Will Bin Salman Do It and Execute the Two Saudi Princes?

In his tweet on Twitter, Rifaat suggested that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman would execute the two princes as a preemptive step for the administration of US President-elect Joe Biden so that it would not find a replacement for him, he said.
Refaat added that the transfer of the two princes coincided with the transfer of the case of the activist Loujain al-Hathloul to a court specialized in combating terrorism.
It is noteworthy that the British “Middle East Eye” website reported that a group of British MPs and lawyers had launched an investigation into the case of two high-ranking Saudi princes who have been imprisoned in the Kingdom for six months.
Former Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, 61, and Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz, 78, both considered potential competitors to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, were arrested last March during a crackdown on senior members of the royal family.
Shortly after their arrest, reports surfaced of their arrest on charges of plotting to overthrow Mohammed bin Salman before his ascension to the throne, but some sources of reports later retracted, saying that they were arrested due to “accumulating misconduct.”
It is not yet known if formal charges have been brought against either of the princes, and few details have emerged about their whereabouts or circumstances, although lawyers representing Bin Nayef have expressed in recent weeks their concerns about the prince’s health and safety.
And at the beginning of this month, the official news agency reported that Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman congratulated the US President-elect Joe Biden and his deputy, Kamala Harris, for winning the presidential elections.
For its part, Foreign Policy magazine said, “Mohammed bin Salman wagered heavily on the re-election of Donald Trump when he tacitly approved the decision of his Emirati counterpart Mohammed bin Zayed to sign a “normalization” agreement with ‘Israel.’ The Saudi, who came at the expense of insulting Islamic sentiments on the global level, will make him appear more isolated. “
