The US Department of Justice (DoJ) on Wednesday said they would reveal the name of a Saudi official, allegedly in connection with Al-Qaeda members involved in the attacks on September 11, 2001.

Following years of pressure by family members of the victims of the attack, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the US Department of Justice (DoJ) have decided to reveal the name of a Saudi official who has been kept secret.

The case has long been considered a disgrace to the Saudi government which has repeatedly denied any links to the terrorist network.

The individuals in question are the third person in Saudi Arabia’s three main sources referred to in the FBI report on the attack, as having links to the attackers shortly after they arrived in the US.

In all 19 men, 15 of them were Saudi Arabians who hijacked aircraft to attack the New York World Trade Center, Pentagon and possibly the White House or Congress.

The unexpected tragedy claimed 3,000 lives in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania, prompting the families of all victims to file a lawsuit against the Saudi government.

An official report of the attack in 2002 stated that some attackers received funds from Saudi Arabian officials, at least two of whom were allegedly spies.

Both are Fahad Al Thumairy and Omar Al Bayoumi, both of whom were serving at the Saudi embassy in the US at the time of the incident.

Subsequent investigations, however, denied the allegations that they were related to the terrorist group.

But another 2012 report by the FBI reiterated the allegations and referred to a third person who may have directed them, but his name was kept confidential.

Rumors have linked the individual to the Royal family, but their true identity remains a question mark, coinciding with the close cooperation of Washington and Riyadh following the attacks in wiping out Al-Qaeda networks in West Asia and South Asia.
