20 year murder sentence for gay prince

Fri 22 Oct 2010 In: International News View at Wayback View at NDHA

Bandar Abdulaziz A gay Saudi royal prince has been given a twenty year jail sentence for murdering his manservant. Prince Saud Abdulaziz bin Nasir al Saud, 32, was found guilty of murdering the servant, Bandar Abdulaziz, in a frenzied attack in a hotel room in London. Testimony and evidence shown  to the court during the case showed there was a sexual element to the relationship between the pair. Regardless of the conviction and sentence the prince could be eligable for asylum in the UK upon his release on the grounds that as a now-revealed homosexual his life could be at risk from either his own family or his victim's relatives.
