The Royal Court counsel, Saud al-Qahtani, confirmed the validity of the leaks about former Emir of Qatar Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani and Prime Minister Hamad bin Jaber bin Jassem al-Thani with the late Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi, in which they conspired against Saudi Arabia and its leaders.

He clarified that the former Qatar Emir and his prime minister tried to spread confusion about the leaks, but after they were confronted with the facts, they were obliged to admit that they conspired in front of the other leaders of the GCC, asking to start a new phase and to forget about the past, considering it as a mistake. Following this, the former Emir handed over the authority to his son, the current Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.

Qahtani pointed out that the conspiratorial leaks were the main reason behind the former Emir’s resignation, adding that Qatari officials paid billions to get rid of Gadhafi and sent a special squad to carry out the mission.

“What has not been published about the former Emir of Qatar and his prime minister goes beyond imagination,” the Royal Court counsel said.  

Thousands of fake accounts 

In a related context, the Royal Court counsel wrote on his official Twitter account the summary of a new research by Saudi researchers on fake social media accounts, where he reported that 8,000 accounts were created during the past two weeks at the rate of 557 accounts per day to attack Saudi Arabia, UAE, and some Arab countries, and stir up disputes and problems at Saudi Arabia with fake Saudi names, and to glorify the current Qatar Emir.

According to the study, the fake accounts direct followers to participate in the most widespread hate campaigns, promoting offensive hashtags against Saudi Arabia.
