Saudi Whistle-Blower Reveals MbS’ Plots against Father
Saudi whistle-blower Mujtahid, who is believed to be a member of or have a well-connected source in the royal family, disclosed that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has ordered doctors monitoring the King’s health conditions to speed up his death.
“He (bin Salman) has made his father busy with gambling and debauchery and has ordered his medical team to increase dozes of King Salman’s drugs so that he can ascend to the throne after his father’s death due to overdose of medicine,” Mujtahid wrote on his twitter page on Monday.
The whistle-blower added that he will inform people of the Saudi king’s health conditions as promised before.
A Saudi dissident figure had also last year revealed plots by the MbS to oust his father from ruling Saudi Arabia.
“Bin Salman intends to treat his father the same way he did in the case of former crown prince and his cousin Mohamed bin Nayef,” Sultan al-Abdoli al-Qamedi said.
He added that King Salman had grown weak and incapable of resisting against his son’s plans to take control of the royal palace and change the old guards.
“Bin Salman will not wait for his father to resign and will make him leave power anytime that he thinks is proper,” al-Qamedi said.
Also in 2018, sources close to the Saudi royal palace had revealed that the Saudi king had said in a private gathering that he did not feel any necessity for transition of power to the crown prince as he was still able to fulfill his responsibilities.
They added that the medical tests had, meantime, diagnosed King Salman with severe fatigue and respiratory problems.
