USA/SAUDI ARABIA – MBS denies sending hit squad to kill former Saudi spy in Canada (Al Jazeera)

Lawyers for Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman (MBS) on Monday evening filed a motion to dismiss a lawsuit against him, saying there is no evidence to support claims he ordered a hit squad to assassinate a former Saudi intelligence official and that he is immune from charges in a US court.

The 106-page lawsuit (PDF) was filed in August on behalf of Saad al-Jabri, an exiled former aide to former Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, a former heir to the Saudi throne who was overthrown in a 2017 palace coup that left MBS as the country’s de-facto ruler.
