Ryadh’s Ritz-Carlton reopens after three months as “luxury jail”
For three months, the five-star Riyadh Ritz Carlton served as a gilded prison for hundreds of high-ranking princes, ministers and business tycoons who were accused of graft. On Monday, the gates were opened, and liveried staff welcomed guests to the $664 a night hotel and the police guards were gone. Many of the well-heeled prisoners were released in exchange for hefty “financial settlements.” The purge conducted by Crown Prince Muhammed Bin Salman is believed to have netted the Saudi treasury more than $100bn.
