Whistleblower Reveals Drug Addiction of Saudi Crown Prince



Saudi whistleblower Mujtahid, who is believed to be a member of or have a well-connected source in the royal family, revealed that the country’s Crown Prince Muhammad bin Nayef is addicted to narcotics.

“Muhammad bin Nayef is addicted to drugs and has been treated several times in Europe when his father was alive,” Mujtahid wrote on his tweeter page on Monday.

He also said that the al-Saud family is under the influence of major drug cartels.

“What is announced about discovering and seizing drugs in Saudi Arabia is less than 10 percent of the real amount of narcotics trafficked into the country because most of the drug traffickers enjoy immunity in Saudi Arabia,” Mujtahid said.

Every two days, on average, the Saudi government executes someone for drug-related offenses — while its own princes are caught in airports with tons of drugs.

Saudi prince Abdel Mohsen bin Walid bin Abdulaziz was caught in an airport in Lebanon last October with over two tons of drugs.

Lebanese security found 40 suitcases full of more than 4,000 pounds of amphetamine pills and cocaine on the prince’s private plane, which was on its way to Saudi capital city Riyadh. It was the largest smuggling operation ever foiled by Beirut International Airport security.

In fact, just hours after the Saudi prince was caught with thousands of pounds of drugs, a Pakistani drug smuggler was executed by the Saudi government.

Roughly half (47 percent) of people executed in Saudi Arabia are killed for drug-related offenses, according to Amnesty International. From August 2014 to August 2015, Amnesty documented 175 Saudi executions, an average of one every two days.
