Hundreds of princes, businessmen, scholars, preachers and activists were arrested.

The prisons were filled with detainees and detention centers, and this is the first time that a large number of women have been arrested for reasons related to freedom of opinion and human rights work.
The policy of marginalization, neglect and belittling of the people has not changed during the reign of King Salman and his son, who promotes openness and entertainment.
In fact, it is like the rest of the previous ruling eras in Saudi Arabia in terms of the mentality of tyranny and the marginalization of the disappeared people.
He is required in every era and authority to drum and glorify the policy of King Salman and his son, the Crown Prince.

Some of them are governmental, such as conducting marriage contracts, registering and extracting official papers for family members, or being able to obtain services such as a phone number or renting a car.
The arrests of some members of the ruling authorities because of the struggle for the throne of power, and others affected thousands of businessmen, with many justifications.
The real reason is to subjugate and weaken all figures in the country, and these are crimes against humanity and are committed under orders from the official government.
