Bahrain Mirror (Exclusive): It seems that many haven't yet understood the amount of money which brothers Ahmed and Salman Atiyatullah Al Khalifa stole from state funds.
Do you know, dear citizen, that the government allocated in the budget for the years 2023-2024 for housing projects an amount of 186 million, which is not even half of what the brothers Atiyatulah stole.
In the world, wealth is usually valued in dollars rather than local currencies, brothers Atiyatullah Al Khalifa stole 400 million dinars, amounting to more than 700 million US dollars.
The expenses of a ministry that includes thousands of employees such as the Ministry of Health during 2023 and 2024, including the salaries of all its employees, from the minister to consultants, doctors and nurses, reaching to the least paid employee, amount to 61 million and 330 thousand dinars only. That's not even half of what they stole.
The budget of the University of Bahrain and the Polytechnic College together for two years is 91 million, while the budget of the House of Representatives and the Shura Council for two years is 37 million dinars. The budget of the three ministries, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Labor and Ministry of Social Development, is only 104 million dinars for two years. In fact, the sum of what these two groups get, in addition to the two councils and the three ministries, is only half of what the two sheikhs who are close to the ruling family stole.
If the Atiyatullah brothers return what they stole to the state budget, its deficit will decrease from 569 million dinars and 610,000 dinars to only 169,610,000 dinars.
The total assets of the Future Generations Reserve Fund at the end of 2021 amounted to 234 million and 348 thousand dinars, all of which is slightly more than half of what the brothers Atiyattulah stole.
The assets of a huge fund such as the unemployment insurance fund which amounts to 542 million dinars are only slightly more than what these two sheikhs stole from the ruling family.
This theft has destroyed the country's finances, and weakened the pillars of its economy, as the amount is colossal, and it is not even all that the sheikhs have stolen. Unfortunately, Ahmed Atiyatullah and his brother will not be punished. The king and his sons may be angry with them, but they will not take them and their successors to the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Seef District to force them to accept a settlement by returning the amount of assets they own, as Saudi King Salman and his son did with the theives of the royal family there.
