The man was accused of providing Houthi militias with the coordinates and the location of those sites, thus committing treason against the Kingdom, which had hosted him and gave him a residence permit.
During a hearing at the competent criminal court in Riyadh, the convicted man confirmed his links with terrorist organizations to which he gave information and coordinates of government and military sites and facilities, in an attempt to harm the security and interests of the Kingdom.
The man committed the crime in return for money and promises by the Houthis that he would be given a key position in the terrorist movement.
