American company oversees the torture of Saudi princes
BAGHDAD (Reuters) -
The British newspaper The Daily Mail reported on Friday that Blackwater has overseen torture of Saudi princes.
"The torture of Saudi businessmen and princes is done by hanging them upside down and beaten by a US security company," the newspaper said in its report, The Journal News. The princes were arrested during corruption investigations by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the detainees were subjected to several interrogation procedures by a US company made up of a mercenary group, now working under the 32-year-old Saudi prince.
"Their detention includes all kinds of torture, such as slapping, beatings, and humiliation, in order to destroy them mentally and physically. The company's name was mentioned earlier by the Lebanese president, who claimed the existence of mercenaries in Saudi Arabia. While the company denied its relationship with previous events, rejecting allegations of its presence in Saudi Arabia.
The newspaper revealed the Saudi Crown Prince's seizure of nearly $ 194 billion from the accounts of the detained bank princes, along with some of their personal property. Among those who were suspended upside down, the most wealthy detainees were Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, who asked to meet Mohammed bin Salman personally.
The source said that Mohammed bin Salman's choice of American mercenaries instead of Saudi officers was the lack of confidence of the crown prince in greeting and praising the names of princes when they passed in the past. He was gently interrogated by Ben Salman after he left, ordering the mercenaries to complete the torture.
At the end of the report, the newspaper noted that the use of the Crown Prince of all methods of fear and torture to impose his authority, will not increase the strength and influence in Saudi Arabia, or the Arab world.http://www.aljournal.com/%D8%B4%D8%B1%D9%83%D8%A9-%D8%A7%D9%85%D9%8A%D8%B1%D9%83%D9%8A%D8%A9-%D8%AA%D8%B4%D8%B1%D9%81-%D8%B9%D9%84%D9%89-%D8%B9%D9%85%D9%84%D9%8A%D8%A9-%D8%AA%D8%B9%D8%B0%D9%8A%D8%A8-%D8%A7%D9%85%D8%B1%D8%A7/
