A Federal judge has ruled that 9/11 families can question 24 Saudi government officials tied to the attacks

The latest ruling came on the eve of 9/11 and 19 years after the attacks. Manhattan Federal Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn’s ruling is in favor of the families of 9/11 victims who believe Saudi Arabia are tied to the hijackers.

This ruling includes the questioning of Prince Bandar bin Sultan al-Saud. He served as the Saudi ambassador to the United States from 1983 to 2005.

From FOX61.com:

The groundbreaking ruling comes after years of litigation that they say were held up by the federal government. They say the information of the attacks was made classified to preserve relations with the Saudi’s. In 2018, they subpoenaed the FBI to release some of that information.

“That has confirmed and corroborated some of the evidence that we have that certain Saudi officials assisted the hijackers when they arrived in the United States,” said Andrew Maloney, a liaison counsel to the victim families.
