Saudi Arabian royals ? Really?

Here seen with Turkeys elder Erdogan ...

The Saudi prince who get away with the help of dishonest US politicians who bend over for the oil rich Arabs!  
Its sickening that the charges were dropped in the Beverly Hills sexual assault scandal.

Here comes Prince Charming! Saudi Prince Majed bin Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the son of the late King Abdullah, has found himself in hot water lately as three women stepped forward to press charges against him for sexual assault.  The women claim Al-Saud attacked them inside his home for several days until his arrest on Wednesday. To avoid paying taxes and fair wages, many affluent residents of Beverly Hills and its surrounding communities often employ illegal immigrants because they are less inclined to report any form of abuse. Although the prince is a royal member of the House of Saud, the U.S. State Department eventually confirmed that Al-Saud does not have any diplomatic immunity.
He was arrested on suspicion of false imprisonment, sexual assault and battery...

The women, who are employed in the Prince's $37 million Beverly Hills mansion, accused the Saud of making crass sexual advances, reports the Daily Mail.

According to the New York Post, one woman claims the Prince climbed on top of her and began "grinding"  on her in a "sexual and aggressive way." Another said the Prince threatened her life when she refused to partake in a drug and alcohol fueled party.

But timeline the following; These are by far some of the more tame accusations being made against the Prince.
One of the women was forced to watch as the Prince had a male aide fart on his face, as he allegedly shouted “I am a prince and I do what I want. You are nobody.”
In another testimony, a woman claimed the Prince had sexual encounters with male helpers, the Los Angeles civil suit stated. 

And let´s also not forget that this is how he behaves in a nation he visits and that he would be able to do almost anything back in Saudi Arabia without any punishment, no matter how sickening his double morale and actions are! 

So what happened?
The late King Abdullah's son was arrested last month after neighbors called the police when they reportedly witnessed a bleeding woman screaming for help, as she tried to climb the 8-foot-high wall surrounding the mansion.

However, on October 19 Los Angeles prosecutors dropped all charges against him, on the grounds that the accuser's statements could not be corroborated.
Really ? Are the LA prosecutors so easily pushed if a VIP visits the US.
We at SDR know of far lesser charges and accusations that have given people long hard jail time just because they could not afford a lawyer and had to agree on so called plea bargain.

As we discovered many of the stories and videos on this matter have disappeared from the www making it all to clear that the Prince or someone new to him is cleaning up the web regarding his sickening behaviours...

See for instance this page containing a link to this video where the content has been removed!

Due to the fact that wealthy royal families spend exorbitant amounts of money in Beverly Hills, police are encouraged to take a hands-off approach instead of the aggressive tone set in lower income communities. While imperial brats break the laws of other countries with impunity, the despotic House of Saud executes its own populace, including juveniles and people with mental disabilities, after subjecting them to unfair trials in a corrupt judicial system.
Accused by the U.S. State Department of committing numerous human rights abuses every year, the Saudi royal family is currently preparing to decapitate and crucify Ali Mohammed al-Nimr for protesting against the repressive regime when he was 17 years old. Although the U.S. State Department routinely chastises the Saudi regime for committing torture, barbaric executions, and other human rights violations, the blatant hypocrisy of the Department became glaringly apparent when Deputy Spokesperson Mark Toner welcomed the appointment of Saudi Arabia to a leadership position on a U.N. Human Rights panel. 
Now thats as sick and absurd as US civil justice can ever become, or was this dream?

To me and all other onlookers US Justice is on the same level as any 3rd world corrupt Bangladesh or Pakistan there is no excuses as this isn't the first time but rather a ongoing process encouraged from the top US leadership!

Sadly the scandals reading Saudi Royals are not funny or could be seen as the life of the rich and famous ...What we hear of them constantly is beatings homosexuality and drugs and even a killing some years back in Britain.

Lets take a close look at royal the Saudi
scandals around the world ....

Prince Turki And Princess Hind

In 1973, Prince Turki bin Abdul Aziz married beautiful 20-year-old Hind al-Fassi (daughter of a Sufi mystic barred for religious reasons from entering the Saudi kingdom) over the objections of his family. He divorced his first wife in the process. For nine years, they traveled the world with Hind’s mother, sister, and brothers, Mohammed, Allal, Mustafa, and Tarek, as well as a large entourage. They lived a lavish and outlandish lifestyle and caused scandal and headlines wherever they went with their unrestrained spending and wild parties. They eventually settled down in a North Miami condominium, the Cricket Club, overlooking Biscayne Bay.
They went there at the urging of Alvin Malnik, a multimillionaire Jewish lawyer with mob connections whom they had met while staying in London. He had charmed Hind’s brothers with his dashing and adventurous image and quickly managed to take control of the prince’s finances. Various chaos involving the al-Fassi brothers ensued. Mohammed, jealous of Malnik’s power, went to Turkey and adopted a young boy and then dumped his Italian girlfriend to marry a Saudi girl, all apparently in a failed attempt to impress his brother-in-law. Seventeen-year-old Tarek kidnapped a young Saudi woman in a London discotheque, proposed to her, and made a cash offer to her husband to divorce her. Malnik’s son, Mark, fell in love with Hind’s sister. The move to the United States was intended for Malnik to finally sort everything out.

Miami had an effect on the al-Fassis, who discovered that it was the perfect city to host their lavish and rambunctious lifestyles, despite trouble with the neighbors and disastrous real-estate schemes. Trouble started to emerge in 1982, when newspaper articles alleged that servants on the prince’s compound were being forced to work 24/7 at punishingly low pay while being prevented from leaving or contacting the outside. 

A warrant was issued, and a dozen police officers arrived with an interpreter in tow. A shouting and shoving match ensued between the officers and Princess Hind and the bodyguards. During the fracas, the princess’s mother, in the bathroom, asked a police officer to pass her a towel through the door. When he did so, she bit him on the arm.
Lawsuits and counter-suits raged between the police and the prince, who eventually got off due to diplomatic immunity, hastily organized by the State Department and the Saudi ambassador. 

The family was ordered to return to the kingdom, but it wasn’t long before the prince and his entourage relocated again to Egypt, where they took over the top three floors of the Ramses Hilton. The Cairo press in the 1990s was filled with lurid stories of servant beatings and thuggish bodyguards. 
Two Egyptian waiters fell from the hotel while trying to escape down the side of the building with tied bedsheets.

Hind became notorious for refusing to pay a local jeweler thousands of dollars that she owed and for entertaining male guests, including well-known Arab singers, while Prince Turki was passed out from prescription medications, prescribed to him by his domineering wife.

Prince Nayef’s Cocaine Plane

In 2004, Prince Nayef bin Fawwaz Al Shalaan was indicted in the United States and France for his involvement in a drug-dealing operation between South America and Europe. The scheme dates back to a love affair between the prince and a Colombian woman named Doris Mangeri at the University of Miami in the 1970s. They kept in touch and occasionally met over the years, with the prince even acting as a virtual surrogate father for her children. In 1998, the prince is alleged to have met with members of a Colombian drug syndicate introduced through Mangeri. The syndicate was headed by Juan Gabriel Usuga and Carlos Ramon, former brothers-in-law who had both lost an eye in accidents and were making millions in the drug trade. They shared a ranch outside Medellin, Colombia, which they called the Cyclops Cattle Ranch.
The prince allegedly proposed smuggling cocaine on his private Boeing 727 jet, then laundering money through a bank he owned, Kanz Bank, “the only Islamic private bank in Geneva.” The prince has a history with drugs and was once indicted in Mississippi on narcotics charges in 1984. The Colombians agreed to his plan, and 2,000 kilograms (4,400 lb) of cocaine was smuggled into a stash house in Caracas via potato truck, then transferred into 100 empty Samsonite suitcases, and finally placed aboard the prince’s plane. Moved to a Paris stash house, some of the cocaine was then shipped off to Italy and Spain. Unluckily for the conspirators, the Paris stash house and a Spanish shipment were intercepted by authorities. As they squabbled over blame, the Colombians found themselves arrested in the United States.
Despite the Saudi kingdom’s draconian policies against drug trafficking, the prince claimed his meetings with the Colombians were merely a search for investors for a plastics venture and was found not guilty by their courts. As there are no extradition treaties between the kingdom and either France or the United States, there wasn’t much that investigators could do. The Saudi interior minister, Prince Nayef bin Abdel Aziz, even threatened to cancel several French business deals if the narcotics investigation continued. Prince Nayef bin Fawwaz Al Shalaan remains in hiding. In court, Usuga claimed that he asked the prince why he wanted to smuggle drugs, and the prince replied: “The world is already doomed. [I’ve been] authorized by God to sell drugs.”

The Death Of Bandar Abdulaziz

In 2010, Prince Saud bin Abdulaziz bin Nasir al Saud was arrested for beating his manservant and gay lover, Bandar Abdulaziz, to death in an expensive London hotel room. The death is said to have come after weeks of physical and sexual abuse at the hands of the prince. Finally, on Valentine’s Day, in a rage fueled by champagne and “sex on the beach” cocktails, Mr. Abdulaziz was beaten 37 times and bitten on both cheeks. He died as a result of his injuries.
After the attack, the prince ordered glasses of milk and water, dragged the corpse into the bed, and tried to clean up the blood in a failed attempt to cover up his crime. The prince spent most of his trial trying to prove he was not gay, as homosexuality is punishable by execution in Saudi Arabia. However, one expert on Saudi Arabia noted that most executions for homosexuality in the kingdom were linked to rape charges, and as a member of the royal family, the prince was unlikely to suffer capital punishment.
Others believe that the concealment was motivated more from a desire to obscure the sexual element in the crime. The prince and Abdulaziz seemed to have been in a committed but abusive relationship. They went shopping, dined, and stayed together in the best hotels, but the prince subjected his manservant and lover to frequent violent attacks. One such assault, caught on a parking lot CCTV camera, showed Mr. Abdulaziz submitting to a beating and then meekly following his master as he walked off.

The prince attempted to claim that the death was related to a supposed incident where Mr. Abdulaziz was beaten up and robbed of 3,000 euros several weeks earlier, but forensic evidence proved that the wounds were more recent

The prince was convicted and jailed for life but was sent back to Saudi Arabia in 2013 as part of a prisoner exchange deal to allow five Britons languishing in Saudi jails to serve their sentences at home.

Rape At The Plaza Hotel

In 2010, Prince Abdul Aziz bin Fahd was enjoying his opulent and carefree lifestyle at New York’s Plaza hotel. He was staying in a 370-square-meter (4,000 ft2) fourth-floor suite, while members of his entourage occupied 50 rooms in the Plaza and nearby hotels. The prince and his entourage had been staying at the Plaza, partially owned by a royal cousin, for four months when one of his men, Mustapha Ouanes, raped a young barmaid who had fallen asleep in his room. Mr. Ouanes, a mechanical engineer in the employ of construction and telecommunications company Saudi Ogere, was tasked with modifying the climate-control system in the prince’s suite to match his tastes.
On January 26, 2010, Mr. Ouanes met a 26-year-old barmaid and her friend at a bar in the West Village; they shared drinks there and at another bar. The victim left to smoke hashish with another friend, and after she returned, the three went to Ouanes’s two-room suite to share breakfast. Incapacitated by alcohol and hashish, the two women passed out, only to awaken to discover Mr. Ouanes raping the victim. In the trial, the defense claimed that the women tried to make Ouanes pay them for sex, concocting a rape story for a lawsuit and cash payout only after he refused.
Plaza employee Nizar Adeeb testified that when police arrived, he went up to the suite, where one of the women, very upset, shouted at him, “Do you work for the prince, too?” As police took Mr. Ouanes away, Adeeb gave him a $100 bill to take with him and covered the handcuffs with a coat: “The concern was the Plaza’s reputation, more than the client.” Ouanes was convicted and sentenced to 10 years in prison. The judge dismissed an attempt by the defense lawyer to have the jury’s verdict overturned in the light of 61-year-old Mr. Ouanes’s coronary artery disease and supposed worsening health.

Senior Saudi prince accuses cousin over alleged drugging and abduction

Sultan bin Turki files criminal complaint in Switzerland over kidnapping he claims took place just outside Geneva in 2003

A simmering feud at the heart of the Saudi royal family is poised to break into the open after one senior prince accused another of orchestrating his abduction, sedation and forcible repatriation from Switzerland.
In an unprecedented move, Prince Sultan bin Turki has filed a criminal complaint in Switzerland against his cousin Prince Abdulaziz bin Fahd, as well as the current Saudi minister of Islamic affairs, Saleh al-Sheikh, claiming he was seriously injured as a result of a kidnapping that took place in June 2003.
According to Prince Sultan’s lawyers, the Swiss prosecutor St├ęphane Grodecki has ordered a criminal investigation into the case. “A complaint has been filed on behalf of Prince Sultan in Geneva,” said the prince’s lawyer, Pierre de Preux. “A criminal investigation has started and is going on.” Swiss prosecutors refuse to confirm or deny whether an investigation is taking place.
The feuding princes are grandsons of the founder of Saudi Arabia, Abdulaziz Al Saud.

The Guardian made repeated attempts to contact Prince Abdulaziz and Saleh al-Sheikh, sending requests for comment to Saudi embassies in London and Geneva, and to Prince Abdulaziz’s suite at the George V hotel in Paris. Reporters also left messages at the embassies, at government ministries in Riyadh and at the Paris hotel.
The only response came from a media adviser to the embassy in London, who said: “I have sent your request on to the appropriate people, as requested, but this is really not a UK embassy issue. It is also a private matter between these gentlemen, not a foreign ministry matter.”
The row pits two wings of the Saudi establishment against one another. At the turn of the century, Prince Sultan was a rare voice within the Saudi royal family calling for reform. Prince Abdulaziz is the son of the late King Fahd, who ruled the country from 1982-2005.
Prince Sultan’s claim relates to a chain of events stretching back to January 2002, when he began accusing the defence and interior ministries of corruption.
In May 2003 he announced he would hold a public seminar in Geneva to reveal the full extent of corruption at the ministry of defence. A month later he attended an event at a palace owned by members of the Saudi royal family in the Swiss municipality of Collonge-Bellerive, just outside Geneva, along with the two accused.

After a private meeting with Prince Abdulaziz and Saleh al-Sheikh, Prince Sultan says five masked men appeared from behind the curtains and attacked him, knocking him unconscious.

He says he was anaesthetised, taken to a Boeing 747 waiting at Geneva airport, and flown to Riyadh. He says he suffered medical complications and was in a critical condition in Riyadh for five days. He says he was then held at the high security al-Hai’r prison, where he remained for several months. He was then allowed to return to his house in Riyadh, and placed under house arrest.
Aside from one statement given to al-Jazeera in 2004, nothing was heard of him until 2010, when he was moved to the US for palliative treatment.
According to Prince Sultan, he made an unexpected, albeit partial, recovery and escaped Saudi custody late in 2010. He then began planning legal action against those he holds responsible for his abduction.
Ever since Prince Sultan’s father, Prince Turki bin Abdulaziz, found out about his son’s ordeal, a blame game has played out in the royal family over the kidnapping. For several years mutual recriminations and finger-pointing have stalled all attempts at solving the dispute.

But now the long-promised lawsuit by Prince Sultan is finally going ahead in Switzerland, thanks to the new distribution of power in the royal family. The new king, Salman, and Prince Turki, the father of Prince Sultan, belong to the “Sudairi seven”, seven sons of the old King Abdulaziz Ibn Saud who were full brothers with a Sudairi mother. Prince Abdulaziz is also a Sudairi but he lacks support from senior members of the royal family.
Prince Sultan is submitting his medical records in support of his complaint, and witness statements are also expected to form part of the case, though it is expected to be extremely difficult to compel the accused to give statements.

Besides the criminal charges, Prince Sultan has said he will launch a civil claim for the damage done to his health. He says he has submitted medical bulletins in support of his accusations.
Members of the Saudi royal family have sometimes faced scandals and lawsuits in the past but this is the first time such a senior member has accused another of such a serious criminal offence in a European court.
The case has the potential to spark a diplomatic row between Switzerland and Saudi Arabia. Prince Sultan alleges many organs of the Saudi government had a hand in his abduction, including General Intelligence, the ministry of interior, the embassy in Geneva and Saudi Arabian Airlines, as well as some of the most important and influential princes in the royal family. 
The Swiss legal complaint extends to any other participant whose criminal responsibility may yet be discovered. According to defence lawyers, Grodecki has already begun the process of interviewing witnesses who were with Prince Sultan on his visit to Collonge-Bellerive on 12 June 2003.
The office of the general attorney of the republic and canton of Geneva refused to comment on the allegations or the status of any criminal investigation.

Cousins at war
Prince Sultan bin Turki bin Abdulaziz Al Saud
Prince Sultan, 47, is a grandson of Saudi Arabia’s first king, often known as Ibn Saud. He came to brief public prominence in 2002 when he denounced corruption and issued a public call for reform. His father, Prince Turki, had had his own problems with his royal relatives and lived in exile in Cairo and the US for many years. His Moroccan wife had a reputation for black magic. Significantly, Prince Turki belonged to the “Sudairi seven”, the seven sons of Ibn Saud and one of his wives, Hessah bin As-Sudairi, who formed a strong faction that ruled the country after the assassination of King Faisal in 1975. King Salman, who came to the throne this year, is also one of them. In a country where family ties are hugely important, direct royal lineage means influence, power and wealth. Prince Sultan was in poor health before his alleged abduction. Resides in Geneva. 

Title: His Royal Highness.
Prince Abdulaziz bin Fahd bin Abdulaziz Al Saud

Prince Abdulaziz, 42, is also a grandson of Ibn Saud and the favourite son of the late King Fahd, who ruled Saudi Arabia from 1995-2005. But he is not from the Sudairi branch of the family. His extensive business interests include Saudi Oger (construction) and MBC (media). He reportedly has a $1bn (£640m) property portfolio in the US. A mansion on Palace Green, in Kensington Palace Gardens (nicknamed Billionaires’ Row), London, was reported to be being offered for sale by Prince Abdulaziz in July 2013 for £100m. Last year King Abdullah relieved him of his posts as minister of state and a member of the Council of Ministers. He owns a fleet of private jets and is often described as being best known for his extravagance and a playboy image. Title: His Royal Highness.

Saudi prince arrested in largest drug bust in the history of Beirut’s airport

A Saudi prince and four others were detained on Monday in Lebanon in the largest drug bust in the history of the Beirut airport, a security source said.
Saudi prince Abdel Mohsen Bin Walid Bin Abdulaziz and four others were detained by airport security while allegedly “attempting to smuggle about two tons of Captagon pills and some cocaine,” a security source told AFP.

“The smuggling operation is the largest one that has been foiled through the Beirut International Airport,” the source said on condition of anonymity.

Captagon is the brand name for the amphetamine phenethylline, a synthetic stimulant. The banned drug is consumed mainly in the Middle East and has reportedly been widely used by fighters in Syria.
The security source said the drugs had been packed into cases that were waiting to be loaded onto a private plane that was headed to Saudi Arabia.

The five Saudi citizens were still in the airport and would be questioned by Lebanon’s customs authority, the source added.

In April 2014, security forces foiled an attempt to smuggle 15 million capsules of Captagon hidden in shipping containers full of corn from Beirut’s port.

Lebanon’s state news agency also reported Monday’s drug bust, saying the private plane was to head to Riyadh and was carrying 40 suitcases full of Captagon.

See all you need about the very unknown drug to westerners here:

Saudi Arabia’s large royal family has had past run-ins with authorities in various countries.
Late last month, a Saudi prince was arrested in Los Angeles for allegedly trying to force a woman to perform oral sex on him at a Beverly Hills mansion.

But authorities decided not to pursue the charge, citing a lack of evidence.
In 2013, a Saudi princess was accused in Los Angeles of enslaving a Kenyan woman as a housemaid, but 
the charges were also eventually dropped.
