By inviting Mohammad bin Salman to the UK, Theresa May has made a mockery of democracy
On Sunday, the Kingdom established anti-corruption units to investigate cases in the future.
Prince Mohammed has wanted to list the company in NY as well, although Saudi officials have expressed concern about scrutiny from USA regulators.
"The United Kingdom's Department for International Development has come under fire from the aid sector for signing a 100 million British pound ($138.45 million) aid partnership with Saudi Arabia's development arm".
Financial advisers and associates of the detainees have told the New York Times that numerous assets of those detained have yet to be seized and most of those already seized are domestic real estate and shares of companies that could take years to liquidate.
Prince Mohammed and his father, King Salman, have sought to tighten their grip at home - consolidating powers that were once shared among an extended royal family.
The announcement comes as a New York Times report has suggested that numerous assets of the 381 princes, ministers and tycoons have yet to be seized while more than a dozen of the detainees were abused while they were held.
The biggest problem for the Saudi royal family in the wake of the crackdown - especially as it seeks deeper US investment ties - may be the complete secrecy surrounding how it was carried out.
The majority of the 381 people held have been released, but many now wear ankle bracelets that track their movements and can not gain access to their bank accounts, according to the Times.
Like other reports, the Times investigation has also been refuted by Riyadh, while maintaining that "the investigations, led by the Attorney General, were conducted in full accordance to Saudi laws".
Crown Prince Mohammed has fashioned himself into something of a renaissance man in the conservative Sunni Muslim kingdom, ushering in a series of social reforms in recent months.
To leave the Ritz, numerous detainees not only surrendered huge sums of money, but also signed over to the government control of precious real estate and shares of their companies - all outside any clear legal process.
The purge, launched in early November 2017, arrested 11 princes as well as government ministers and wealthy businessmen, who were then held in the Ritz Carlton in Riyadh. But there were no trials, and the details remain a mystery. Prince Mohammed is aiming to have half of Saudi military procurement done locally by 2030, from about 2 percent now.
