Mustafa AY – TDO - 29.11.2017 On Tuesday, Saudi Arabia made a statement concerning release of Senior Prince Miteb bin Abdullah from 3 weeks-lasting detainment with other royal family members. Miteb was in charge of National Guards. The rationale we might prevail for his detainment would be that he was the most prominent royal family member in case of succession to the throne. To be able to weaken his position in royal family, he was mistreated through detainment and indictment of corruption. King Salman, with these political maneuvers, tries to bring his Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to forefront as a successor to the throne.
