Saudi Prince Convicted of Murder

 

Prince Saud Abdulaziz bin Nasser Al Saud of the Saudi Royal Family was convicted Wednesday of murdering his servant, Bandar Abdulaziz, in the Landmark Hotel in London. His sentence is life in prison with the chance to be released on parole after 20 years.

His servant was so severely beaten that the cause of death is unknown. The prince denied having a homosexual relationship with his servant, but nude photos on his cell phone proved otherwise.

He was not allowed diplomatic immunity, and must face his sentence. Saudi news outlets are not covering the story.

is much safer here. I do not fancy his chances in Saudi, for two very good reasons.

Dear Cptn.Jane, I ask this from you but with the utmost love and respect, but, are you insane?!? :)

He is a Saudi prince. Back home he can beat the crap out of all his servants all eh wants and the worst it will amount to, if convicted, and that is a very big if, is he will have to pay some money to the family of the dead servants.

Here is the fine for murder in Saudi:

The life of a Muslim man is worth $26,222 USD, while the life of a Muslim woman is half.

The life of a Christian man is worth as much as the life of a Muslim woman, at $13,333 USD. The life of a Christian woman is worth half at ~$6,666 USD.


The life of a Hindu man is worth $1,777 USD, the woman is half, that´s less than $1000.

I can not remember the price of a black man but it is not much more than the life of a hindu.

How much is your life worth on that list Cptn. ?

You may feel an apology is in order after rereading Janes comment.
It is in The source that his punishment for being gay and for embarrassing the Saudi family would be harsh if he ever returned to his home land.

  @Saudi Punishment  
 
1. If he was back home in Saudi he would have never been convicted of anything serious to begin with.

2. Only foreigners get punished. One time a Saudi princess got executed but her case was special.

3. At most the prince would be convicted for murder and not for being gay. The servant would be accused of being gay and the prince would get a reduced sentence because his servant is a convicted gay.

4. A punishment in Saudi for murder is to pay diyya. The diyya is the amounts I mentioned above.

5. @alam.mujtehadi: Read up on "diyya", and then ask arab friends (from the gulf) the price of diyya in saudi. Non-gulf arabs might not know the details of the Saudi diyya.

6. A little secret about the gulf/iran/iraq thing. Homosexuality is very very very big. Goto trends.google.com. It is a site dedicated to show us what are people looking for in google.

Search for the word ´sex´ and then search for the words ´boy sex´. It will show you who which country is looking for what.

Cheers and you are all very much welcome for the lessons I just taught you about the culture.

  Crime & Punishment & Accusing  
 
For the record: It is a pattern I notice. The more extreme a person seems to be against homosexuality, the more likely they are. Guilty accusing loudest i think. Think Republican. the pattern holds very well for the saudis who are the most extreme ´punishers´ of gay.

You can´t remember the amount of Diyya paid for a "black" person because it is not in the Wikipedia article you used to educate yourself. Furthermore you left out the part where the victims families have a right to choose between Diyya and
the execution of the murderer.

Since the crime happened in London, Saudi law counts for nothing.

Homosexuality may be big in the middle east but it is still illegal and sodomy is punishable by death.

"You can´t remember the amount of Diyya paid for a "black" person because it is not in the Wikipedia article you used to educate yourself."
Awesome Mrspike. Althhough i did not collect this tidbit from wiki, I do however commend wikipedia for making available stuff that, in the past was only available in Arabic. Which is how I learned about Diyyet Al Kateel long time ago.

"Furthermore you left out the part where the victims families have a right to choose between Diyya and
the execution of the murderer."
I have yet to see a single non-saudi ´refuse´ to accept the diyya from a Saudi.

"Since the crime happened in London, Saudi law counts for nothing."
True. And the opening remark is that the man is lucky to be in London and not in Saudi. I disagreed with the opening remark.

"Homosexuality may be big in the middle east but it is still illegal and sodomy is punishable by death."
Hence it seemed necessary i educate the thread on the actual culture. Which is highly homosexual despite the punishments. A case of guilty accusing the harshest.

So far so good, nice meeting you and I am glad we are 100% in agreement so far on everything I wrote.
