30% Spike in Saudi Public Reports on Suspected Corruption

  • Business

The Saudi National Anti-Corruption Commission, also known as Nazaha, revealed on Sunday that a spike in complaints took place in 2017, showing an increase of over 30 percent.

In the statement, the body said that in the fiscal year 2017 reports reached 10,402, an increase of more than 30 percent compared to last year, in which 6,482 were received.




Financial and administrative corruption cases topped the list. Complaints on the embezzlement and squandering of public funds accounted for 37 percent of all cases,

while administrative mismanagement for 21 percent and abuse of power for 21 percent.

Nazaha’s website proved to be the most effective way to receive reports, at 34 percent, Nazaha’s smartphone application and personally visiting the bureau both ranked second at 21 percent each. The least popular method of filing a complaint was through telephone messages at 2 percent.

Revealing these statistics is based on upholding transparency, a principle established by the National Strategy for Maintaining Integrity and Combating Corruption, and Saudi Arabia’s national vision for transformation, Vision 2030.

Nazaha also asked citizens and residents to cooperate and report any suspected case of corruption, considering the public a vital partner in its anti-corruption campaign and mission.

On that note, the commission thanked all those who cooperated with it in reporting any suspicion of corruption.



The Anti-corruption Commission is intended to protect integrity and enhance the concept of transparency, as well as combat financial and administrative corruption in its different forms and techniques.
