A sweeping anti-corruption drive in Saudi Arabia has generated an estimated $106.7 billion in settlements, the kingdom’s attorney general has said.

Sheikh Saud al-Mojeb said 56 of the 381 people called in for questioning since November 4 remained in custody.

The others had been cleared or admitted guilt and handed over properties, cash, securities and other assets, he added.

According to BBC News, the attorney general did not name any of those involved, but they reportedly include princes, ministers and businessmen.
