If Killer Saudi Prince Al Saud Isn’t gay, He Certainly Liked Half-Naked Men Parading Around His Hotel Room

The British murder trial of Saud Abdulaziz bin Nasser al Saud (pictured, left) continues with more attempts to convince the court the the Saudi prince was a homo. Having admitted to killing (but not murdering) his servant Bandar Abdulaziz (right) back in February during a “ferocious attack” (that left Abdulaziz strangled and with bite marks on his face), Al Saud repeatedly insisted he is not gay, and did not do gay things with the help. But everyone taking the stand says otherswise!

There were the two male escorts, and now a waiter at the Landmark Hotel, where security footage showed Al Saud viciously attacking Abdulaziz (see bottom).

A man wearing bright boxer shorts was seen in the London hotel room of a Saudi prince accused of murdering his servant, a court has heard. Shamshul Arafin, a waiter, said he spotted the man when he was serving Taittinger champagne to the room where Saud Abdulaziz bin Nasser al Saud was staying. Mr Arafin told the Old Bailey he assumed the guest, at the Landmark Hotel in Marylebone, central London, was gay.

[...] Mr Arafin, who was working as an overnight room service waiter, has told jurors how he was called several times to room 312 where the men were staying, bringing Evian water, sticky toffee pudding and pasta. He told the court the first occasion he served the men – one lighter-skinned, one darker-skinned – was to bring a bottle of Taittinger champagne, and it was then he saw the man, in his early 20s, in his boxer shorts there. “I have seen a guy – fair, white skinned, it seems to me he is from Europe. He is young. I have seen him for two seconds. He was wearing shorts and that’s it. He was wearing colourful boxers. He wasn’t wearing any top. “Based on two males staying in the same room and one is half naked, it’s quite obvious to me, it seems to me they are gay – the lighter-skinned man.” Mr Arafin said he dealt with “lots of gay people” at the hotel, adding: “It seems to me that he is gay.”

I do love it when open speculation about somebody’s sexuality is allowed in court! But I guess the relationship between Al Saud and his dead victim is a crucial element to the prosecutors, who are trying to prove it was an abusive gay love affair that resulted in Abdulaziz’s death.

And as we all know, when a superior shares a hotel room with an underling, there’s something gay going on.

      @AdonisOfFire: They’d have to release him and send him back to Saudi Arabia first.

      The problem is that these people are raised with a sense of entitlement that makes them think it’s perfectly okay to do this to other people. That they literally own these people and therefore can do what they want to them. That’s why he “killed” the guy but didn’t “murder” him – he genuinely doesn’t think he did anything wrong.

      Of course he doesn’t think he did anything wrong! The middle east is a shit hole and that’s all there is to it, gays try to be all uppity and stick up for the that culture but the truth is that it is SHIT. Places like Dubai have built their wealth (and now debt) on slavery, bringing people from poor countries with promises of work and then taking their passport and forcing them to work from 6 am to 1 am everyday with no vacation and not health care and no pay. It sucks so bad that in places like that you cannot even buy a cellphone unless you get authorization from your boss.

      That photo appears in several reputable news sources. Is Saud’s brother Prince Faisal also gay? I know a number of gay brothers. Saudi Arabia is a bleak place for gays. This from The Guardian 2008:

      The Saudi Arabian security forces have arrested 110 men at a “gay wedding” party in Jeddah, according to a Saudi online newspaper.

      Al-Wifaq, which has connections with the interior ministry, said the authorities had raided a wedding hall on Monday night after a tip-off and found the men – all Saudis – dancing and “behaving like women”.

      Eighty men were later released, but 30 appeared in a Jeddah court on Wednesday to face charges, the paper said.

      Homosexuality is illegal in Saudi Arabia and is punished by flogging, jail or death.
