Is Killer Prince Saud Abdulaziz bin Nasser al Saud Denying He’s Gay Because He’ll Face Execution In Saudi Arabia?

Is the reason royal prince Saud Abdulaziz bin Nasser al Saud keeps denying he had a gay sexual relationship with the servant he killed stem from his likely execution if he returns to Saudi Arabia as an out homo?

Having strangled and bitten and whatever-d to death his 32-year-old servant Bandar Abdulaziz, the 34-year-old prince who’s on trial continues insisting it was not “murder,” nor were the two all gay together. But escorts and bartenders and waiters keep saying otherwise, talking about Al Saud’s hotel room being filled with half naked dues, how he was a patron of rentboys, and how his massages involved getting off.

We’ve yet to hear much from Britain’s prosecutors about the motive for the murder (lover’s quarrel?), but state attorneys do keep trying to brand the prince as gay, something his lawyer denies. But might the denials be less a legal strategy and more a way to ensure he isn’t killed when (if?) he returns to Saudi Arabia?

Prosecutor Bobbie Cheema told England’s Old Bailey central criminal court: “Homosexuality is illegal in Saudi Arabia and carries the death penalty which is still applied in some cases. “The country in which any alleged acts took place would have little bearing on the likelihood of prosecution as the Saudi legal system is based on the Shariah law which is considered to be universal.” She said prosecution would be a matter for the Saudi authorities but can depend on the wishes of the person’s family. Some relatives push for the harshest penalty if they are deemed to have shamed the family, she said. Gay Saudis have been granted asylum in Britain on the basis they could face prosecution, “and potentially the death penalty — or harm if they returned”, Cheema said.

[Al Saud's lawyer John Kelsey-Fry] said the Saudi law as described to the court would only apply “if it were the case that the defendant had engaged in homosexuality”.

Which, of course, Al Saud totally didn’t do! If he manages to escape serving the rest of his life in prison for his servant’s death, the prince can return to Saudi Arabia — where, if he’s just a guy who slays the help, no big deal. But if he slept with the help? Off him in the name of family honor.

      Fry him, hang him – whatever those barbarians do. In this case it’d actually be justice.

      Send him to Saudi Arabia.
      This is not a queer issue; he committed a crime and is not a U.K citizen. Now, if he applies for refugee status due to sexual orientation than it becomes a more tricky issue.

      But as far as punishment goes, I wouldn’t hope for justice. He might be gay, but beyond that he is a Saud, member of the country’s royal family. He’s a male Saud, a slap on the wrist is all he’ll get.

      He will die if it is proven he is gay. He will be hanged in public for all to see if they want.

      @haji727: your statement is no different than saying if a girl is raped, she brings shame upon herself and family if she reports it. Dreadful. Backward. Fucked up. Don’t even start please.

      @haji727: FYI: in the future, do not be murdering your gay lovers or one night stands if you want to remain in the closet.

      Re No 5: It seems to be a different guy than the one shown in the picture (just checked an ABC web site with a video of the crime in progress and it looked like the prince is bald).

      The won’t do anything to him if he returns to Saudi Arabia. Saudi royalty don’t get punished for anything and they generally know who’s gay and who’s not in the families.

      They keep really stunning & beautiful western slave-whore young boys & girls locked up in an underground prison under King Saud’s marble palace. They are for ANY kind of unrestricted
      sex-play, at any hour of the day or night by any member of the extensive Saud royal family. Originally, they are spotted in their native countries,drugged,tied up & flown in private planes to the kingdom. Ther is no escape. When the royals are tired of screwing them-they are sold of as used-whores, or just dropped at night from helicopters into the vast deserts, left there to die. They, like all infidels, are of no value, as the koran says: “Sub-human filth, to be enslaved, made into whores, or murdered.”
      There is NO concept of a common humanity in Islam. All that matters is “The Ummah”= The Muslim people & the conquering of the entire earth under Shariah Islamic Law.
      The Liberal politicians look the other way while children are gang-raped.
