Manama: The Saudi prince who was executed on Tuesday for the murder of a friend met his family for around four hours in a highly emotional goodbye, a witness has said.


Recounting the last hours of Prince Turki Bin Saud Bin Turki Bin Saud Al Kabeer, the imam of Al Safa mosque in the capital Riyadh said that the convict and the family were crying throughout their meeting held late on Monday at the prison.


“The family was called in to bid the prince goodbye and during the time spent together, you could see only tears and hear only expressions and sighs of sadness,” Mohammad Al Maslookhi posted on his account on the Twitter microblog, Saudi news site Al Marsad reported.


“Turki then offered prayers and read from the Holy Quran until dawn. At around 7am, the warden took him to a place where his last will was written for him as he could not use his own hand, He then made the ablution and at 11am, he was taken to the mosque. In the meantime, the immediate family of the victim Adel Al Muhaimeed who was shot dead in a group brawl three years ago, were kept at their home and had their mobile phones switched off. When they arrived to the square designated for carrying out the execution, senior members of the larger family tried to intervene with Adel’s father to pardon Turki and accept diya (blood money). However, the father said he would not forgive and insisted on the execution of his son’s killer.”
