Whistleblowers of corruption cases in Saudi Arabia will get financial and in-kind rewards, the kingdom’s anti-graft watchdog has said.

“The Authority grants financial and moral rewards to those whose reports lead to unmasking corruption instances or saving money for the public treasury based on rules about incentive rewards to those who report on corruption cases,” the Saudi Control and Anti-Corruption Commission said, according to the news portal Ajel.

Protecting everyone

The state agency, known as Nazah, also noted that whistleblowers’ information is treated confidentially without harm done to them.

“Nazaha protects everyone offering the information, provided they observe secrecy of their reports,” it added.

The commission has recently initiated handling dozens of suspected corruption cases and illegal transactions in different fields.

In recent years, Saudi Arabia has stepped up a clampdown on white-collar corruption, nabbing dozens of state employees and entrepreneurs.
