JEDDAH: Investigators have started questioning officials and businessmen involved in the Nov. 25, 2009 Jeddah floods after collecting evidence against them. Those involved in the case will be brought to court.
Security authorities have obtained confessions from some officials — including top executives of the Jeddah Mayoralty and the Water and Sewage Department — that they took bribes from contractors. Acceptance of bribes is the main accusation against most of those involved.
Man! These guys can’t do ANYTHING right.
Of all the things Middle East countries should NOT shortchange themselves on, it’s water and wastewater projects. Given the affluence of the Saudi Monarchy, the notion that they’d shortchange themselves on a public wastewater project is unthinkable.
The Saudis probably can’t even investigate this right. The manner in which “…authorities have obtained confessions” is immediately suspect.
