Saudi Arabia: Prince executed for murder

A statement from Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Interior has confirmed on Tuesday it has carried out the execution orders on Prince Turki bin Saud al-Kabir.

The prince was found guilty three years ago by a Saudi court for murdering a young Saudi man following a group fight in al-Thumama region in the outskirts of Riyadh.

The statement said that “Turki bin Saud al-Kabir killed Saudi citizen Adel bin Suleiman bin Abdul Karim Mohaimeed.”

The statement added that “authorities were able to arrest the above mentioned offender. After the investigations, they charged him of committing the crime and his indictment was sent to the General Court. He was charged with what was attributed to him and sentenced to death as retribution.”

The Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court both agreed on the indictment. A Royal Decree was issued for the implementation of the court’s rule.

The victim’s family refused offers of ‘blood money’ and demanded justice be carried out.

The statement added that the Interior Ministry confirmed “King Salman’s keenness on enforcement of security, justice and God’s judgments.”

It also warned “that legitimate punishment would be the fate of whoever tries to assault innocent people and shed their blood”…. see more
