DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Saudi media are reporting that 95 people are still being held by authorities in a purported anti-corruption campaign that was launched nearly three months ago by the kingdom's influential crown prince.

A Saudi infographic shared on social media says that detainees who have not agreed on financial settlements to close their case will soon be referred to the Public Prosecution for trial.

Billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is reportedly among those still being held since early November when Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the stunning arrests of top princes, businessmen and officials.

State-linked Sabq news website on Wednesday quoted Attorney General Saud al-Mojeb saying 90 detainees have been released after agreeing to settlements involving cash, real estate and other assets.
