Saudi Prince in court for murder 5, October 2010

The Saudi Prince accused of murdering his servant in a London hotel is in court. The prosecution alleges that Saud Abdulaziz bin Nasser Al Saud murdered Bandar Abdulaziz in frenzied and repeated attacks at the Landmark Hotel on 15th February.

In addition to evidence of numerous assaults on the body, including bite marks on the face, the prosecution also suggest that there was some kind of ‘homosexual element’ to the crime.

In a rather poor initial attempt at exculpating himself, Al Saud said that the servant had in fact been killed three weeks earlier.

CCTV footage from the hotel also appeared to show that Bandar Abdulaziz had been severely beaten on occasions before his death. [I’ve just seen the footage: it clearly shows him beating him in the lift].

The Prince is not sufficiently important a Royal to receive diplomatic immunity. Though, were he to be found guilty, I would not be wholly shocked if he was to serve ‘some’ of his sentence back in the Kingdom, perhaps under that notoriously draconian punishment reserved for such people, “house” arrest.

The Times of London reports that the Prince tried to avoid being remanded into custody before his trial by pledging £1 million in cash and offering to live under guard at a house in Mayfair. This was denied.

Update: He has been found guilty.

Saud Abdulaziz bin Nasser Al Saud, who killed his servent after prolonged “sadistic” abuse was jailed for life and lambasted by the judge for telling “a pack of lies” to try to get away with murder. The judge concluded that he didn’t know whether he wanted to kill him or not but that

I think the most likely explanation is that you could not care less whether you killed him or not.

He will serve a minimum of 20 years in jail.

Personally, I feel very bad for anyone who has a sense of intitledment. They lose their humanity as this incident proves.

Way to go Sarah.

Let this criminal face justice in London. If he goes back to Saudi Arabia he will get his freedom and continue to abuse others.

So many poor people in Saudi Arabia have died in silence and without justice.

He probably will be sentenced to serve his penalty at home under “Palace” arrest. Just one more example that the wealthy and Law enforcers are above the Law.
And of course the Yachts and Country Clubs will be an extension of the home.

You think that he could ever return home given that he’s been so spectacularly outed? I could imagine him going to an intermediary country…erm…say Jordan?

Well, this is definately tragic. He definately won’t want to go back to Saudi Arabia because being homosexual is a capital offense there. He will either spend the rest of this time in prison at London (yesssss!) or he will be executed in Saudi Arabia for being gay. Not much luck for him.
