8. Omer Dabbagh (Former president of the General Investment Authority)  
Accusations of creating fake contracts and embezzling the budgets for all the economical city projects during King Abdullah era. 

That was translated incorrectly perhaps. The Wikipedia page called '2017 Saudi Arabian purge' has his name listed as Amr Al-Dabbagh.

This is a very tense situation, I've read MBS is a liberally minded person, I wonder what the future holds for KSA.

MBS is the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad bin Salman.

Quoting “people briefed on the discussions”, the Financial Times reported that the Saudi government was demanding up to 70% of the individuals’ wealth in return for their freedom.

Bloomberg and aljazeera.com both reported 12 days ago that the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority sent a list with hundreds of names to lenders, telling them to freeze any accounts linked to them. Today (November 20, 2017) Reuters is reporting that over 2,000 bank accounts have been frozen.

More than 200 people were questioned and dozens of princes, officials and top businessmen detained in the anti-corruption purge. Over 2,000 bank accounts have been frozen by investigators, commercial bankers told Reuters.

Inshallah let this evil regime consume itself and fall into more serious infighting. 

They single handledly responsible for the majority of violent deaths that our Ummah has suffered since 1979.

They have disrespected our Prophet and his family. they have both directly tortured and maimed our brothers and sisters in the Gulf and beyond.

To see them attacking each other makes one feel that our prayers are being answered and Allah has finally decided to punish these modern day pharaohs.

This may or may not be true. But I think it does make sense that the initial round-up of the billionaires was done by a foreign agency and not Saudis.

The simple reason being that if Saudis had been involved someone would have tipped off the currents guests of the Carlton Ritz. IMHO.

Lyse Douchet's report.

ln an interview following the report, she said that Hariri was 'asked' to resign because he would not "confront" Hezbullah.

These and other events coincide in time.

This is all a BIG lie! Arresting family members and all other bs.. The westerners + Israel are trying hard to control Saudi and through Saudi the Gulf and Sunni states for another 50 years to come, more than now... and for that they want to make the 'son' of Salman as their new appointed king and as young he is.....he is going to serve them for a long period of time. To maintain every Saudi citizen' acceptance, and to work on this master+plan in a smart way, they make changes in Saudi, and at the mean time they create 'stories' just to keep the ignorant Arabs and Sunnis busy inside Saudi and around the region. I kind of believe that Saudi/UAE's isolation of Qatar is also for the same reasons.. Qatar might play along or it's just sacrificed for the greater good.
