One thought on “Mohammed Al Amoudi arrested in Saudi Arabia for corruption (Reuters)

  1. This is an unnecessary provocation of stability and peaceful coexistence in Saudi Arabia. The Crown price wants to crush any potential opposition that he is aware of as he tries to succeed his father to become a monarch. The balanced actions of the older sons of the founder is being confronted for an action that has not been tried before, fructuring the delicate system that held the monarchy together. It is a major attempt at cetralizing power which has not been tried before. The crwn Prince risks at distabilizing the system whose repurcations are difficult to measure. It is a major risk that the Crown Prince should be prepared for, otherwise he will face turmoil and demands from all sectors of society that the state does not have the institutions to handle at this time. It may be the cause for the Hijaz and the oil rich area around Rasta Nura to secceed from the union.
