Prince Salman bin Abdulaziz and his father are held in detention since January 2018.
After being detained for around a year in the high-security Al-Ha'ir prison near #Riyadh and later in a private villa with his father Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman, 2/
the prince, "who who apparently espoused no political ambitions" was "moved to a secret detention site in March, multiple sources told AFP."
"He was mysteriously returned to the villa last week to be reunited with his father, three of those sources said." 3/
"...his return may be a tentative sign that international pressure for his release is working."
who was putting pressure?
"A delegation from the #EuropeanParliament implored Saudi authorities to release detained royals including Prince Salman during a visit to #Riyadh in Feb." 4/
"Separately, leading Washington lobbyist Robert Stryk's Sonoran Policy Group signed a $2 million contract in May to advocate for the prince's release "with the governments of the #UnitedStates, #UK, #France, & the #EU", according to a US justice department filing seen by AFP." 5/
"A source described Mughal, a #Pakistani national, as the prince's former financial advisor who raised $2 million from his personal wealth and by tapping the influential royal's friends."

so, while world remains silent towards the fate of the #yemen, the worst #humanitarian #catastrophe worldwide, for the 6th year now trapped & bombed, meanwhile forced to handle #coronavirus, there is much effort of #US, #UK, #France & #Europe to free a prince.

this sucks.
