According to a report in UAE newspaper Al-itihad, Tamim said that the man, whose identity was not revealed, was shown in the surveillance footage used to identify the other suspects in the case.
The police chief did not reveal any other details about the ongoing investigation, but did reiterate his belief that the Mossad was behind the assassination, saying "we are 100 percent sure."
Earlier this month, Tamim announced the arrest of another "key suspect"
in the case, saying that the individual was arrested in a Western
country two months ago, but that the country that made the arrest asked
that details of it not be made public.
