Saudi prince defects: 'Brutality, oppression as govt scared of Arab revolts'

In recent weeks Saudi Arabia has launched an offensive against anti-regime activists arresting many and sentencing some to years in jail. Total number of political prisoners has now surpassed 40 thousand according to some reports. The crackdown has even forced a member of the ruling family to defect. RT Arabic spoke exclusively to Saudi prince Khaled Bin Farhan Al-Saud - who accuses the monarchy of corruption and silencing all voices of dissent.
