I was Yemen analyst Hisham Al on me see now a critic of Saudi Arabia’s human rights record , based in London has told the BBC that there , they have been put under police protection after they warned them of an imminent threat to their life. Police say they cannot comment on or confirm the case , which comes just over a month since the journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed by an alleged Saudi hit squad in Istanbul . The BBC has been investigating who may have been responsible BBC Arabic’s reader Al Maliki reports .
November 2000-17 the Saudi elite was gripped by panic. The Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered more than 200 princes businessmen and government officials to be detained at the luxury Ritz Carlton Hotel in Riyadh , it was described as an anti-corruption drive back then Mohamed bin Salman was talked off almost as a soldier Robin Hood , the BBC interview journalists Malka about the events .
I think we need a sorority should give him to bring vote of the doubt. But on the same time , it shouldn’t have to be discussed in a consultative body . Yes , we need to crush corruption but it is being done by one man rule .
How his concerns seem to be supported by the allegations. Emerging from the Ritz Carlton allegations that the detainees hadn’t just been stripped of their wealth , some had been tortured , but a secret informant inside the kingdom has told the BBC that has shocked his murder wasn’t the first killing to be carried out by people close to the Crown Prince . He says one man measure General Ali Al Khatami was beaten to death to preserve his anonymity . His words are voiced by an actor .
His into Ricky thought I hit him in the face with a club and he fell to the floor. They poured water on him , but he did not get up his heart stopped this information came from one of the best one guards .
We can’t independently verify his story but it tallies with at least 2 other accounts of what took place. Mahmoud Arafat , a lawyer who has worked for several princes also a long-standing critic of the Saudi regime says he heard about this killing from those close to General Al-Qahtani , he says the generals attackers believed he held damaging information about the Crown Prince and his circle . But if I had describes this secret information . As a black box .
And it’s rough I will if not V that he intended to kill this man because he was a black box for many things , and this is one of the theories about Jamaal killing that he was also a black box because of the long time association he had with the Al Saud family.
The BBC asked the Crown Prince‘s office where there Mohammed bin Salman had ever sanctioned torture and killing , they said. We categorically deny and reject these false claims which are completely baseless and untrue . The law guarantees defendants rights and prohibits subjecting the detainees to any harm the events at the Ritz Carlton revealed how Saudi Arabia carried out its anti-corruption drive , but what about those it’s regarded as political dissidents , according to a BBC source in Saudi Arabia . They were the targets of and also the unit of 50 officers formed in the summer of 2018 known as the Tiger team , the source says that the 15 men who carried out the hush obviously murder . Well , part of this unit . Dr. sad and 40 a well known critic of the Saudi leadership now living in London , claims to know about the Tigers team .
It was supposed to target and kill dissidents outside the country and inside the country out of the country , people in Canada. People in Europe . They will probably even in America on dissidence inside the country , people who the regime does not want force to be made about the analysts .
So the Arabia has stated that the operation was conducted by a team acting without the knowledge or authorization of the royal court , however , the soldiers themselves now say sold alcohol need trusted servant of Mohammed bin Salman heavily implicated in the Ritz Carlton abuses was one of those in charge of the team who killed shop obviously in Istanbul sold of look on the pressure short Uribe phone and text , according to friends of the journalists who have spoken to the BBC. The BBC has established that sold in Pakistan has not been back to his office since the death of casualty and so the media say he’s been fired . The Saudi government has told the BBC its investigation into how shocked if death will be thorough transparent and wide-ranging they go on . So the law enforcement officials are working with their Turkish counterpart to uncover the facts , and a number of individuals are currently in custody . So the Arabia is establishing robust mechanisms to ensure that such an abort incident can never be repeated a committee , chaired by His Royal Highness the Crown Prince will reform the General Intelligence presidency so the Arabia’s recent actions have attracted massive global attention most of its tight ironically Jamal has shortages death has subjected the Saudi government , and the man who runs it to the sort of scrutiny . Nothing he wrote could ever have achieved .
It was. BBC Arabic’s reader Al Marri reporting , you can hear more on this story on assignment on the BBC World Service .
