Saudi Crown Prince’s children sue Lebanese lawyer
Three children of Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz are suing a Lebanese lawyer they accuse of stealing three million dollars from them in 1999, a judicial source said Wednesday.
In the complaint lodged on their behalf by another Lebanese lawyer, Prince Abdul Aziz and Princesses Adila and Alia accuse the lawyer of theft and breach of trust, the source told AFP.
If found guilty the lawyer could face up to three years behind bars.
The lawyer is accused of selling by proxy seven plots of land owned by the three plaintiffs in Beirut and withholding the money from the sale as well as refusing attempts to settle the problem amicably.
Judge Hatem Madi issued an arrest warrant for the lawyer, the source said. (Albawaba.com)
