The Saudi government has very likely played a role in helping Saudi students facing criminal proceedings in the U.S. and Canada escape before their trial dates, or before serving their full terms. This undermines the U.S. justice system, and needs to be investigated and punished.
The Saudi government government has already denied its role in any cases where its citizens have disappeared from the U.S. while facing criminal charges. Pressing the issue further now, at a time of already-heightened U.S.-Saudi tensions, would hurt the critical U.S.-Saudi alliance.
