His Majesty Sultan Qaboos just issued (yet) another Royal decree just now announcing the appointment of Hassan bin Mohsin Al Shariqi as Inspector General of Police and Customs. So, that means my speculation and the rumors from last week were true; Lt Gen Malik bin Sulaiman Al Mamari, Former Inspector General of Police and Customs is out. This is huge news. I know many protesters were demanding his removal. We saw plenty of him on Oman TV during Cyclone Gonu and Phet, but besides that I don't know much about him. Is he too being accused of corruption?
