SULAIMANI — A French court on Thursday (September 12) found the daughter of the King of Saudi Arabia complicit in violence with the threat of a weapon and complicit in kidnapping, and sentenced her to a 10 month suspended prison sentence.

In their indictment, prosecutors had accused Princess Hassa bint Salman of ordering a bodyguard to beat up a workman in her luxury flat in Paris, according to Reuters.

According to the indictment, workman Ashraf Eid told police the bodyguard bound his hands, punched and kicked him and forced him to kiss the princess’ feet after she accused him of filming her on his cell phone.
