Protecting integrity and combating corruption requires comprehensive reform programs that enjoy strong political support. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been keen to share the interest of the international community in fighting corruption through its commitment to concluding agreements, attending conferences and seminars, and strengthening international cooperation. As an extension of this concern, the Kingdom has made several efforts in this regard, which we review on this page.

The national strategy to protect integrity and combat corruption

Corruption is a complex concept with multiple dimensions, and its definitions differ according to the angle through which it is viewed. It is considered corruption every behavior that violates any of the rules and controls imposed by the system. It is also considered corruption every behavior that threatens the public interest, as well as any misuse of public office to achieve private gains. This is in Positive law As for Islamic law, corruption is everything that is against righteousness. The Almighty said: {And do not mischief in the land after it has been reformed} (Surah Al-A’raf) (56) And the Almighty said: {God commands you to return the trusts to their owners, and when you judge between people, you judge with justice. Indeed, God is a bounty. He admonishes you with it that God is All-Hearing, All-Seeing.} (Surah Al-Nisa) (58)

And in Sahih Muslim, the Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said: “God does not seek the help of a slave over a subject who dies when he dies deceiving her, except that God forbids him to enter Paradise.” Imam Ahmad narrated on the authority of Thawban, who said, “The Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, cursed the bribe-taker, the bribe-taker, and the bribe-taker, meaning the one who walks between them.” The phenomenon of corruption includes multiple crimes such as: bribery and influence trading, abuse of power, illegal enrichment, manipulation, embezzlement, waste or misuse of public money, money laundering, accounting crimes, counterfeiting, counterfeiting currency, commercial fraud...etc. The experiences of countries of different levels of economic development or their political system indicate that corruption is not linked to a specific political system, but rather appears when conditions are conducive to its emergence, and is found in different and disparate forms in all political systems. Corruption is an international phenomenon and a factor of concern for the international community. The phenomenon of corruption is a complex phenomenon in which economic, social, cultural and political dimensions are mixed. Therefore, there are many reasons for its emergence. Among these reasons is the inconsistency of regulations and the requirements of social life, and the weakness of oversight. Corruption has multiple negative effects, the most important of which is the negative impact on the development process, as it deviates from its objectives, wastes resources and capabilities, misdirects and impedes its progress, as well as weakens the effectiveness and efficiency of the agencies, and causes a state of discontent and anxiety.
