The information that the former crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Naif forbidden to leave the country is wrong, reports Reuters, citing a Saudi official.

Previously, the newspaper the New York Times, citing four current and former American officials and representatives of Saudi Arabia, close to the Royal family reported that the former crown Prince has been banned from leaving the country, and he was imprisoned in his Palace in Jeddah.

«That’s not true, 100%», — said the official Agency, commenting on the publication of the New York Times.

Saudi king Salman bin Abdul-Aziz al Saud on June 21 issued a decree on changing of the crown Prince instead of his nephew Mohammed bin Nayef became 31-year-old son of king Mohammed bin Salman. In addition, Mohammed bin Naif lost the post of interior Minister, Mohammed bin Salman retained his post as defence Minister and became Deputy Prime Minister in the government.
