Prince Al-Waleed’s Brother Khalid Re-Arrested on Orders on Mohammed bin Salman?

Khalid bin Talal – the brother of billionaire Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal has been reportedly re-arrested by Saudi Arabian authorities just days after their father died. According to Al-Quds Al-Arabi, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) ordered the arrest of Khalid bin Talal.

“The arrest took place on Tuesday night and until Wednesday evening Khaled was not released despite some promises,” the report said. Prince Khalid was freed in November after being detained for 11 months for criticising a crackdown on the kingdom’s elite that saw dozens of princes, officials and tycoons imprisoned at Riyadh’s Ritz-Carlton hotel.

Prince Khalid’s brother Al-Waleed, dubbed the Warren Buffett of Saudi Arabia, was among those rounded up and was released in early January after an undisclosed financial agreement with the government.

The development comes days after their father Prince Talal bin Abdul Aziz, a half-brother of King Salman, died.

Defiantly liberal and dubbed the “Red Prince”, Talal bin Abdul Aziz was known as a tireless advocate of reform, sometimes in defiance of the royal family.  He was a long-standing advocate of allowing Saudi women to drive, a right that was finally granted to female citizens this year.
