1min read

MORE than 400 private WhatsApp messages sent by Khashoggi last year to a fellow Saudi exile may offer fresh clues to the killing of the dissident journalist.

In his conversation with Canada-based activist Omar Abdulaziz – accessed by CNN – Khashoggi describes  Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi Crown Prince also known as MBS, as a “beast” and a “Pac-man” who would “devour all in his path, even his supporters”.

“Arrests are unjustified and do not serve him [logic says], but tyranny has no logic, but he loves force, oppression and needs to show them off. He is like a beast ‘Pac-Man’ the more victims he eats, the more he wants. I will not be surprised that the oppression will reach even those who are cheering him, then others and others and so on. God knows,” Khashoggi wrote.

The messages shared by Abdulaziz with CNN include voice recordings, photos, and videos. The conversation reveals the two were planning an online youth movement.

Abdulaziz believes the messages between him and Khashoggi were intercepted by Saudi authorities in August, two months before the journalist was killed by Saudi nationals inside the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul.

Abdulaziz said he plans to join a lawsuit against an Israeli company that reportedly invented the software to hack his phone.

He made strong claims saying that the phone’s hacking “played a major role in what happened to Jamal”.

“The guilt is killing me,” he said.
