Saudi judge arrested for taking a bribe

Saudi Arabia has announced the arrest of a judge for taking a bribe.

Judge Ibrahim Al Juhani was caught taking SR500,000 to find in favour of a citizen in a case in Madinah, the kingdom’s Oversight and Anti-Corruption Authority (Nazaha) said.

Authorities said the judge was “promised a total sum of SR4 million” from the citizen to close a pending case.

Work is underway to complete the legal procedures against the judge in accordance with the regulations.

The kingdom’s anti-corruption body said it would take action against anyone exploiting their position with actions that harm “public interest”.
