Saudi Princes

If you have answers, please help by responding to the unanswered posts.
Prosecutors in Lebanon have charged a Saudi prince and nine other people with drug smuggling, a week after a record seizure at Beirut's airport. The prince was not named, but he and four other Saudis were arrested after two tonnes of Captagon pills were found in cases being loaded on a private jet. The others charged in the case - three Lebanese and two Saudis - are at large.

I think he can afford any cost. Who is le lady? Did we see her ? Is she pretty ?

I wasn't suggesting he couldn't afford it lol. You never see pictures of certain Saudi Princesses. I doubt we'll ever see pictures of her, if she doesn't wish to be photographed. :flowers:

Saudi Interior Ministry: Death Sentence carried out against Prince Turki bin Saud Al-Kabeer - ASHARQ AL-AWSAT
Prince Turki bin Saud bin Turki bin Saud Al-Kabeer, Saudi national, had was served a death sentence in Riyadh on Tuesday after pleading guilty of firing to death Adel bin Sulaiman bin Abdulkareem Al-Mihaimeed, also a Saudi national.

After apprehension the prince was referred to the national General Court which issued a death sentence in retribution. The verdict was supported by the Court of Appeal and later endorsed by the Supreme Court.
A royal order was then issued to execute the courts’ ruling.
Three princes – Prince Sultan bin Turki bin Abdulaziz, resident in Geneva and then Massachusetts, Prince Turki bin Bandar of Paris and Saud bin Saif al-Nasr of Milan – have all vanished in the last two years.
A new BBC Arabic documentary screening on Tuesday called Kidnapped! Saudi Arabia’s Missing Princes suggests that all three were abducted on European soil and returned to Riyadh in a systematic attempt by the Saudi authorities to silence high-profile defectors.

A purge in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman removed one of the royal family’s most prominent princes from his ministerial role and arrested other royals in a purge that clears any remaining obstacles to his son’s potential ascension to the throne.
Acting on orders from a newly established anti-corruption committee, headed by his son Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi police arrested 11 princes, four ministers and dozens of former ministers, Al Arabiya television said. Other changes announced separately on Saturday included the replacement of the economy minister and a new head for the powerful National Guard.

Saudi Prince Mansour bin Muqrin killed in helicopter crash near Yemen | World | News |
The fatal crash came one day after Saudi Arabia intercepted a ballistic missile fired by Yemen rebels in the wartorn country.
This evening, local media repeated the prince and everyone else on the aircraft died in the helicopter crash.
They had been taking a tour of an area near the Asir coast when the aircraft went down.

this sounds like a 'real life' game of thrones!
how reliable is really the succession line in arab countries such as saudi? it seems that with any new king, we get a new crown prince of their choosing. reality is that it seems to be arbritrary (he who is the crown prince at the time of the death of the monarch gets to be king)...
Former FBI special agent Ali H. Soufan has confirmed that Prince Abdul Aziz bin Fahd has been killed during an attempt by the authorities to arrest him as part of Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman’s great purge of the Saudi elites. He died when his security contingent got into a firefight with regime gunmen attempting to make an arrest.

It is a rather usual way to secure the throne. It has been my understanding that King Salman decided to do away with the agnatic primogeniture and move the succession line in his immediate family. That is why King Salman's son is named Crown Prince, and King Salman's other sons/allies occupy various important positions in the Saudi government/military. Corruption is a convenient excuse to reduce multitude of Princes in the family.

The inside story of the Saudi night of long knives | Asia Times
A top Middle East business/investment source who has been doing deals for decades with the opaque House of Saud offers much-needed perspective: “This is more serious than it appears. The arrest of the two sons of previous King Abdullah, Princes Miteb and Turki, was a fatal mistake. This now endangers the King himself. It was only the regard for the King that protected MBS. There are many left in the army against MBS and they are enraged at the arrest of their commanders.”

Saudi Crown Prince poised to take over as King: sources | Asia Times
The Saudi “anti-corruption” crackdown led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), which initially netted 11 princes and a few dozen ministers and former ministers, has caught up with hundreds of businessmen, who are being detained in the luxurious Ritz Carlton and other hotels in Riyadh. The Wall Street Journal reports the Crown Prince is targeting an astonishing $800 BILLION in assets believed to be held in 1,700 frozen bank accounts.

The latest speculation, to which we give substantial credence, is that the Crown Prince will top up his coup by having himself crowned King “in a matter of days,” according to our sources. Al-Arabiya, the Saudi-owned pan-Arab television news channel, posted on Twitter on Wednesday that the abdication may be imminent but then deleted the post.

Saudi Arabia king set to hand over the crown to his son | Daily Mail Online
The King of Saudi Arabia plans to step down and announce his son as his successor next week, a source close to the country's royal family has exclusively told
The move is seen as the final step in 32-year-old Prince Mohammed bin Salman's power grab, which began earlier this month with the arrests of more than 40 princes and government ministers in a corruption probe.
The source said King Salman will continue only as a ceremonial figurehead, handing over official leadership of the country to his son - often referred to as MBS.

'Unless something dramatic happens, King Salman will announce the appointment of MBS as King of Saudi Arabia next week,' said the source.

EXCLUSIVE: Senior Saudi royal on hunger strike over purge

Prince Talal bin Abdulaziz, the father of Alwaleed bin Talal and first progressive reformer in the House of Saud, has gone on a hunger strike in protest at the purge being carried out by his nephew Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the detention of three of his own sons.

The 86-year-old prince, who is the half brother of King Salman, stopped eating on 10 November, shortly after his first son, Alwaleed, was arrested on 4 November, and has lost 10 kilos in one month.

Last week, a feeding tube was inserted into him, but his condition at the King Faisal Hospital in Riyadh remains weak, according to several people who have visited him
Eleven Saudi princes detained following protest: media

RIYADH (Reuters) - Saudi authorities have detained 11 princes after they gathered at a royal palace in Riyadh in a rare protest against austerity measures that included suspending payment of their utility bills, Saudi media reported on Saturday.

Saudi officials did not respond immediately to a request for a comment on the report.

Saudi Arabia, the world’s top oil exporter, has introduced reforms that included cutting subsidies, introducing value added tax (VAT) and cutting perks to royal family members to try to cope with a drop in crude prices that has caused a budget deficit estimated at 195 billion riyals in 2018.
The current developments are unfortunate. Feuds within the royal family can spill over into the whole kingdom.
