Group sues Crown Prince

PARIS – A rights group filed a lawsuit against Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman during his visit to France on Tuesday, accusing him of complicity in torture and inhumane treatment in Yemen, lawyers said.

The complaint on behalf of Taha Hussein Mohamed, director of the Legal Centre for Rights and Development (LCRD), said the prince who is Saudi Arabia’s defence minister was responsible for attacks that hit civilians in Yemen.

The case was filed in a Paris court.
