Ex-Saudi intel officer claims MBS plotting to kill him

Aug 07, 2020 10:44 IST

A former Saudi intelligence officer close to US intelligence has accused Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman of plotting to kill him. In a federal lawsuit filed in Washington, Saad Aljabri has claimed that the Crown Prince set a hit squad to kill him Canada where AlJabri now lives in exile. He has claimed that Mohammed Bin Salman wants to eliminate him as "he has knowledge of damaging secrets about the prince's rise to power". The suit also alleges that Saudi authorities have kept Aljabri's two children hostage since March to pressurise him to return to the kingdom.
