US District Judge Timothy Kelly decided that the files should be available for use by Al-Jabri, according to the agency. Bloomberg.
Al-Jabri was presented legal complaint Before a US court in August 2020, he said that a team of Saudi agents, known as the “Tiger Squad”, tried to liquidate him in Toronto, by order of the Crown Prince, on October 15, 2018.
An analysis published by the American newspaper “Washington Post” concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is facing “a series of legal and diplomatic setbacks” that could undermine his legal case against former security official Saad Al-Jabri in the United States.
In the lawsuit, Al-Jabri said that one of the reasons for Mohammed bin Salman’s desire to get rid of him is that he provided intelligence to the CIA about the crown prince’s responsibility for the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in 2018.
In the ruling, Judge Kelly said the records facing potential destruction are important enough to this case that their loss would cause irreparable harm to the plaintiff.
Jabri says the airline’s records will show the movement of the would-be killers, making it crucial to the case.
Al-Jabri requested permission to call in the airlines for immediate access to the data, but Kelly said it was too early to do so.
Al-Jabri is suing the Saudi crown prince under the Torture Victims Protection Act and the Alien Tort Act, which give the US court system jurisdiction over cases involving certain types of crimes.
Over his decades of service in the Saudi government, Jabri said in the lawsuit, he became privy to sensitive information about “Prince Mohammed’s secret political plot within the royal court” as well as his business dealings and his role in forming a team of activists to kill Khashoggi.
The daughter of the former Saudi security official, Saad al-Jabri, said that the Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, is targeting her brother, sister, father and husband for a “personal vendetta”, denying what was stated in a recent Saudi embassy statement accusing her father of committing “financial crimes.”
And last October, in an interview with the “60 Minutes” program on CBS News, Al-Jabri, who coordinated between the kingdom’s intelligence services and Western governments, stated that he was targeted after fleeing the country following the appointment of Prince Mohammed bin Salman as crown prince in 2017.
He also said that Saudi authorities detained two of his eight children after he fled the kingdom.
