Safe Mode: On
Saudi Prince Jailed For Life For Servant Murder

This sad, sordid story came to an end Wednesday with Saud Abdulaziz bin Nasser al Saud getting the longest sentence of them all.

The 34-year-old Saudi Prince was found guilty and given life for the murder of the 32-year-old servant, Bandar Abdulaziz, who was found beaten and strangled in London's Landmark Hotel back in February. The court was told that the assault contained a "sexual element" and how he'd attacked Abdulaziz many times in the past. Al Saud admitted manslaughter but denied murder, yet was given a minimum term of 20 years.

Fueled by champagne and cocktails on the night in question, al Saud's actions illustrated the "deeply abusive" master-servant relationship with these attacks perpetrated "for his own personal gratification." Judge Mr Justice Bean said, "You were in a position of authority and trust over him which you exploited ruthlessly," before going on to remark, "I think the most likely explanation is that you could not care less whether you killed him or not."

It's been suggested that the prince thought he had diplomatic immunity and that his status could save him. Some of Justice Bean's final words will surely stay with al Saud as he begins his incarceration: "No-one in this country is above the law." (Via BBC)

  • we have all heard of at least several cases regarding abuse situations like this, but the thing thats significant about this is that through the British court system, for once, justice was served to at least one of these a**wholes.

    tnQ and very well judged.

  • He will apparently be granted refuge status when his sentence is served as he would be murdered by his family for being a homosexual.

    • No.Having "bitch's" is not considered politically
      correct in the UK prison system,and is discouraged.
      It would have to be"same sex life companion",and the
      united nations will investigate any wrong-doing,and
      promptly blame Israel.

    • They live on separate wings, along with corrupt cops, politicians and any other protection cases. Hence the term 'NONCE' , which comes from and abbreviation of Not on Normal circulation. A term which was written on prison officers board on the wing.

  • Anytime, anyone used the term "Servant" you know they are living in a world long deemed primitive. I hope he is imprisoned for the eternity of his life.
