VTV.vn - Saudi Arabia's Anti-Corruption Commission has made assertions about its effectiveness only two days after its establishment.

At least 17 princes, current ministers and former ministers have been arrested for alleged corruption. These people' accounts will be frozen. Saudi Arabia insists there will be no leniency or priority. The Saudi Anti-Corruption Commission was established under a royal decree headed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The royal decree states that embezzlers would be punished and Saudi Arabia wouldn't have any corruption persisted. Saudi King Salman has appointed two new ministers for Economy and National Guard.
