Florida court fines Niece of Saudi King for pushing maid
A Florida court on Tuesday sentenced a Saudi princess to a fine of 1,000 dollars for pushing her Indonesian maid down the stairs, local television stations reported, according to AFP.
Princess Buniah al-Saud, aged 41, was in Saudi Arabia and did not attend the trial. Her lawyers did not contest the battery charge against her before a court in Orlando.
She was fined an amount of 1,000 dollars for pushing Ismiytai Memet Suryone, 36 down a flight of stairs last December.
In February, the judge had allowed al-Saud to return to the Saudi Kingdom after the princess promised she would return for the trial. She is a niece of Saudi ruler King Fahd. (Albawaba.com)
