Purge by Saudi Arabia’s King Salman sees former Euro Disney rescuer HRH Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal arrested.

Former Euro Disney S.C.A. shareholder HRH Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, has been arrested today for corruption and money laundering charges in what appears to be a purge by Saudi Arabia’s King Salman.

The Prince saved Disneyland Paris from bankruptcy and closure in 1994 when the Kingdom Holding Company bought a 10% stake in Euro Disney.  He also took part in several further recapitalisations and cash tender offers of the loss making resort, the most recent in 2014 before selling his shares to The Walt Disney Company this summer.

King Salman removed a host of prominent officials in a sweeping crackdown on Saturday.  Billionaire HRH Al-Waleed bin Talal, a member of the royal Saudi family, and one of the biggest shareholders of The Walt Disney Company, Citi Group, News Corp, Apple, and Twitter along with ten other senior princes, and some 38 ministers, were arrested on orders from the new anti-corruption committee headed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Saudi news outlets, including Al Arabiya, reported Al-Waleed bin Talal, was among those arrested.

In 2015, Bin Talal announced he would donate his entire fortune to help build a “better world of tolerance, acceptance, equality and opportunity for all.”
