Candice Cohen-Agnine and Prince Sattam al-Saud
Does anyone know the sad story of the French Jewish woman and the Saudi prince Sattam?
Many years ago she and the prince had a serious relation, but later he decided to marry another woman, having followed family traditions.The couple's only child, a girl, had stayed with her mother until Prince kidnapped the child from mother.The desperate mother did everything in order to return her only kid, even wrote a book, titled " Retournez ma fille" ("Give me my daughter back").
After 3 years of courageous efforts, in 2012 mother won a custody battle in France against the Saudi prince, who had been ordered to return their 10-year old daughter he was alleged to have kidnapped after their cross-religious romance turned sour.
Candice was on the point to have her little girl home, but on 18th August she has been found dead, her death arises many suspicious questions.

As women are treated as chattel by Saudis, it is not a shock that he had their daughter kidnapped and then in her victory to have her child returned, be murdered by the loser. As she was just a woman and a Jew to boot. How very sad for this child.

How is the French police progressing with the investigation?

Anyhow scary story, morale: if a saudi prince is interested in you, think twice.

A witness says : " "What I can tell you is that it wasn't a suicide".
"She was a woman who was a real fighter and a very positive person, and plus, there were plans to see [her daughter] Aya in mid-September. That was her greatest motivation of all."

Mother who won child custody battle against Saudi prince plunges to her death from luxury Paris apartment just days after telling relatives she felt 'threatened'

A mother who was involved in a bitter child custody battle with a Saudi prince she met in London has plunged to her death from a luxury apartment block. Candice Cohen-Ahnine, 35, had told relatives 'I feel threatened' in the days before she fell from the fourth floor of the complex off the Champs Elysees in Paris. Suicide has been ruled out.

Unfortunately if a member of the Saudi Royal house is involved, he can claim diplomatic immunity from prosecution.

COUNTESS 08-20-2012 12:39 PM

What else is new? These things are done without a thought to prosecution.

According to the first police reports," Candice Ahnine's death was just an unhappy accident, due to the antidepressants that she had taken".
A rather vague explanation, I think.

I'm not surprised by the verdict (no one wants to quarrel with the Saudi royals at the moment), but cannot say I'd be 100% satisfied with it if I were Candice's family.
Poor little Aya. :sad:

do they never say in France that a death is inconclusive I wonder because this might mean that there was not anything suspicious.

COUNTESS 08-21-2012 04:32 PM

You don't think they would have hired a bungler who left a trail. Money can buy anything, their kind of money can buy discreet murder. I feel very sorry for the family and the small child.

Conspiracy theories will no doubt run rampant with movies of the week to follow, but sometimes the answer is that accidents do happen. People take too much medication and they die, even those who never had relationships with Saudi princes can have the same thing happen to them. Sad but hardly unique.

COUNTESS 08-21-2012 05:33 PM

Anything is possible, but just when she wins custody of her daughter, she is dead. What bum luck. No one said there was too much medication in her body, and I am sure there was an autopsy and so many people "plunge" to their deaths. A common occurence.

Police sources said Tuesday they did not suspect foul play in the death of Candice Cohen-Ahnine.

source: the china post, well that is a country I would rely on for a truthfull account :tongue:

That's a very horrible and scary story,
you really should be careful of who you're having a relationship and kids with !!
I don't think a lady who fights for her daughter
will have a suicidal nature !!,


Cohen-Ahnine slipped and fell to her death while trying to pass along a narrow ledge between two windows of her fourth-floor flat in a chic Paris district on August 16, witnesses said, according to police.
:ermm: why would anyone do that !!

COUNTESS 08-25-2012 02:49 PM

I think you are right. But power and money have one the day, you can bribe anyone.

carlota 08-25-2012 03:34 PM

this is a horrible story.

can anyone tell us how prince sattam relates to the saudi king?

LipGloss 08-27-2012 03:21 PM

:ermm: I tried to find his full name but I couldn't find it, he's only referred as prince Sattam AlSaud, the story is all over Arabic media and none of them mentions the full name or how he relates to the king so I believe the king and Sattam aren't closely related

COUNTESS 08-27-2012 08:11 PM

Remember, the multiple wives and children, so who knows. The only thing I can say is that they are all availed to great power and money and immunity.
