Saudi Arabian prince ex­e­cuted for mur­der

The Myanmar Times - - World -

SAUDI Ara­bia ex­e­cuted a mem­ber of the royal fam­ily for mur­der, in a rare case in­volv­ing one of the thou­sands of mem­bers of the House of Saud.

Prince Turki bin Saud al-Kabir was put to death for shoot­ing dead Adel alMa­hemid, a Saudi, dur­ing a brawl, the in­te­rior min­istry said.

Kabir was the 134th per­son put to death in Saudi Ara­bia this year.

The Arab News re­ported in No­vem­ber 2014 that a court in Riyadh sen­tenced the prince to death for killing his friend.

An­other per­son was also in­jured in an ex­change of gun­fire fol­low­ing a dis­pute at a camp on the edge of Riyadh in De­cem­ber 2012, the news­pa­per said. Desert camps are pop­u­lar gath­er­ing places for Saudis.

The sen­tence re­flected the king­dom’s “fair jus­tice sys­tem”, Arab News quoted the vic­tim’s un­cle Ab­dul Rah­man al-Falaj as say­ing. –
