It reads like a thriller and if it’s proven true, it will leave your blood running cold.
A bombshell dropped yesterday in a Washington courtroom by a former high level official in Saudi Arabia who now lives in exile in Canada. The explosive accusations include sending a Saudi hit squad to Canada to try and kill him. Jabri also maintains he has been bombarded with text threats from Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and members of his family have disappeared with no contact. Jabri points the finger of blame at the Crown Prince for the 2018 murder of Washington Post, columnist, Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey.
Canada and Saudi Arabia have had a difficult relationship. When Foreign Affairs Minister Christia Freeland tweeted out concern for human rights, the reaction was explosive. While Canada wags its fingers at human rights abuses, it turns around and sells the Kingdom weapons and military equipment, in addition to delivering its own injustices to aboriginal communities within its border.
