Speech of H.E. President of the National Anti-Corruption Commission on the occasion of forming a supreme committee headed by HRH the Crown Prince to identify and investigate offenses in public corruption


The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the era of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Alsaud started a new phase of sustainable development in all fields. He expressed, in his first speech that he delivered after ascending to the throne, a will and determination to fight corruption and protect integrity. Based on this will, he ordered review of all laws of control entities which will lead in effect to the activation of their jurisdiction and to do their job efficiently.
In the light of these approaches from King Salman and the support and care that he gives to competent entities, also with the help of the Crown Prince, anti-corruption entities have worked to implement their responsibilities in order to achieve the approaches and aspirations of the leader of this country and his Crown Prince. The royal order came after a continuous effort for the past three years to form a supreme committee to fight corruption and protect public money and the interests of the country and citizens.
This royal order shows the keenness of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques to protect the interests of the citizens in all fields and it also shows the realization of the dangers of corruption and its impact politically, economically and socially.
It carries a clear message on the national and international levels that Saudi Arabia does not tolerate corruption and the corrupt, and this approach is one of its main political, social and economic foundations.
Public money needs to be managed efficiently in order to protect it and achieve public interests, and not to allow waste or exploitation of it. It needs to be managed with integrity, justice and equality in order to achieve the developmental objectives for vision 2030 which aims for a prosperous economy, vibrant society and an aspirational country.
