A former senior Saudi Arabia security official claimed in an interview that the kingdom’s crown prince once spoke of killing a sitting Saudi monarch before his own father was crowned king.
Saad Al-Jabri said that the crown prince would not stop until he saw the former official “dead”, because of the information he has. According to the 62-year old, the crown prince was “a psychopath and killer.”
Saad al Jabri was responsible for overseeing joint anti-terrorism efforts with America during his tenure. He has a unique perspective of global politics in the Middle East. Although he did not provide any evidence to support his claims, he provided specific details.

Al-Jabri claimed that Prince Mohammed Bin Salman boasted in 2014 that he could murder King Abdullah. According to Al-Jabri, he claimed that he recorded a video which revealed more royal secrets. This would have been released by him if he died.
“He told him, ‘I want to assassinate King Abdullah. Russia sends me a poison ring. It’s enough for me just to shake hand(s) with him and he will be done,’” Al-Jabri said, claiming that Saudi intelligence took the threat seriously.
At the time the crown prince had no leadership role and his father was the heir to the throne. Al-Jabri stated that the issue was dealt with within the royal family.
