The British newspaper “The Time”s has revealed a link between Britain’s new British Home Secretary, Priti Patel and Saudi Arabia’s Bin Laden Group.

Priti Patel, who has held no ministerial positions for 20 months before her recent appointment to one of the most prominent portfolios in Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s cabinet, was last month a three-day guest of Saudi businessman Mazen al-Sawwaf, has been a mediator between Bin Laden Group (one of the largest contracting companies in the Arab world) and western companies at the Royal Ascot Royal British Horse Competition.

The Times reported that Mazen al-Sawwaf had for years been a close adviser to Bin Laden, the businessman and former head of bin Laden’s group, and married a non-sister to the late Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

Priti Patel said in a record of interest to members of the House of Commons that her hosting at the British Royal Festival cost 3,000 pounds. Sawwaf also hosted at the festival the other conservative governor known for his supportive positions in Saudi Arabia, Daniel Kachinsky.

The newspaper pointed out that Patel was forced to leave the post of Minister of International Development in November 2017, to hold unauthorized meetings with Israeli politicians, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
