This is a BBC documentary about the colossal level of corruption in Saudi, amongst the Royal family ... it happens with the connivance of foreign powers as the documentary shows.

As someone says the size of the corruption is unequalled in any other country.

This is money that could have been used to develop Muslim majority countries like Egypt and Pakistan, it hasn't but you still get the people from those countries defending the Guardian of the Two Holy Mosques.

As I said hard to feel sorry for them.

The Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said: “O Salman, at that time the rulers will be tyrants, the ministers transgressors and the trustees embezzlers."

Salman (رضي الله عنه) said: “And is this to happen, O Messenger of Allah?”

The Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said: “Yes, by the One in whose hand is my soul."

(Source: Biharol Anwar, Vol. 6, Pg. 305-309)

فَقَدْ جَاءَ أَشْرَاطُهَا

Its portents have already come. [47:18]

The crown prince MBS was just announced as the Prime Minister.

The letter notes that Shehab, a 34-year-old mother of two children who worked as a dental hygienist and had received a scholarship to study in the UK, was arrested on 15 January 2021 while on holiday in Saudi Arabia. Court records show she was placed in solitary confinement, questioned and held for 285 days before her trial. She denies the allegations against her.

The Guardian has learned that the UK government has sought to intervene in at least one high-profile case, involving Salma al-Shehab, a Leeds University PhD student who was arrested, charged, convicted and sentenced to 34 years in prison after she returned home from the UK for a holiday. Her crime, under Saudi law, was using Twitter to follow and sometimes like or retweet tweets by dissidents and activists.

Mohammed bin Salman has been named prime minister of Saudi Arabia in a move that experts said would probably shield the crown prince from a potentially damaging lawsuit in the US in connection to his alleged role in the murder of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The UK government will face more pressure to act this week with the expected release of a letter by 400 academics, including staff and research students from UK universities and colleges who are seeking urgent action on Shehab’s case.

The letter calls on Liz Truss, the prime minister, and foreign secretary James Cleverly to “publicly condemn Salma al-Shehab’s sentencing and make representations to their Saudi counterparts for her immediate release”. It was sponsored by the pro-democracy group Alqst, which advocates for human rights in Saudi Arabia. The group said: “Salma should be looking forward, like us, to the new academic year, instead of languishing behind bars for the ‘crime’ of tweeting her legitimate opinions.”

Don't know how much of it is true, but in the book 'MBS: the Rise to Power of Mohammad bin Salman' the author Ben Hubbard describes MBS' parties in the Maldives as being full of alcohol, cocaine, and prostitutes. 

Certainly would not surprise me after seeing how many rich Saudis act in Beirut and Istanbul.
