Al-Jubeir wrote, in his Twitter account, that “the facts related to the case of the so-called hacking of Jeff Bezos’ phone refute the allegations against the Kingdom.”
Al-Jubeir added, “Now that the facts are clear in the so-called case (the hacking of Jeff Bezos’s phone), and that the Kingdom has nothing to do with these allegations, as we confirmed at the time.”
Al-Jubeir asked, “Will those who accused the kingdom and tried to publicly harm its reputation admit to preserve their credibility?”
And in January 2020, the Saudi minister had previously said that the kingdom’s crown prince, Prince Mohammed bin Salman, had not hacked Bezos’s phone, adding during his meeting at the time, CNBC: No, of course, this is totally nonsense.
At the time, reports published by media outlets such as the British Guardian newspaper and the American Financial Times newspaper indicated that the Crown Prince of the Kingdom, Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was “involved” in the “direct picture” of the hacking of the billionaire’s phone, Jeff Bezos, the businessman and founder of Amazon.
The Financial Times said in its report: “Investigative experts appointed by Jeff Bezos reached a ‘medium to strong’ degree of confidence that the WhatsApp account used by Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, was directly involved in hacking the phone of the Amazon founder in 2018.” .
