After being informed that their demands to be exempted from paying the bills were rejected, the princes refused to leave the palace and, hence, the Royal Guard was ordered to intervene and detain them.

They are also demanding financial compensation after one of their cousins was given the death sentence for the unspecified crime.

In the statement it said, the princes were informed about the violation, but they refused to leave the site. Because of this, a Royal directive was issued to arrest them and being sent to Al-Hair prison while waiting for their trial.

The statement said, “We emphasize here that the royal directives are clear that all citizens are equal before the law, and those who fail to abide by the regulations and instructions will be held accountable whoever they are,” 

King Salman make sure that members of royal families will be held equally accountable before the law. He even approved the beheading of a prince that killed a member of the public.

Last year dozens of princes, as well as sitting ministers and ex-ministers, were arrested as part of an anti-corruption drive.
The number or Saudi Royal family are thousands but their wealth and status differentiate with each other.
