Saudi princess’ cruel revenge on Egyptian woman

This video from 2010 shows Egyptian workers singing against the Mubarak dictatorship then.

While in Bahrain, not only at least one prince of the royal family personally tortures athletes, and at least one princess personally tortures poetesses … in Saudi Arabia, I have not heard yet about an exact equivalent of that.

Though it now seems that at least one Saudi royal princess hands at least one Egyptian woman over to torturers.

From Al-Masry Al-Youm daily in Egypt:

Saudi princess threatened to keep daughter in prison, says family

Sat, 18/08/2012 – 12:12

The family of Nagla Wafa, an Egyptian woman in prison in Saudi Arabia, said they were threatened that Wafa would be held in prison for life if they reported the matter to the media. Wafa had been sentenced to five years in prison and 500 lashes following a dispute in a business partnership with a Saudi princess.

Wafa, who has been in prison since 2009, already received 300 lashes, her family says.

Her mother, Nashwa al-Saeedy, refused to disclose the name of the princess, but said she is a relative of the first degree to the king. She also said the princess’s lawyer exploited his connections with the dissolved State Security Service.

Her father, Yehya Wafa, a professor of orthopedic surgery at the University of Tanta, said the Foreign Ministry and the Egyptian Embassy in Saudi Arabia did not respond to his pleas.

“My daughter was imprisoned for a year and eight months before they investigated,” he said. “She was brought to a district court in Saudi Arabia although it was a commercial issue.”

Wafa appealed to President Mohamed Morsy and King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz to intervene to release her daughter.

On Pastebin, a site often used by hackers to anonymously lay claim to attacks, the Arab Youth Group claimed they had “targeted administrable structures and substructures of Aramco, and also the Stock Exchange of Saudi Arabia. This action has been done in order to warn the Saudi rulers”: here.

  5. Saudi princess pays $5m bail

    Friday 12 July 2013

    US: A Saudi princess charged with human trafficking has posted $5 million (£3.3m) bail a day after her California arrest.

    Meshael Alayban posted bail after appearing in court to face the felony charge and was being released from Orange County jail.

    District Attorney Tony Rackauckas had asked the judge to set bail at $20m (£13.2m) or deny it entirely, saying it was unlikely any amount would guarantee a Saudi princess would appear in court.
