*Who was behind the smuggling of oil products to Europe?
A big question remained Thawaya in private conversations about who was behind the smuggling of oil products to Europe via the King Fahd Industrial Port in Yanbu on the Red Sea Coast, and extends to another question about the key to continuing the process of smuggling more than eleven years old. But what is the most important of all, the question about what the role of the senior princes of the royal family in this process, especially since the transactions are in a vital area is difficult, but impossible to exit the control of the king and senior princes, namely, the oil field.
Oil derivatives obtained by the company involved in the smuggling operations (zero), a subsidiary of Zainal, chaired by entertained Zainal from Aramco are below the world price by up to 90%, and sells these derivatives such as kerosene in the global markets directly in accordance with pricing world, a process in place effect for nearly a decade and a half.
The family of Zainal known historically and commercially be associated with the royal family, and wing mso particular. Insiders file on the smuggling of oil derivatives say that the issue was no longer a secret, and subject to investigation only because they reached the degree of the scandal, which prompted King Abdullah to intervene personally to prevent the outbreak of a Pandora's box full of terrible secrets.
Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi was committed to remain silent throughout the first phase of the scandal, and still silent until the preparation of this report, the suspicious silence in any case, especially when the long silence up to more than a decade. On 11 February, the newspaper (Okaz) for the smuggling of oil derivatives from King Fahd Industrial Port in Yanbu to France and other European countries for more than eleven years, was issued at the time an official statement explains the circumstances of the case, and explains the fact what happened, although the novel reported that the FBI demonstrated the involvement of the administrative owner of the company and ten other employees working for companies in the petrochemical sector, in the smuggling operations. On 18 February, published the same newspaper published an article by Dr. Hamoud Al Bou Taleb entitled (simple .. 11 years old smuggling!) Reads as follows: (smuggling plate, cans, petrol or kerosene, or even a few drums across the border and rugged, the question can be understood and can be considered in the normal range .. but the smuggling of oil for 11 years from an industrial port government employs hundreds of staff and by hundreds of guards, it is a difficult problem to understand and difficult to pass easily ..).
And attached Bou Taleb on Tomb of the Spokesman for Customs Saudi Arabia over the attempts to smuggle oil, supported through the ports, sea and land, and it dealt with within the crimes of the customs system, and address in accordance with the Uniform Customs and say (this is understandable, Mr. Spokesman when they occur in different places and in small quantities, but to do so a large company and issued Mehrbadtha to European countries for 11 years, then you say it is circumvented in the quality of fluid transferred from the reservoirs of oil to tankers bound for overseas, in what you say this simplistic and frightening what happened ..), and adds (11-year-O our brothers and not 11 days or a month, was this is the night does not censor or control it, no one knows what ever happen ..). And go (repeat and say, petroleum derivatives and not materials that could be smuggled in among the folds of clothing or on donkeys or in cars known smuggling routes. It ships sailing the sea to fill their tanks with tons of petroleum products, and leave our territorial waters to Europe and the other for 11 years, can (gulp) this issue simply??). And the development of Bou Taleb exclamation points at the end of the news reported in the (Okaz) in the earlier article, about adjusting detective administrative smuggling after tracking the movement of commercial traffic to the company, and discovered, allegedly, they use the trick is in the shipment of oil in barrels of oil cars consumers and are re- exported to foreign companies to re-refining in the areas of industrial, commented amusingly, together with a range questions (followed for 11 years!!! and the smuggling of oil from the port of government?? and justify that simple?? What say you people ???).
Dr Salim bin Ahmed Sahab wrote an article in the newspaper (the city) on 21 February entitled (theft in broad daylight!), Which was: the story of other corruption, and even a major, and before the eyes of more than a government together .. Corruption is not true .. Not exercised by the individual traitor, varmint or venal, or thief and scruffy, but a contractor formally with the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources. Proverb says: (protector Haramiha), and the owner of the company's ideals applied literally, it is not indifferent to your customs control and management of the port, but it came to the legalization of theft through the pipes in front of the ICE (eyes, my administrator). The director of King Fahd Industrial Port in Yanbu that (the thieves) have set up huge pipelines for the smuggling of oil from the tank company in the port to stretchers marine sail to France and other European countries, Vtabieha there and grab the price of the deposited mostly in European banks classified and unclassified. Question: Is oil wealth does not know him loose one? Does the Customs Department (Naimp in honey)? Is the port administration turned a blind eye grounds (mu my job) or (in 60 artful).
Interestingly, the port manager who was on leave and may still, he does not have an answer (finally), the answer is still unknown, but is known is that there is a corrupt hitter somewhere in the industrial port range but does not know God and firmly grounded in corruption. There is another case before the loser of the bet, some are betting that the stakeholders will be open (red eye) to (thieves), and Stvdham and defamed them and (Khachehem curse), and put the full facts in front of the Saudi people noble.
The winner of the bet, it is compared to one million rials in cash, except, that nothing of the facts will show, Valsaid is the extreme secrecy and concern for the reputation of the great thief, and not the small port on the Grand National and the micro-citizen. One last question I put to the Ministry of Oil: Is the quantities of oil in bulk to such a degree? Alice knows exactly how much is pumped into the tanks and then shipped km at sea!! We are not talking about stealing a hundred or two hundred barrels, but thousands or tens of thousands, and over 11 years of perfection and fullness! Please advise us of God have mercy!! But ye, thieves, then you have from God what you deserve!).
Comment and one representing the consensus of people in this country that theft is not an individual, not by the ordinary people, they must be stealing from people who would regale immunity, authority and extensive, and there is the king and princes. He tried to Abdel Aziz Sweden to approach him when he spoke in an article for the newspaper Al-Hayat about the existence (and mediators in the case), but wonder all lies in the absence of any sound of the General Auditing Bureau and the Oversight and Investigations and the Shura Council (in the case must be investigated by the specialized ) says Sweden. And gives the flavor of cynicism on the silence of the institutions concerned and says (not one of them held a press conference or issue a statement of respect for the homeland and the citizen and their rights. Intended to diversify income sources by income home with no income a family company or a foreign investor).
Who is the family business and who is the foreign investor, this is called the majority of citizens to answer for, and to take deterrent measures, but because 11 years of smuggling with impunity, because the base protector Haramiha is the ruling, is expected from the former King Fahd, or the current King Abdullah that issue a royal order to investigate all those involved in the smuggling operations, without exception?! Therefore seem all the questions are legitimate, including the question of the absence of Investigation Management for 11 years, and why, even after finding that the case did not make any of the Minister of Commerce, oil or any official to resign even if the seal royal decree (upon request), or (for health reasons ), to ward off embarrassment.
After five months on raising the issue of oil smuggling in local newspapers, and especially Western (Okaz and the city in particular), was formed, according to the newspaper on 12 July, a committee composed of six government agencies have opened an investigation into the issue of oil smuggling as it confirmed that the company smuggled oil proceeded to buy surplus oil from Saudi Aramco for a nominal fee, provided the use of national products; aromatic solvents and paints. The source pointed out that the results came out where the new committee, consisting of the Ministry of Interior, Intelligence Management, the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Department of Customs, Ports Authority, and Saudi Aramco, which included that the company resorted to the smuggling of oil surplus, which has pledged to use in national products, and exported to European countries that oil consumer.
What is surprising is the language of the resolution issued by the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Saudi Arabia, who used words (urgent decision), where this comes after 11 years of involvement of a company (zero). According to the news of the suspension of the company, the port administration reneged on any responsibility for the smuggling of oil, loaded with the Customs Department's responsibility, it reached the degree of transfer of oil from the tank company located just outside the port-to-carrier Navy directly, through huge pipelines, without the need for drums or any other means of transport.
Company zero headed by Khalid Zainal which belong to the group Zainal Industrial, one of the companies have (Alujain), and (cables), and (Cisco), and is zero purchase of petroleum derivatives such as kerosene and Alqaz and other Aramco are manufactured as products petrochemical intervention in Snaat multiple red like ointment: and solvents, pesticides and labels and inks etc .... Country sells products at very low prices, and what happened that the company has zero to sell the products received from Saudi Aramco directly from the global market and are made without any thing in exposing the fraud, so that made profits by 80% without any significant effort.
The scandal is not what happened in 11 years, but was disclosed by a decision of the Council of Ministers decided the issue of the company (zero Petrochemical), provides Alaqraraly the Ministry of Commerce to correct those violations taken by the Ministry of Trade and Industry regarding allowing the company to zero Petrochemical purchase petroleum products on production of the domestic market , and used as feedstock for the manufacture of their products, backed by the local price, as well as to inform the company that there are no restrictions or a ban on the purchase of petroleum products from the local market and used as feedstock in contrast to previous orders of the Organization for that matter).
This decision quiet and soft that only once the wrongdoing is corrected, ie, stop the sale of zero petroleum products especially production of the domestic market and used as feedstock to manufacture its products at a price local, reveals that the issue is not affiliated with zero and its Director Khalid Zainal, has sent a resolution issued in this regard a question significant and serious: find Zainal from behind? According to one comment (No creature in the country has such firms without a partnership princes
