Ba-Abbad is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, and has a parent in Saudi Arabia, the paper reported.

Ba-Abbad attorney Thomas Adler said that even if reports say other Saudi Arabian citizens have fled the U.S. that doesn’t mean Ba-Abbad will flee.

“To make a blanket assertion that, because a foreign government is involved, there’s a higher risk of flight is, 나는 생각한다, tenuous at best,”그는 말했다, according to the paper. “Frankly, it’s a case we believe he’s completely innocent of and is happy to fight.
