Fatafta said the crown prince “managed to create a culture of fear” without ensuring sustainable change through measures such as a more transparent state budget and independence for the judiciary.

“If you want to have true accountability, then everybody, including the crown prince and the king, should be accountable,” she said. “In this case, how do you make sure that the crown prince is not abusing his power while he is trying to keep the royal family under check?”
