamic legal systems and those trained in Western legal systems. We need that more than ever."

    Still, outside the Arab world, the Binladin name has become an increasing liability. Until a year and a half ago, the group had a prominent storefront on the main street of Astana in the new Kazakhstan, with a contract to create the city's master plan. Then, although the Kazak government believed the company's assurances that it was not linked to Mr. bin Laden, President Nursultan Nazarbayev dropped the company just in case someone got the wrong idea, a government official said.

    In 1999, the group changed the name of its telecommunications division from Binladin to Baud. John Dickson, a Baud manager, says the switch reflects a desire to choose a more modern name. Baud means distance in Arabic, and in English it is a measurement of speed.

    As the WSJ concluded back in 2001, "In the Arab world the Binladin name is looked upon with "absolute reverence - like IBM."

    Not any more, even though the reason why the Binladen chairman has fallen out of grace with the Saudi royalty has yet to be determined.

    As a reminder, a total of eleven princes, four current ministers and dozens of former ministers were among those who were detained. A list of those detained includes:

    Bakr bin Laden, chairman of Saudi Binladin Group;
    Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, chairman of Kingdom Holding;
    Prince Miteb bin Abdullah, minister of the National Guard;
    Prince Turki bin Abdullah, former governor of Riyadh province;
    Khalid al-Tuwaijri, former chief of the Royal Court;
    Adel Fakeih, Minister of Economy and Planning;
    Ibrahim al-Assaf, former finance minister;
    Abdullah al-Sultan, commander of the Saudi navy;
    Mohammad al-Tobaishi, former head of protocol at the Royal Court;
    Amr al-Dabbagh, former governor of Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority;
    Alwaleed al-Ibrahim, owner of television network MBC;
    Khalid al-Mulheim, former director-general at Saudi Arabian Airlines;
    Saoud al-Daweesh , former chief executive of Saudi Telecom;
    Prince Turki bin Nasser, former head of the Presidency of Meteorology and Environment;
    Prince Fahad bin Abdullah bin Mohammad al-Saud, former deputy defence minister;
    Saleh Kamel, businessman;
    Mohammad al-Amoudi, businessman;

    As reported overnight, many of the detainees were held at the opulent Ritz-Carlton hotel in the diplomatic quarter of Riyadh. The hotel’s exterior gate was shuttered on Sunday morning and guards turned away a Reuters reporter, saying it had been closed for security reasons though private cars and ambulances were seen entering through a rear entrance. Ironically, the hotel and an adjacent facility were the site of an international conference promoting Saudi Arabia as an investment destination just 10 days ago attended by at least one of those now being held for questioning.

    People on Twitter applauded the arrests of certain ministers with some comparing them to Germany's “the night of the long knives.” The arrest orders came from an anti-corruption committee just hours after the King Salman issued a Royal Decree to form the committee, which is headed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The new body was given broad powers to investigate cases, issue arrest warrants and travel restrictions, and seize assets. “The homeland will not exist unless corruption is uprooted and the corrupt are held accountable,” the royal decree said.

    As Reuters adds, the line between public funds and royal money is not always clear in Saudi Arabia, an absolute monarchy ruled by an Islamic system in which law is not systematically codified and no elected parliament exists. WikiLeaks has detailed the huge monthly stipends that every Saudi royal receives as well as various money-making schemes some have used to finance lavish lifestyles. In September the king announced that a ban on women driving would be lifted, while Prince Mohammed is trying to break decades of conservative tradition by promoting public entertainment and visits by foreign tourists.

    Analysts say the arrests were another pre-emptive measure by the crown prince to remove powerful figures as he exerts control over the world’s leading oil exporter. Others have speculated that the move was a "countercoup" similar to that conducted in June by crown prince Mohammad bin Salman to cement his control on Saudi power.

    The royal decree said the arrests were in response to “exploitation by some of the weak souls who have put their own interests above the public interest, in order to, illicitly, accrue money.”

    The real reason behind the arrests: to shore up power, remove even more potential opponents and threats, all under the guise of cracking down on corruption, a page taken right out Xi Jinping playbook as he sought to - and eventually became last month's - China's quasi emperor.
    The most recent crackdown breaks with the tradition of consensus within the ruling family, wrote James Dorsey, a senior fellow at Singapore’s S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies.
    “Prince Mohammed, rather than forging alliances, is extending his iron grip to the ruling family, the military, and the National Guard to counter what appears to be more widespread opposition within the family as well as the military to his reforms and the Yemen war,” he said. Scholar Joseph Kechichian said the interests of the Al Saud, however, would remain protected.
    “Both King Salman and heir apparent Mohammed bin Salman are fully committed to them. What they wish to instill, and seem determined to execute, is to modernize the ruling establishment, not just for the 2030 horizon but beyond it too,” he said.

    Yet while Xi Jinping's demi-god status is safe - at least until China's middle class revolts - that of Mohammed bin Salman may be far more precarious in the coming weeks, especially if he overestimated his power and influence, and the two consecutive countercoups ultimately lead to precisely what he fears the most: a coup - either peaceful or not so much - that ultimately removes him from power.

    There'sbeen a major cabinet overhaul in Saudi Arabia.
    It came hours after the establishment of an anti-corruption committee.
    More than a dozen princes and ministers have been detained and others
    have been removed from office.

    Among the detained was billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, one of the
    wealthiest men in the world. Given his widespread investments, his
    detainment could have an impact on global business.

    Published on 5 Nov 2017...Press TV
    Saudi Arabia's stock market has plunged following the apprehension of several
    princes and ministers in the Arab Kingdom.

    The Saudi equities index dipped 1.5 percent while the Kingdom Holding Company
    dived 9-point-9 percent. The giant investment firm is owned by Prince Alwaleed bin
    Talal who was among those detained overnight. The renowned billionaire is one of
    eleven princes and dozens of former and current high ranking officials arrested by
    the newly-formed anti-corruption board. Another prominent figure arrested by the
    board is Prince Miteb, son of the late King Abdullah. Ryiadh describes the move as a
    historic measure against corruption. Many analysts consider it an attempt by King
    Salman to sideline other senior members of the royal family in order to prevent any
    opposition to the crown prince.

    Saudi Arabia arrests: Corruption drive 'just the start'


    The purge bolsters the position of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman

    The arrest of dozens of Saudi royal figures, ministers and businessmen
    is just the start of an anti-corruption drive, the attorney general says.

    Sheikh Saud Al Mojeb issued a statement describing the detentions as
    "merely the start of a vital process to root out corruption wherever it exists".

    News of a major purge of Saudi Arabia's business and political leadership
    emerged on Sunday.

    It is seen as bolstering the power of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

    An anti-corruption body led by the crown prince, 32, ordered the detentions
    of 11 princes, four ministers and dozens of ex-ministers. Internationally
    known billionaire businessman Al-Waleed bin Talal was reported to be
    among those held.

    Saudi Game of Thrones: Risk to Dollar & Peace



    Published on 8 Nov 2017
    It's not merely an internal civil war — the power struggle in Saudi Arabia could affect
    the Petrodollar, the basis of the US economy, and lead to war for regime changes
    throughout the Middle East as a leaked cable between Israel & Saudi Arabia pushes
    for war against Iran & Lebanon.

    Saudi anti-corruption probe 'finds $100bn was embezzled'


    7 hours ago
    From the section Middle East

    Saudi Arabia's attorney general says at least $100bn (£76bn) has been
    misused through systemic corruption and embezzlement in recent decades.
    Sheikh Saud al-Mojeb said 201 people were being held for questioning
    as part of a sweeping anti-corruption drive that began on Saturday night.
    He did not name any of them, but they reportedly include senior princes,
    ministers and influential businessmen.

    "The evidence for this wrongdoing is very strong," Sheikh Mojeb said.

    He also stressed that normal commercial activity in the kingdom had not
    been affected by the crackdown, and that only personal bank accounts
    had been frozen.

    I know I've stated following before and will state it again: if my read sources are correct the House of Saud is not Moslem but Jewish (not a criticism, just an observation); IF true, it explains a helluva lot; like why Israel seems to have no problems whatsoever with Saudi Arabia but seems to have major problems with every other Arab nation;

    and we've all read about the possible Israeli/Saudi collusion/connection to 9/11 but that would only make sense if one is willing to realize the House of Saud is Jewish-

    like start with the dancing Israelis + most 'alleged' highjackers were Saudis; do we see a connection here?

    be well all-

    My concern is, if this really WAS ALL REAL, then aren't these leaks tipping Trump's hand to these so-called 'bad actors'? Doesn't history show that 'bad actors' always have an out in place? Supposedly the window has closed for them to get out of it, there's nothing they can do. But it could still be damaging to give advanced notice of what's about to go down.

    I have no idea if this is all real or not. Personally I am cautious, and I won't be holding my breath... (too many false dawns)

    I thought the same. Then I reasoned, maybe Trump and the "patriots" in the military industrial complex already have their ducks in a row and have sealed off all escape routes. Time will tell.
