A Saudi princess told her bodyguard to kill a Parisian decorating her flat after accusing him of taking pictures of her.
“You have to kill this dog, he doesn’t deserve to live,” the princess told her bodyguard, according to Le Point. She then ordered her bodyguards to beat the decorator, had him tied and then made the man kiss her feet.
The Saudi princess is an unnamed multi-millionaire, who is said to be related to the late King Khalid bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, allegedly attacked the man in the French capital earlier this summer. He had arrived at the property in Avenue Foch — a prestigious road that runs off the Arc de Triomphe to carry out some basic decorating.
But when the Saudi princess saw the workman taking photographs on his smart phone camera, she accused him of wanting to sell them to the media. She then ordered her bodyguards to beat him, had him tied and then made the man kiss her feet.
The decorator was in the flat for four hours before he was kicked out and told to “never return” to the area. He reported the incident to the police and asked for the equivalent of some 16,000 pounds for his work at the flat and for his tools to be returned. According to Le Point, he had bruises on his head as a result of the attack, which he reported to the police.
The incident could have repercussions for the Saudi royal family. Not only is the country a massive market for French arms sales but some of the most prestigious real estate in France is owned by Saudi citizens. Unlike French security guards, their protection staff are allowed to carry guns since the two countries share friendly diplomatic relations.
