A Saudi royal murderer is released from UK jail

"Prince Saud bin Abdulaziz bin Nasir Al Saud is likely to be flown back to Saudi Arabia by the end of the year as part of a deal being cut by British officials, The Times has reported. He is one of 11 Saudi citizens in British jails that can now seek transfers home. Under the prisoner transfer agreement, which came into operation in August, five Britons currently languishing in Saudi prisons can ask to serve the remainder of their sentences in the UK. Mr Al Saud, 36, was found guilty at the Old Bailey two years ago of murdering his manservant Bandar Abdulaziz, 32, in a "sadistic" assault in their five-star London hotel suite. The prince, fuelled by champagne and 'sex on the beach' cocktails, had brutally attacked Mr Abdulaziz, beating him 37 times and biting the 32-year-old on both cheeks." (thanks Sultan)
