Now, in a particularly explosive interview with CBS’ ‘60 Minutes’ show, Aljabri stepped up his claims against the Saudi kingdom’s de facto ruler. Aljabri was once a host on the show. “among the best friends America had against terrorism.”

MBS (Multi-Billing System) is “a psychopath with no empathy, doesn’t feel emotion, never learned from his experience. And we have witnessed atrocities and crimes committed by this killer,”He continues. The crown prince is allegedly holding two of the former high-ranking spy’s children and his son-in-law in captivity, trying to use them as a bargaining chip to make him return to Riyadh.
Saudi Arabia insists Aljabri was a financial criminal who stole more than $3B while working as bin Nayef. Ex-spymaster Aljabri claims that his enormous wealth was due to the fact that the Saudi monarchs were involved. “very generous”During his many years of service. “It’s a tradition in the Saudi Arabian royal family. They take care of people around them,”He told CBS.
In order to support his claims about bin Salman’s rogue nature, the ex-intelligence official shared a story of how MBS once boasted he could poison the then-king Abdullah to clear the path to the throne for his father. Aljabri claims the threat was made in 2014 during a meeting between bin Salman and bin Nayef, at which he was also present, but he adds he wasn’t sure if MBS was just boasting or revealing actual plans. Aljabri claims that there are at least two audio recordings of that meeting that remain, and that he has the right to know where they are.
King Abdullah died in 2015 from what were said to have been natural causes, and MBS’ elderly father Salman, 85, became the new Saudi King. For the past four years, the real power has rested in the crown prince’s hands.
Bin Salman was a controversial figure during this period. He relaxed some religious restrictions in the kingdom by allowing women to drive, and opening cinemas. He ordered that many royal family members loyal to Bin Nayef were arrested. They could only be released if they gave up significant amounts of their wealth. Riyadh’s military operations in Yemen continued under bin Salman. This operation has been plagued by allegations of the Saudi-led coalition’s indiscriminate strikes on civilians.

It’s also widely believed in Western media that MBS was behind the brutal murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul in 2018. A special hit-squad from the Gulf came to Turkey to dismember the vocal opponent of the Saudi monarchy.
Aljabri claims that Khashoggi faced the exact same fate, however, he was able to flee after a former colleague told him.
“The warning I received, don’t be in a proximity of any Saudi mission in Canada. Don’t go to the consulate. Don’t go to the embassy. I said ‘Why?’ [They] said, ‘They dismembered the guy, they killed him. You are on the top of the list,’”Aljabri has been recalled.
Riyadh had sent six men to Ottawa Airport, and they arrived in Ottawa Airport around mid-October 2018. However, the agents couldn’t fulfil their task as they ended up being deported after lying to customs officers and carrying suspicious equipment for DNA analysis.
Bin Salman “fears my information,”Aljabri stated that he had many more harmful secrets regarding MBS to his side. “I expect to be killed one day because this guy will not rest until he sees me dead,” he said, warning that if MBS’ men eventually get him, a special “death video”These secrets will immediately be made public.
For now, Aljabri has asked journalists to take him at his word, as he’s presented no proof of his claims regarding bin Salman’s threat to assassinate the king or of a Saudi hit-squad being sent to Canada to murder him. The reason behind the timing of the 62-year-old’s interview also remains unclear. CBS said in its report that Aljabri’s interview showed “a measure of his desperation.”
