The Supreme National Authority for Combating Corruption (SNACC) hinted that it could take legal procedures against state officials who failed to submit their financial disclosures to the authority.
Head of Financial Disclosure Sector at SNACC Mohammed Hamoud Al-Matari pointed out that his authority will take measures against state officials who are included in the anti-corruption law and failed to provide their financial disclosures.
Al-Matari further revealed that they received as of now 5,200 financial disclosures from officials.
The authority sent warning letters to the 1,650 state officials who did not submit their past financial disclosures.
This comes after these officials failed to provide their financial statements in the due time, and this allows the authority to seek other means like taking legal actions against them.According to an official at SNACC, the authority has a lot of complicated and corruption issues which might lead authorities into strong conflict, especially when big heads are involved in such issues.
