He said in a statement on Tuesday that the results of the investigation have revealed that the actions and roles of those involved “would have posed a clear threat to the security and stability of the Kingdom”. The prosecutors are in the process of finalizing the legal procedures ahead of referring the case to the State Security Court, he said.

The prosecutor on April 14 launched investigations into the sedition case. Between 14 and 16 defendants were implicated in the case, most notable of which are Bassem Awadallah, a former senior official and Sharif Hassan bin Zaid.

Both were arrested among the others following an extensive security operation into activities described as threatening to the security and stability of the country.
