Crown prince chairs first meeting on reform of Saudi intelligence services

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman chaired the first meeting on Thursday of a special committee to reform Saudi Arabia’s intelligence services.

The restructuring was ordered by King Salman after the murder in Istanbul of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

According to Arab News, the committee “assessed the General Intelligence Presidency’s current organizational structure and identified any gaps in its legal framework, policies and procedures.”

The crown prince told the Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh on Wednesday “justice will prevail” in the Khashoggi case.

“The incident was very painful for all Saudis. It was a repulsive incident, and no one can justify it,” he said.
