(CNN) — A group of 11 Saudi princes was arrested Thursday after staging a sit-in at a palace in Riyadh, the kingdom’s attorney general said Saturday.
The princes were protesting a recent royal order that "halted payments by the state to members of the royal family to cover their electricity and water utility bills," Sheikh Saud Al Mojeb said in a statement.
Saud Al Mojeb酋长在一份声明中指出：“这些王子抗议近期一项王室命令，即停止由国家为王室成员支付电费和水费。”
They also want compensation for the 2016 state execution of a cousin who was convicted of murder, the statement said.
Authorities had told the princes their demands were unlawful, but they refused to leave and public peace and order was disrupted, the attorney general said.
The princes were being detained at Al-Hayer prison south of Riyadh, the capital, pending trial.
"No one is above the law in Saudi Arabia. Everyone is equal and is treated the same as others," the statement said.
Two months ago, authorities arrested dozens of royals, businessmen and senior government officials as a part of a corruption crackdown. Those detained included the former head of the royal court, Khaled Al-Tuwaijri, and Saudi media mogul Waleed Al-Ibrahim.
两个月前，当局逮捕了几十名王室成员、商人和政府高官，以此作为打击腐败的一部分。那些被逮捕的人包括，皇家法院前院长Khaled Al-Tuwaijri和沙特媒体大亨Waleed Al-Ibrahim。
The investigation is being overseen by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who was appointed head of a new anti-corruption committee hours before the arrests began November 4.
王储Mohammed bin Salman正在视察该调查，在11月4日逮捕发生前的几个小时，他被任命为反腐委员会首长。
