Prince Alwaleed: "I am for anti-corruption crackdown"

(MENAFN) After being detained along with more than 200 other high-profile figures, Saudi Arabian billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal said that he supported the kingdom's sweeping crackdown on corruption.

"I am for the anti-corruption [crackdown] that took place in Saudi Arabia. Now, unfortunately, I was added to that group, but fortunately, I am out of it right now and life is back to normal," he told Bloomberg's Erik Schatzker in an interview set to air on Tuesday.

"So, I am not a person who is going to come and say -you know-I forgive but don't forget. I say 'I forgive and I forget' at the same time also."

Led by Saudi Crown Prince, the corruption purge involved Prince Alwaleed as he was released late January after more than two months of detention at the opulent Ritz-Carlton hotel in Riyadh.
