64 years of jail for gang members for smuggling SR65mn and 19 kgs of gold

A Saudi court has sentenced members of a gang to a total of 64 years in jail for smuggling SR64.86 million and 19 kilograms of gold outside the Kingdom.

The court, which found the accused guilty of money laundering and bribery, also ordered the confiscation of the money amounting to SR1,020,690 seized from one of the convicts as well as vehicles used in the crime, the Public Prosecution said in a statement.

The convicted citizens have been banned from traveling outside the Kingdom for a period similar to the period of their imprisonment while convicted foreigners will be deported after serving their prison terms. The concerned authorities are working to recover money that had been smuggled out of the Kingdom.

The Public Prosecution said that the arrest of the organized gang was made after getting information about their involvement in illegally collecting funds and transferring them outside the Kingdom.

The Public Prosecution stressed that it will spare no effort in implementing the directives of the rulers and achieving their aspirations by strictly implementing the regulations against all those who are involved in committing such crimes.
