Sheikh Falah bin Zayed bin Sultan Al-Nahyan better mark his calendar, because he’s due in court on May 8th.
The sheikh – whose brother happens to be president of the United Arab Emirates – stands accused of assaulting American national Silvano Orsi last year in Geneva.
Orsi alleges that Falah attempted to woo him with champagne, which Orsi doesn’t drink, and then became enraged when the American rebuffed his royal advances. Rather than walking away, says Orsi, Falah went ape shit and started whipping him with a belt. As if that’s not reasonable! He is, after all, a sultan!
