The famous Twitter user Mujtahidd revealed that Ahmed bin Abdulaziz arrived in the capital Riyadh after months of his stay outside the Kingdom.
Mujtahidd mentioned that Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman was welcoming his uncle “but without cameras or protocol.”
عاجل: أحمد بن عبد العزيز يصل الرياض قبيل فجر اليوم الثلاثاء ومحمد بن سلمان في استقباله لكن دون كاميرات ولا بروتوكول
حصل أحمد على تعهدات أمريكية أوربية أن ابن سلمان لن يتعرض له، لكن من يضمن التزام ابن سلمان بالتعهد؟

Mujtahidd added that Prince Ahmed, King Salman’s brother, has obtained US and European commitments that bin Salman will not pursue him.
Mujtahidd wondered: “But who guarantees that bin Salman would adhere to the pledge?”
Rumours have been circulating over the past period about the situation of Prince Ahmed, and the possibility of his declaration of opposition to the current regime’s policies from outside the Kingdom.
During his stay at a European residence, Prince Ahmed talked to Saudi oppositionists, telling them that the king and his crown prince are responsible for the Yemeni war crisis, which prompted the government to issue an explanation on his behalf via the official news agency.
