#FOREIGN NEWS:Lebanon Charges Saudi Prince with Drug Trafficking

Share This







Beirut, Mar 28 (Prensa Latina) Saudi Prince Abdul-Mohsen bin Walid bin Saud bin Abdul-Aziz al-Saud, who got a 10 year prison sentence for drug trafficking, must reportedly serve another six years in a Lebanese jail.

A report disclosed on Thursday by local press, says that the Saudi prince, dubbed 'Prince Captagon', imprisoned in Lebanon since 2015, heard his sentence on Wednesday with his accomplices.

A court found him guilty of contraband, after analyzing that the prince tried to get out of Lebanon and take two tons of captagon in his private plane to Saudi Arabia. Captagon contains amphetamine and it is commonly used by terrorists and paramilitaries.

The royal prince's bodyguard, Saudi citizen Yahya al-Shammari, is also serving the same sentence.

At the time of his detention, the prince denied having knowledge of the contents of the packages and blamed Shammari for the cargo.

Saudi nationals Bandar Sharari, Ziad al-Hakim and Mubarak al-Harthy, who were involved in the drug trafficking operation, received one-year prison sentence and fines, although they were released for time served.
