Another Saudi Prince Arrested, This Time for Smuggling 2 Tons of Drugs for ISIS Fighters
26 October, 2015
Beirut, Lebanon — Last week, the Free Thought Project reported on the case of Prince Majed bin Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, 29. Abdulaziz was arrested and then let off by prosecutors in Los Angeles who claimed they didn’t have enough evidence to charge him with kidnapping and sexual assault.
Abd al-Muhsen bin Walid bin Abd al-Aziz Al Saud was detained at an airport in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, while in possession of 24 bags and eight suitcases full of narcotics.
It should come as no surprise that there is virtually no accountability for a member of the House of Saud, as they break U.S. law with impunity. They have figured out the formula that makes “American justice” work, having large amounts of wealth and being politically connected to powerful individuals.
Similarly to how the U.S. gave a tacit nod of approval to the ascension of the Saudis to the head of the UN Human Rights Council, despite having beheaded more people in the past 12 months than ISIS, Al-Saud was given the Saudi royal treatment by U.S. authorities.
