Prosecutors In US Drop Alleged Rape Case Against Saudi Prince


Prosecutors in the city of Los Angeles, United States have announced that they will no longer be filing charges against a Saudi Prince alleged to have raped and assaulted multiple women inside his residence in Beverly Hills.

The accused, 29-year-old Prince Majed bin Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud is said to be the son of King Abdullah, the former ruler of Saudi Arabia who died in January 2015 at the age of 90.

Los Angeles County prosecutors said they decided not to pursue the case because of “lack of evidence” from the victims who filed a lawsuit against the prince.

According to the Los Angeles Time, on September 23 2015, neighbors reported seeing a bleeding woman screaming for help and trying to scale an 8-foot-high wall at the 22,000-square-foot Beverly Hills mansion of the prince currently valued at $37 million.

Neighbors immediately informed the police. The police responded and took Al-Saud into custody. He was held briefly for false imprisonment, sexual assault and battery. The police said they escorted more than 20 people from the mansion of which majority were females. The women, all believed to be illegal migrants were said to be employees of the 29-year-old prince from the Saudi royal family.

The Free Thought Project said that Police reports alleged that there were multiple victims, one of which was a female worker who alleged that Al-Saud tried to force her to perform oral sex.

Al-Saud later posted a bail of $300,000 and was released. Neighbors told reporters that they saw Al-Saud packing out of his resident after he was freed on bail. One of the prince’s neighbors, Eric Stiskin said “I am sure he has taken off on his private jet by now. I don’t think he even needs a passport to get out of here”.

Three women later filed a civil lawsuit three days after the incident. They accused the prince of inflicting emotional distress, assault and battery, sexual discrimination, and retaliation against them. They claimed he attacked them inside his home for several days until his arrest. The case was referred to the LA city attorney’s office for consideration as a misdemeanor charge.

Although the prince is a royal member of the House of Saud, the US State Department eventually confirmed that Al-Saud does not have any diplomatic immunity. And it is unclear who cleared him to leave the country when he is being accused of such a crime.

Al-Saud’s attorney, Alan Jackson stated that his client was innocent and that his client was glad to have resolved the matter without any legal challenge.

He was quoted as saying “The allegations against him are false. The decision by the D.A.’s office not to file charges shows that the accuser’s stories cannot be substantiated. The sheik is very happy to put it behind him and move on with his life.”

To avoid paying taxes and fair wages, many affluent residents from the rich Gulf Nations who reside in Beverly Hills and its surrounding communities often employ illegal immigrants. They also take advantage of their situation to perpetrate all kinds of abuses against them.

The Daily Mail reports that For the past few summers, rich young Saudis, Qataris, Kuwaitis and other Middle Easterners, accompanied by their personal Ferraris, Bugattis and Aventadors, have flocked to the Beverly Hills after their former haunts in Paris, London, Cannes and Monaco became less receptive to the crush of super-expensive supercars with Arabic tags drawing crowds of gaping rubberneckers.

Local residents of Beverly Hills have also said in the past that due to the fact that these wealthy royal families spend exorbitant amounts of money in the area, police are encouraged to take a hands-off approach instead of the aggressive tone set in lower income communities.
