Audit office opened to monitor govt finances in Riyadh

  • General Auditing Bureau has also established the Saudi Center for Financial Auditing and Performance Monitoring

JEDDAH: Attorney General Sheikh Saud Al-Moajab on Monday opened a new office for financial reports at the General Auditing Bureau’s (GAB) headquarters in Riyadh.
The office is part of the government’s anti-corruption campaign to monitor government income and expenditure. Al-Moajab said the bureau reports on financial discrepancies and those responsible, while the Public Prosecutor handles the legal aspects.
“Corruption isn’t limited to a specific government agency or a certain company. Concerned authorities will keep monitoring,” he added.
Dr. Hossam Al-Anqari, head of the bureau, said government agencies are working together to improve services and the quality of their work.
GAB has established electronic connections with around 100 government agencies in line with the royal directives to allow the bureau to establish the Shamel e-audit system and to make it available to auditees for free.
GAB has also established the Saudi Center for Financial Auditing and Performance Monitoring. AN Jeddah

Al-Sudais condemns Riyadh attack

  • The secretariat of the Council of Senior Scholars noted the efforts of security services in Zulfi to preserve the safety of the country and protect its people

RIYADH: Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Sudais, president of the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques, has condemned the terrorist attack carried out in Zulfi on Sunday.
“Such terrorist acts are a clear contravention of Shariah laws and a violation of the Sunnah of the Prophet, and are nothing but a trick by the enemies of Islam to create strife and turbulence, targeting the security, stability and capabilities of the Kingdom,” he said.
Al-Sudais praised the courage of security services who were able to thwart the attack, and he urged Saudis to support their efforts to prevent future offenses by reporting suspicious activity.
He added that criminal acts such as the attempt in Zulfi endangered the security and stability of the Kingdom, and concluded his statement by asking God to protect the country and heal those wounded in the attack. The secretariat of the Council of Senior Scholars noted the efforts of security services in Zulfi to preserve the safety of the country and protect its people.
In a statement, it thanked those involved, and said that their success in thwarting the terrorists, who targeted the investigation center in Zulfi, was a clear endorsement of the rigorous procedures and efforts put in place by the state and others to maintain peace in the Kingdom.
