Bin Salman Accused of Killing Political Opponent in Lebanon

News - Middle East: Saudi activist and dissident Manea Hamad Muhdal al-Yami was assassinated at dawn, Sunday, with several fatal stab wounds.

Saudi and Arab activists and media reported that the Saudi dissident, Mana' al-Yami, was stabbed in Lebanon by two of his brothers in coordination with the Saudi embassy in Beirut.

Writer and activist Alia Abu Nabaa Al-Hwaiti said in a series of tweets on Twitter: "Prince Muhammad bin Salman kills opponents with the complicity of his brothers who were also with him in the political movement, but changed their position after they went several times to the embassy." 

Alia added in another tweet that there are many videos proving that the killers were visiting the embassy several time, as well as a video of his murder. 

US intelligence agencies have concluded in a newly declassified intelligence report that Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, approved the 2018 murder of the Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi – but Washington stopped short of targeting the future Saudi king with financial or other sanctions.

Less than a month ago, Turkish court closed the case into the murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi days before Saudi Arabia's de facto ruler Mohammed bin Salman’s visit to the country, citing a set of legal reasons.

The Middle East Eye reported on Friday that Istanbul's 11th Heavy Penal Court closed the case on June 17, saying Saudi judicial authorities had already tried many of the suspects in the kingdom, making the Turkish trial unnecessary.

The Istanbul court noted that Riyadh Criminal Court's First Joint Chamber has said 10 of the 26 suspects had received sentences of up to 20 years in prison, adding that after inspecting the Turkish court dossier on the killing, it has decided that there was no fresh evidence to suggest the 11 remaining suspects should be retried. 

 

The Riyadh court also said the authorities could not establish any connection between the murder and the remaining four suspects who were also part of the joint Turkish-Saudi team to investigate the murder. 
The Istanbul court said it did not have the means and evidence to continue the trial under such circumstances since it could not listen to the testimony of the suspects.

It added that international legal principles and precedents suggest it should drop the case, since it doesn't have sufficient probable cause to continue against the remaining suspects - who have not been found guilty in Saudi courts. 

The latest development comes as Saudi crown prince Bin Salman, who is commonly referred to by his initials MBS, arrived in Ankara on Wednesday for the first time in years, where he is slated to hold talks with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

 

Turks' living standards are imploding one year before a general election that poses one of the biggest challenges to Erdogan's mercurial two-decade rule.

Turkey faces its worst economic crisis in two decades and is trying to draw investments from wealthy Arab states of the Persian Gulf region. It has also taken steps to improve relations with the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and the Israeli regime.
