PRINCE KHALID FAISAL SAUD
ARRESTED FOR ILLEGAL DRUGS
Because of State Department intercession Saud princes are not prosecuted
for illegal drugs in the US. Other countries do not tolerate this behavior.
The London Times reports: A member of the Saudi royal family accused
of possessing heroin, cocaine, Ecstasy and cannabis in his London hotel
room ... did not have anyone to stand surety for him. Prince Khalid Faisal
Saud, 41, a relative of King Fahd, was arrested.
PRINCE FAISAL MAKES MONEY
THE OLD FASHIONED WAY
The Saud family have had a commission scheme worked out for them which
is just the old payoff/bakshish scheme in different clothing.The arrangement
allows the Saud family to indirectly collect huge amounts of money from
the oil revenues they control. The London Observer says: "More than
$200 million was paid to a close associate of Saudi Arabian ruler King Fahd's
eldest son, Prince Faisal, after his government department awarded a $550m
contract to an Anglo-German company.
The payments have been disclosed by
the British architect for the lavish King Fahd International Stadium in
Riyadh ... The payments went to two companies connected with Hassan Enany,
the project's Saudi 'sponsor'. Mr Eneny ... has long-standing links to prince
Faisal, who heads the Presidency of Youth Welfare. Budgeted at $350m, the
stadium cost $558m. ... In certain cases the money went directly into Swiss
bank accounts. ... Mr Enany's company, Al-Manara Construction, ... did no
work on the contract. 'It just received money'
A CLASS ACTION IN US COURTS AGAINST THE SAUD FAMILY WOULD BE THE BIGGEST
SINCE BREAST IMPLANTS
Persistent Washington trial lawyers interested in attacking the deep
pockets of the Saud family are quietly pushing for an alien tort statute
modification allowing US lawyers to sue governments and individuals within
those countries in US courts. The prime targets of this modification are
the Saud family who enslave and torture US citizens. What is remarkable
about the legislation is that the Saud family Washington retainers allowed
the legislation to go to the brink before interceding. Perhaps this ploy
is to make it look good and to justify those high fees charged to the Saud
family. The State Department successfully engineered an eleventh hour defeat
of this legislation which had been proposed by Senators Spector and Moynihan.
We will watch to see what these lawyers do next, especially if the Saud
family is abandoned by Washington.
