Saudi Arabia has appointed new ministers for the National Guard and for Economy and Planning, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Saturday, citing royal decrees.

National Guard Minister Miteb bin Abdullah was replaced by Prince Khaled bin Ayyaf, while Economy Minister Adel Fakieh was replaced by Mohammed Al-Tuwaijri.



A new anti-corruption committee was formed. The new committee will be headed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Joining the crown prince on the committee will be the heads of the Anti-Corruption Commission (Nazaha), Public Security, General Prosecutor and the Investigation Authority.

Commander of the Navy, Abdullah Al-Sultan, was relieved of his position and has been replaced by Fahad Al-Ghofaili.

First: To identify offenses, crimes, persons, and entities involved in cases of public corruption.

Second: The investigation, issuance of arrest warrants, travel bans, disclosures and freezing of accounts and portfolios, tracking of funds, assets, and preventing their remittance or transfer by persons and entities whatever they might be. The committee has the right to take any precautionary measures it deems necessary, until they are referred to the investigating authorities or judicial bodies. It may take whatever measures it deems necessary to deal with those involved in public corruption cases and take what it considers to be the right of persons, entities, funds, fixed and movable assets, at home and abroad, return funds to the state treasury and register property and assets in the name of state property.

Third: The committee may seek the assistance of those it deems necessary and may set up teams for investigation, prosecution, etc., and may delegate some or all of its powers to these teams.
