Arrested on suspicion of false imprisonment, sexual assault and battery, a Saudi prince has also recently been accused of attacking at least three women and holding them captive for several days. Immediately upon posting bail, the prince reportedly emptied his $37 million mansion and fled the country on a private jet to avoid civil litigation and criminal charges.
Police officers arrested Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud at his Beverly Glen mansion on Wednesday after his neighbors reported seeing a woman covered in blood screaming for help while attempting to climb over the 8ft wall surrounding the prince’s property. According to Officer Drake Madison, Al-Saud was booked on suspicion of forcing one of his employees to engage in oral sex. The prince was briefly held on suspicion of false imprisonment, sexual assault and battery before posting $300,000 bail on Thursday afternoon.
Al-Saud’s neighbors reportedly saw numerous cars on Thursday emptying out of the prince’s mansion. One of his neighbors, Eric Stiskin speculated, “I am sure he has taken off on his private jet by now. I don’t think he even needs a passport to get out of here.”
On Friday, three women filed a civil lawsuit accusing Al-Saud of inflicting emotional distress, assault and battery, sexual discrimination, and retaliation against his domestic employees. 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.
After witnesses recorded videos of a Ferrari and a Porsche running Stop signs and recklessly speeding through Beverly Hills earlier this month, police arrived at the house of Sheik Khalid bin Hamad al Thani of Qatar’s ruling family. According to police, Al Thani denied that he was driving either car and invoked diplomatic immunity. By the time detectives discovered that Al Thani did not have any immunity, the sheik had already fled the country.
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.
“We would welcome it,” stated Toner. “We’re close allies.”
