The claim was made in a lawsuit filed in the United States.
Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman allegedly sent a hit squad to Canada, in an attempt to kill a former top Saudi intelligence official who is also a Canadian permanent resident.
That’s the claim in a lawsuit filed at a US court.
According to the claim, bin Salman wanted to get rid of Saad Aljabri, who spent 39 years in the Saudi government. Aljabri worked in both counter-terrorism and national security, and knows a lot about bin Salman.
Apparently, Aljabri may have knowledge of bin Salman’s alleged creation of the Tiger Squad, who the lawsuit claims are behind the dismemberment of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
“Few places hold more sensitive, humiliating and damning information about defendant bin Salman than the mind and memory of Dr. Saad — except perhaps the recordings Dr. Saad made in anticipation of his killing,” said Aljabri in the suit. “That is why defendant bin Salman wants him dead, and why defendant bin Salman has worked to achieve that objective over the last three years.”
None of these allegations have been proven in court.
Aljabri now lives in Toronto, after fleeing Saudi Arabia in 2017.
The suit alleges that members of the Tiger Squad attempted to enter Canada in 2018, which the claim calls “a hit squad to North America to kill Dr. Saad.”
However, they were stopped at Toronto Pearson Airport when trying to enter the country, as suspicious border guards denied entry to all but one of them.
While that claimed attempt failed, the suit says “Bin Salman now plans to send agents directly through the United States to enter Canada by land and, once and for all, eliminate Dr. Saad.”
Additionally, Aljabri says two of his children “disappeared” in March, and other family members have been arrested and tortured.
