Court Orders KSA Depositions 8-27-20

On September 10, 2020, the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York released a redacted version of its August 27, 2020 decision ordering the depositions of key Saudi Arabian government officials.

Some of the most important officials that the Court ordered to sit for depositions include three Saudi princes and two Saudi officials whose names and involvement in the plot have not previously been publicly released, Musaed al-Jarrah and Abdullah al-Jaithen.

Never before has a U.S. Court ordered such high-ranking government officials to appear for deposition. This is a groundbreaking decision and we hope it signifies a turning point in the pursuit of truth and justice for the 9/11 Community.

No court has ever ordered a foreign nation to produce its highest-ranking ministers to provide testimony – let alone members of a royal family.
