Two former employees of Twitter Inc. and another man from Saudi Arabia will face espionage charges in the United States.

According to a complaint filed Wednesday, the three accused allegedly hacked the users’ data, before handing it over to Saudi Arabia officials for a fee.

“Ali Alzabarah and Ahmad Abouammo, former Twitter staff, and Ahmed Almutairi, who had previously served the royal family of Saudi Arabia, have been accused of working with the country’s government without being registered as foreign agents,” the complaint filed against them stated.

According to the complaint, Ahmad in early 2015, repeatedly accessed the Twitter account of a major critic of the Saudi royal family. He allegedly hacked the email address and phone number associated with the account.

He also accessed the account of another critic of the Saudi Government, to obtain his personal information.

“This information is used to identify and track Twitter users who upload the message”, the Justice Department said in a statement.
