Saudi Arabia is winding down an unprecedented and controversial anti-corruption drive that led to dozens of princes and billionaires being detained at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Riyadh. Talks with suspects are expected to be completed by the end of the month and authorities will likely recover more than $100 billion in settlements, a senior official said, asking not to be identified because the details are private.Authorities have already agreed to drop charges against about 90 suspects who were released, Attorney General Sheikh Saud al-Mojeb said in a separate interview at the Ritz-Carlton late Sunday.About 95 people were still at the hotel, including five weighing settlement proposals, with the others reviewing evidence presented against them, he said.Mojeb denied the suspects' rights were violated.
