article imageSaudi Princess to have €12m of luxury goods seized for debt

By Katerina Nikolas     Mar 8, 2013 in World
Paris - A Saudi Princess who habitually runs up outlandish bills on luxury goods and hotel stays which she then neglects to pay, is to have goods worth €12 million seized on the order of a French judge.
Princess Maha Al-Sudairi, divorced wife of the late Saudi Crown Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, resides in a Parisian hotel where she enjoys diplomatic immunity. Her shopping sprees around the French capital, along with extravagant hotel stays, have resulted in unpaid bills of millions of euros.
Digital Journal reported that in June 2012 the princess was caught trying to leave the Shangri-La hotel in Paris in the early hours of the morning, without settling her €6 million bill. According to the Daily Mail Saudi King Abdullah refused to pay for her stay.
Six French creditors have now sued al-Sudairi for unpaid bills amounting to millions of euros. The Independent reported a French judge has ordered three lock up stores belonging to the al-Sudairi, containing "jewels, art-works, leather goods and clothes," to be cleared and the goods seized in order to pay her creditors. However, it may prove to be a protracted legal battle as al-Sudairi has diplomatic immunity.
