Saudi prince executed for murdering a fellow citizen

The Ministry of Interior said Prince Turki bin Saud bin Turki bin Saud Al-Kabeer was executed on Tuesday in Riyadh for killing Adel bin Suleiman bin Abdulkareem Al-Muhaimeed, a fellow Saudi citizen, as reported by Arab News.

According to a ministry statement, the prince shot to death Al-Muhaimeed during a mass brawl in 2012.

The ministry said security officers arrested the offender and after a series of investigations charged him with murder.

The case was referred to the General Court, which convicted him of the charges brought against him and sentenced him to death. The ruling was supported by the Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court, and a royal decree was issued to carry out the ruling.

The Ministry of Interior said the penalty confirms the keenness of the government to ensure security, justice and safety for all.
