Lebanon arrests, interrogates Saudi prince for carrying drugs

submit to reddit

Several cartons of narcotics seized from a Saudi prince by Lebanese authorities in Beirut.

Security forces in Lebanon interrogate a Saudi prince on charges of carrying drugs on his private plane, Lebanese media say.

Abd al-Muhsen bin Walid bin Abd al-Aziz Al Saud was detained on Monday at the Rafik Hariri International Airport in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, while in possession of 24 bags and eight suitcases full of narcotics.

The Saudi prince was arrested along with four other individuals.

They were charged with attempting to smuggle around two tonnes of captagon pills on their private jet to Saudi Arabia.

Police have launched an investigation into the smuggling case.

Captagon pills have “the typical effects of a stimulant” and produce “a kind of euphoria – you’re talkative, you don’t sleep, you don’t eat, you’re energetic,” according to Lebanese psychiatrist Ramzi Haddad.

The drugs are reportedly the Takfiri Daesh militants’ favorite narcotics.

    Well here in grand ole America our justice system has decided recently to drop felony sexual assault charges brought by three different women against an untouchable Saudi Prince. Why do we allow these scum to get away with crimes Scot free?
