On July 20, 2017, a video went viral where a Saudi prince along with some of his associates was seen abusing citizens. Not only the victims were verbally abused but also they were physically harmed by using guns.
The prince has been identified as Prince Saud Bin Abdul Aziz Bin Musaed Bin Saud Bin Abdul Aziz. People were of the view that the Prince should not have done this.
Hearing the news, King Salman issued a legal notice ordering the arrest of Prince Saud Bin Abdul Aziz Bin Musaed Bin Saud Bin Abdul Aziz and his associates involved in an unjust act.
The King assured irrespective of the fact that Saud is a Prince, he is accountable for his acts. A law must hold everyone equally: if he is found guilty he shall be punished.
The culprit prince has been arrested and jailed. As much as we are disappointed by Prince Saud Bin Abdul Aziz’s behavior, we are very much glad at the decision of King Salman, the custodian of the two holy mosques.
