The arrest was ordered by a newly established anti-corruption committee headed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. He was released in January 2018.
Waleed’s brothers Khalid bin Ibrahim al Ibrahim and Abdul-Aziz bin Ibrahim al Ibrahim are also billionaires. SuperYachtFan was informed that either Khaled or Abdul-Aziz owns the Nobiskrug yacht Mogambo.
We did find some photos on the web, picturing Waleed bin Ibrahim visiting Mogambo. So maybe Waleed also owns Mogambo. (Update: Mogambo is now owned by Jan Koum) The late King Fahd was the owner of the Royal Yacht Prince Abdul Aziz.
