The British government sentenced a Saudi prince to life in prison, with possible parole after 20 years, for beating and killing one of his servants at a British hotel.
Justice David Bean sentenced Prince Saud Abdulaziz bin Nasser al Saud to at least 20 years in prison on charges of murdering his servant at the Landmark Hotel in London February 15.
The victim, Bandar Abdulaziz, had so many injuries the medical examiner was not able to accurately determine what caused his death, The New York Times reported.
"No one in this country is above the law," Bean said.
While the news of the sentencing has been broadcast internationally, Saudi officials have not made mention of the incident, nor has it been mentioned in any Saudi newspapers or television shows, Fox News stated.
