President Biden will not punish the Crown Prince despite his promise
Although President Joe Biden had promised to punish top Saudi leaders, he refused to impose sanctions on Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman, whom the US intelligence community had idenftifies as responsible for the death of journalist Jamal Hashukji.
Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman had apparently approved an operation to capture or kill journalist and critic of Riyadh Jamal Hashukji, who was brutally murdered at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in 2018.
While US Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced visa restrictions affecting the 76 Saudis involved in the persecution of activists and journalists, he stopped short of imposing any measures that would affect the prince. The former deputy chief of intelligence and the Saudi military unit was put on the Ministry of Finance's sanctions list, yet the crown prince himself wasn't mentioned.
