Carl made it clear that Al-Jabri was a threat to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman because of his close relationship with former Crown Prince Muhammad bin Nayef.
Episode (18/7/2020) of the program "Beyond the News" asked about the reasons that explain Riyadh's insistence on pursuing al-Jabri and overlooked all possible consequences of trying to recover it, and the impact of this insistence on the image of the Saudi regime and the future of its cooperation with its Western allies in what is known as "terrorism" "?
The American newspaper "The Wall Street Journal" revealed in an investigation conducted by a difficult interpretation on the part of the Saudi regime to recover the former senior official in Saudi intelligence, who is currently in Canada, Saad al-Jabri.
The investigation confirmed that Riyadh tried to solicit Al-Jabri to Turkey, before issuing arrest warrants against him after the failure of this step, and imprisoned two of his sons in the month of March.
For his part, the author and political analyst Asad Bishara saw that the case of Saad al-Jabri is inseparable from what happened in the detention of princes and businessmen in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Riyadh, considering that it falls within the framework of the recovery of public funds for the Saudi treasury.
Bechara cited the publication of the Saudi newspaper Al-Sharq Al-Awsat for the content of the investigation of the American "Wall Street Journal", to indicate the approval of the Saudi authorities on what came in the investigation.
In contrast, Muhammad Mukhtar Al-Shanqeeti, professor of political ethics and history of religions at Hamad Bin Khalifa University, said that Saudi Arabia has huge financial corruption, noting that both Muhammad bin Salman and Saad Al-Jabri are not asceticized in money, and that each of them has money, in which what is legal is mixed Unlawful.
Al-Shanqeeti added that if Mohammed bin Salman - who bought a yacht for half a billion dollars, and a palace for a third of a billion dollars, and a plate for half a billion dollars - is the one who accuses Saad al-Jabri of financial corruption, then we must ask about the legal criteria for that.
Al-Shanqeeti also questioned the legal path and stages of litigation for the recovery of funds from the Ritz-Carlton detainees.
And he considered that the accountability boils down to being political blackmail under the title of financial corruption, carried out by Muhammad bin Salman to liquidate one of his main opponents, Muhammad bin Nayef.
He pointed out that considering Saad Al-Jabri as the right arm of Muhammad bin Nayef, the accusation is leveled against the latter in the first place.
