Saudi Prince Gets Royal Treatment in U.S., Let Off on Charges of Raping Multiple Women
Los Angeles, CA – On Monday, Los Angeles County prosecutors announced that they would not be filing charges against a Saudi prince, due to “lack of evidence,” after arresting him on suspicion of sexual assault at a Beverly Hills mansion.
The accused was connected directly to the geopolitical centers of power, as Prince Majed bin Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, 29, is the son of King Abdullah the former ruler of Saudi Arabia, who died in January at the age of 90.
In what amounts to slap in the face of the alleged victims, the case was referred to the L.A. city attorney’s office, for consideration of a misdemeanor charge.
As previously reported by The Free Thought Project, the three women accusers filed suit in civil court days after the incident:

The women claim Al-Saud attacked them inside his home for several days until his arrest on Wednesday. To avoid paying taxes and fair wages, many affluent residents of Beverly Hills and its surrounding communities often employ illegal immigrants because they are less inclined to report any form of abuse. Although the prince is a royal member of the House of Saud, the U.S. State Department eventually confirmed that Al-Saud does not have any diplomatic immunity.
Al-Saud’s attorney, Alan Jackson stated that his client was innocent and that his client was glad to have resolved the matter.
“The allegations against him are false,” Jackson said. “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.”
According to a report by the L.A. Times:
Al-Saud was detained by police for hours last month after a reported disturbance inside the compound, police said. After police interviewed other people inside the residence, they arrested Al-Saud on suspicion of forcing oral copulation.
When officers arrived at the home, they found a “party atmosphere,” LAPD Lt. John Jenal said last month.
Since his arrest on Sept. 23, Al-Saud has remained in Southern California, free on $300,000 bail, according to his attorney. However, he may very well have been back home in
