Two Saudi citizens have been sentenced to 28 years in prison and fined up to $3.47 million after an investigation revealed that they were involved in an organized crime gang laundering money overseas.

A Saudi man and woman opened commercial records and bank accounts before and handed them over to expats for a monthly fee.

The duo allowed the expats to invest in their commercial unit, use their bank accounts, deposit money they obtained illegally, and transfer it abroad.
