TEHRAN – Amira Bint Aidan Bin Nayef, the ex-wife of the Saudi Prince Al Waleed bin Talal (who was recently arrested in scope of the anti-corruption purges in the country) said that those who accuse others of corruption and money laundering, are in fact highly corrupted themselves.
The have turned the city of Jeddah into a slave market where underage girls are being exploited for noisy sex parties involving drug and alcohol abuse, Amira Bint Aidan Bin Nayef told the French newspaper Le Monde recently.
She said that one of the main reasons why this keeps going on is that the members of the so-called Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice (Saudi Sharia police) tend to keep away from the matter, fearing they might lose their jobs, should they intervene.
The newspaper quoted the princess as saying that a Hallowen event was recently held in Jeddah, and which was attended by 150 people, including employees of the consulates. The scene was like a typical nightclub anywhere outside the Kingdom, with available wines, dancing couples in fancy costumes, and a DJ.
Bint Aidan said the price of smuggled liquor in the country is very high. For instance, the price of the Smirnoff vodka is 1500 Riyals ($ 400), sometimes forcing party organizers to refill the original bottles with a local wine called Siddiqui.
She said that slavery in Saudi Arabia has different forms, but it is done in secrecy and permitted only among the primary beneficiaries of the princes of the House of Saud.
But then she mentioned one of the most repulsive things: Buying and renting the children, especially the orphans, from countries like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, the Philippines, Djibouti, Somalia, Nigeria, Romania and Bulgaria.
The children become the property of those who buy them and are not allowed to leave without permission.
