The House of Saud(omy)

Gay Saudi Prince Murders Lover in London

A gay Saudi prince beat and strangled his male servant to death in a frenzied sexual assault at their luxury London hotel suite, a court heard on Tuesday.

Saud Bin Abdulaziz Bin Nasir al Saud, 34, who is a grandson of Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah, killed Bandar Abdullah Abdulaziz on February 15 after abusing him for weeks, the court heard.

The 32-year-old victim was found with severe injuries including bite marks on his cheeks in a bloodstained bed in the suite at the Landmark Hotel, which he was sharing with the prince, prosecutors said.

Prosecutor Jonathan Laidlaw told the jury at the Old Bailey in London, England's Central Criminal Court, that Saud had admitted the lesser charge of manslaughter but denied murder and a separate count of grievous bodily harm.

I thought that homosexuality was illegal in the Muslim world, punishable by beheading. As with people with wealth and political power all around the world, there is a different set of rules it seems.

Saud told police they drank at the hotel bar until the early hours of the morning on February 15 before returning to the room and that when he woke in the afternoon he could not rouse the victim, the court heard.

I also thought that practitioners of The Religion Of Peace were forbidden from drinking alcohol before having their gay sex. Again, the exalted Prince seems to be immune from the rules that King Abdullah's subjects are forced to follow over there in Saudi Arabia. The Saudi Royal family is a blight on the people they claim to have the divine right to rule over. All royal family lines seem to degrade over time, due to inbreeding, decadence and detachment from real people and what it means to have to make your way in the world without having free access to private jets, limousines and millions of dollars that they never earned.
