Al Haramain Watch: Major Corruption in the Black Market for the Purchase of Hajj Visas and Rental of Hotels and Residences

The International Commission to Watch Saudi Administration of Muslim places “Al Haramain Watch”  said that the Hajj season began and the brokers began their usual work in selling Hajj visas. The Commission has identified a large number of systematic corruption that is under consideration and approval of the Saudi government such as bribery, extortion, favoritism and monopoly. . The agency revealed that brokers of princes and royal family began to work on the black market in Saudi Arabia from now to raise prices and exploit and blackmail pilgrimage missions in the Arab countries and Africa. These missions have to pay bribes to princes and influential in Saudi Arabia in order to obtain more visas for Hajj and rental of housing and hotels distinctive for pilgrims.

Al Haramain Watch has earlier received statements from Arab and African pilgrimage missions that sought early to rent homes and hotels to their pilgrims, and reported that they were subjected to large blackmail and requests for bribes by some employees of Saudi embassies in those countries or some princes inside Saudi Arabia, last year.

The international body held the Saudi government the full responsibility for all the corruption committed during the Hajj season every year, asking the Islamic countries and governments to intervene quickly in the management of Hajj and Umrah to ensure transparency and integrity in the management of this important file for all Muslims in the world.

Al Haramain Watch aims to ensure that Saudi Arabia manages the two holy mosques and Islamic sites in a proper manner that preserves the past and the present image of Islam. The commission will apply this aim by advising Riyadh through an Islamic advisory board, engaging Muslim countries in managing the holy rituals, and stopping the obliteration of Islamic identity in Mecca and Medina, which is carried out by Saudi Arabia through the unlimited urban expansion that destroyed many of these sites and eliminated the Islamic presence in them.

The commission will also prevent the Saudi Arabia singling out the decision over the holy rituals, which may affect the safety of pilgrims and Umrah.  It also aims to prevent the unconvincing closure of rituals such as visiting dignitaries or celebrities or guests of Saudi Arabia. In addition, it will monitor any violation of Saudi Arabia to any pilgrim during his visit to the holy sites. Finally, it will ensure a fair distribution of Hajj and Umrah quotas on Muslim countries without any favouritism or mediation.

The International Commission to Watch Saudi Administration of Muslim places “Al Haramain Watch” is a global organization that monitors the ways and means of Saudi Arabia’s administration of the holy sites in Mecca and Medina, especially the Haramain, including the Islamic historical sites in the Kingdom. The Commission’s work is based on an Islamic reference, and is keen on the interests of Muslims from the ocean to the Gulf and all areas of Islamic presence.
