Saudi royal smuggles 2000kg of illegal drugs

This video says about itself:

Princely Trafficking (Saudi drug smuggling)

6 December 2012

Documentary about Saudi Prince Nayef Al-Shaalan, who was sentenced in absentia to ten years in jail on charges of involvement in a cocaine-smuggling gang. The prince was one of ten people handed jail terms in connection with an operation which landed two tonnes of cocaine outside Paris in 1999. He was accused of using his diplomatic immunity to smuggle drugs to France on board a private jet. Was the grandson of founding Saudi monarch Abdulaziz, and son-in-law to the Saudi deputy defence minister, trying to covertly raise money for black operations?

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:

Saudi prince caught with 2,000 kilos of drugs

Today, 17:10

In Lebanon, a Saudi prince has been arrested on suspicion of drug smuggling. At the airport of the capital Beirut was a load of two tonnes of amphetamine tablets intercepted just before it was brought on board the private jet of the prince.

According to an anonymous source within the Lebanese security service this concerns prince Abd al-Muhsen bin Walid bin Abd al-Aziz Al Saud. Besides the prince were still detained four others. All the suspects are from Saudi Arabia.

The drugs were divided over forty bags. According to Lebanese media this is the largest drug bust ever at the Beirut airport.

A UN report from 2014 states that in the Middle East there is a huge demand for amphetamine, also known as speed. More than half of the amphetamine that is globally intercepted, is found in that region.

For anything to do with drugs, you will get the death penalty in Saudi Arabia. Well … you will get it if you are a poor Pakistani … … I am not so sure about royal family scions. As in Saudi Arabia, as in quite some other countries, there is one law and one, other, law for royals and for other elite people.
