The newspaper said the delay comes as the company struggles to arrive at a US$2 trillion (RM8 trillion) valuation sought by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Saudi Arabia is to establish specialised anti-corruption units to investigate embezzlement in the kingdom following the recent controversial crackdown that recouped more than US$1bn recouped from detained businessmen and politicians.

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. Then some, if not all, of their assets were seized.

The hugely influential Saudi prince is visiting Egypt, Britain and the United States as part of a long foreign trip, his first as crown prince. In order to be released, they had to agree to hand over very large sums of cash and assets-thought to be more than $100 billion combined.

Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, who recently was released after almost three months in detention as part of a so-called anti-corruption purge, reportedly does not have the permission to travel outside of the kingdom.

In November, Saudi Arabia launched an anti-corruption purge, arresting hundreds of the country's elite, including billionaires, government ministers, and royal family members. "Without any kind of transparency or rule of law, it makes investors nervous that their investments might be taken and that their Saudi partners might be detained without any rationale to the charges".

Bin Talal was freed in late January after he reached a financial settlement with the attorney general, said a Saudi official back then, without elaborating on the amount he had paid to secure his release. But there were no trials, and the details remain a mystery. He told CBS News that corruption in Saudi Arabia is much bigger than the clampdown by the crown prince addressed.

The Imam-e-Ka'aba was accompanied by Ambassador of Saudi Arabia Nawaf Saeed Al-Maliky and other Saudi dignitaries. "People has disappeared and been charged for tweets", he noted.
