Billionaire Saudi Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal is Released from Detention

(From Fox News)

Saudi authorities on Saturday released billionaire Prince al-Waleed bin Talal, people familiar with the matter said, more than two months after he was detained in a widespread crackdown on corruption in the kingdom.

Prince al-Waleed is already at his house in Riyadh and is expected to resume his business activities as normal, two people said.

The 62-year-old prince was one of dozens of royals, senior government officials and businesspeople rounded up in early November, a wave of arrests the Saudi government billed as the first volley in Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s campaign against graft but which was also seen by many as a bid to consolidate power.
