Prince Alwaleed Moved To Highest Security Saudi Prison After Refusing To Pay $6 Billion For Freedom: Report

Goodbye Ritz Carlton. Saudi Arabia's billionaire prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, has been carted off to Al Ha'ir prison, south of Riyadh, after refusing to pay  a reported $6 billion to Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman to secure his freedom, following a massive consolidation of power on November 4, 2017 in which over 300 princes, ministers and other elites were rounded up in an "anti-corruption" purge.

Sources told the Middle East Montior  that nearly 60 detainees were transferred to the most high security prison in the Kingdom. The prisoners include Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal as Prince Turki Bin Abdullah and a number of government officials who refused to make the large financial payments for their release.

Among those arrested on allegations of corruption is Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, the Saudi King's nephew who is worth more than $17bn according to Forbes, and owns stakes in Twitter, Lyft and Citigroup. According to a Daily Mail source, the crown prince had lulled Alwaleed into a false sense of security, inviting him to a meeting at his Al Yamamah palace, then sent officers to arrest him the night before the meeting.

'Suddenly at 2.45am all his guards were disarmed, the royal guards of MBS storm in,' said the source.

'He's dragged from his own bedroom in his pajamas, handcuffed, put in the back of an SUV, and interrogated like a criminal.

'They hung them upside down, just to send a message.

Purged princes and the like were taken to the Riydah Ritz Carlton Hotel, where they have reportedly been allowed to buy their freedom by giving up their billions in oil wealth for their lives.

As the Daily Mail reported in November, mercenaries purportedly employed by Academi - a successor to infamous US security contractor Blackwater, have been stringing up some of MBS’s “guests” at the Riyadh Ritz Carlton by their feet and savagely beating them during interrogations. The claims have spread rapidly on Arabic-language social media, and even Lebanon’s president Michel Aoun has accused MbS of using mercenaries.

Meanwhile, none of Prince Alwaleed's powerful friends appear to be coming to his defense. As CNBC points out:

One of the most stunning aspects of bin Talal's detention is how quiet his long list of influential friends have been about it. This week brought at least some mention of his plight with a statement from two former French presidents who expressed concern over Alwaleed's status. But let's face it: a few words from a couple of French ex-presidents is peanuts.

So now we have bin Alwaleed in an actual prison, with a government aggressively taking cash and assets, and still no significant outcry from his foreign friends.

Bin Salman came to power last summer after King Salman changed the order of succession and made Bin Salman crown prince. In addition to his "anti-corruption" puge to consolidate power and wealth, the country has embarked on an ambitious plan called "Vision 2030"- which aims to modernize Saudi Arabia and break its dependence on oil production, as well as combat human rights violations.



In late September,  Saudi Arabia took the unprecedented step of allowing women to drive“The royal decree will implement the provisions of traffic regulations, including the issuance of driving licenses for men and women alike,” the Saudi Press Agency said, according to Al Aribaya

Meanwhile, A Saudi Government panel has asked that all marriage contracts for girls under the age of 18 be approved by family courts - the latest step in a series of sweeping reforms under the lead of their new Crown Prince, Mohammad bin Salman. While falling short of outlawing child marriage, the request marks the first major legislation involving the long-standing practice primarily overseen by Saudi clerics and local judges - not family courts.

The proposed legislation was part of a series of recommendations by the Committee of Islamic and Judiciary Affairs last Monday, which also called for "competent" family courts to oversee premarital virginity tests for girls under 18.

“The committee acceded to have those under 18 submit their marriage contracts, as well as a pre-marital tests to a competent court to determine their case" -Councilwoman Dr. Eqbal Darandari

“Some Shoura members disagreed with this decision because they believed it meant we condone underage marriage," said Darandari, adding "Others suggested that only those between the ages of 16-18 can transfer their cases to a judge, and those below 16 cannot get married. Some members demanded this be applied to underage boys, as well.

Dr. Darandari is among several Saudi legislators who believe in an an age limit for underage girls' to marry. "Girls’ voices must be heard and their opinions taken into consideration. I don’t believe a pre-marital test is enough. In my opinion, I think we need a female committee — made of a doctor, lawyer, psychologist and social worker — that studies the girl’s state in order to assess whether or not she can get married.

She also warned of the damage which can occur to children who are forced into marriage.

Those that are fifteen or younger can undergo severe physical and psychological damage through marriageand they’re probably unequipped for it. I believe there should be sanctions to those who do not adhere to that, and in the case of a marriage during that delicate age, a girl’s right to demand a divorce if things don’t work out should be guaranteed.” -Dr. Eqbal Darandari

So there you have it - Bin Salman is attempting to modernize his country, while wrestling power from long-standing oil families. And for those who don't comply, it's off to prison where the beatings shall continue until morale improves.

I think he offered to give them EVERYTHING, but they didn't want to accept it.

He will be tortured to death in prison for attempting to murder the former prince now King of Saudi, with the full consent of the President of the United States of America because a bunch of US citizens died as a result.

Pity we can't just talk about this shit out in public. I don't like cloak and dagger bullshit. Realpolitik is better.

Nah, he will just encourage more secularism. The ME was at one time pretty damn secular and thus not so bad. It was their funding of fundamentalist Madrassas that really got the Islamists roiling.

It would be nice if they would abandon Islam altogether, or convert to Christianity.

Also, I don't think anyone believed it, and very few believe it not. It's just they got killed if they didn't pretend. With Christianity, the punishment for non-belief is just a little social isolation.

We really need to have free philosophy lessons open to the public on Sundays. Something to fill the void for those who choose not to espouse belief.

Alwaleed has always been Bill Clinton's butt-buddy-  the fact that the prince is now days from having his head lopped off shows that Bill has lost his pull....  Prince dumped a lot of the family's money into Bill's pockets, guess they finally figured out they have a zero ROI.....

Oh well, you're only as good as your last trade, dude-   so how's that Qatar slush fund looking now, Bill?

what tmoseley says below is so very true. so true that it's hard to believe that "they have reportedly been allowed to buy their freedom by giving up their billions in oil wealth for their lives." are there interviews with such people or do they also sign agreements like the one loretta lynch forced on the uranium one mole/whistleblower? hard to believe that all the money in switzerland, singapore, et. al. that may be beyond mbs's reach can't buy a hit on him that actually works, as opposed to the crazy clowns of las vegas.

Busy at the Herzliya troll farm, Shlomo?They gave you five IDs did they, you lucky Talmudist. Your high prayer of the year is Kol Nidre, right, the only one for which you stand up, and where you ask for permission to lie and cheat for the coming year.

The Saudi family are Iraqi Jews, and their doctrine of fake Islam, Wahhabism, was cobbled together by a Donmeh, a Turkish crypto-Jew, Abdul Wahhab.

There's a constant stream of Judaic poison onto ZeroHedge and a few other free speech sites, from you and your tribal kin. You've had the NSA to yourselves for quite a while. But imagine what might be in store if Americans are keeping score for themselves past your transparent proxy servers.

Sure, sure. All the problems of islam are caused by Jews, right? Arabs are cotton milk white. Hell, islam is originating from Mekka and arabs.

There is no fake islam. Wahhabism is pretty much the original doctrine. Kill and get killed for allah, commanded by allah.

Turkish-Jew(!) named "Abdul Wahab", the most arabic name ever?

The only donmeh-turks are those whose ancestors were raped by jihadi arabs 1000 years ago and now worship that false god. Turks fought islam from 750-1050 AD for 300 years but were overwhelmed at the end.

much of the old testament and some of the new and most of the history of organized religion are vulnerable on this count. if one just sees the current middle east through the prism of the thirty years war, the spanish inquisition, or the conquest of the belgian congo or the americas, all that pride and confidence in western values vanishes like the u.s. constitution after 9-11.

All books have a 'beginning' especially hi-S-tory books.

Religion is about control. You only have to read Unam Sanctam - 'Furthermore, we declare, we proclaim, we define that it is absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to the Roman Pontiff.'

'Subject' is a highly subjective word! Have you ever wondered how a 'person' is legally (not lawfully) tied to being a citizen and tied to Courts, the supposed 'justice' system, and so forth?  

The Roman Pontiff is 'supposedly' above everything and every person on this earth (and the rest) including governments, nations, kings...

In 1302 Pope Boniface issued his infamous Papal Bull Unam Sanctam––the first Express Trust. He claimed control over the whole planet which made him “King of the world”. It is not only the first trust deed in history but also the largest trust ever conceived, as it claims the whole planet and everything on it, conveyed in trust. In celebration, he commissioned a gold-plated headdress in the shape of a pinecone, with an elaborate crown at its base. The pinecone is an ancient symbol of fertility and one traditionally associated with Ba’al as well as the Cult of Cybele.  It also represents the pineal gland in the centre of our brains––crystalline in nature–– which allows us access to Source, hence, the 13-foot tall pinecone in Vatican Square. 

Pope Boniface VIII was the first leader in history to create the concept of a Trust, but the first Testamentary Trust, through a deed and will creating a Deceased Estate, was created by Pope Nicholas V in 1455, through the Papal Bull Romanus Pontifex. This is only one of three (3) papal bulls to include the line with the incipit “For a perpetual remembrance.” This Bull had the effect of conveying the right of use of the land as Real Property, from the Express Trust Unam Sanctam, to the control of the Pontiff and his successors in perpetuity. Hence, all land is claimed as “crown land”.  This 1st Crown is represented by the 1st Cestui Que Vie Trust, created when a child is born. It deprives us of all beneficial entitlements and rights on the land.

The 2nd Crown of the Commonwealth

The second Crown was created in 1481 with the papal bull Aeterni Regis, meaning “Eternal Crown”, by Sixtus IV, being only the 2nd of three papal bulls as deeds of testamentary trusts.

This Papal Bull created the “Crown of Aragon”, later known as the Crown of Spain, and is the highest sovereign and highest steward of all Roman Slaves subject to the rule of the Roman Pontiff. Spain lost the crown in 1604 when it was granted to King James I of England by Pope Paul V after the successful passage of the “Union of Crowns”, or Commonwealth, in 1605 after the false flag operation of the Gunpowder Plot. The Crown was finally lost by England in 1975, when it was returned to Spain and King Carlos I, where it remains to this day.  This 2nd Crown is represented by the 2nd cestui Que Vie Trust, created when a child is born and, by the sale of the birth certificate as a Bond to the private central bank of the nation, depriving us of ownership of our flesh and condemning us to perpetual servitude, as a Roman person, or slave.

The 3rd Crown of the Ecclesiastical See

The third Crown was created in 1537 by Paul III, through the papal bull Convocation, also meant to open the Council of Trent. It is the third and final testamentary deed and will of a testamentary trust, set up for the claiming of all “lost souls”, lost to the See.  The Venetians assisted in the creation of the 1st Cestui Que Vie Act of 1540, to use this papal bull as the basis of Ecclesiastical authority of Henry VIII. This Crown was secretly granted to England in the collection and “reaping” of lost souls. The Crown was lost in 1816, due to the deliberate bankruptcy of England, and granted to the Temple Bar which became known as the Crown Bar, or simply the Crown. The Bar Associations have since been responsible for administering the “reaping” of the souls of the lost and damned, including the registration and collection of Baptismal certificates representing the souls collected by the Vatican and stored in its vaults.

This 3rd Crown is represented by the 3rd Cestui Que Vie Trust, created when a child is baptized. It is the parents’ grant of the Baptismal certificate––title to the soul––to the church or Registrar. Thus, without legal title over one’s own soul, we will be denied legal standing and will be treated as things––cargo without souls––upon which the BAR is now legally able to enforce Maritime law.

The Cestui Que Vie Trust

A Cestui Que Vie Trust is a fictional concept. It is a Temporary Testamentary Trust, first created during the reign of Henry VIII of England through the Cestui Que Vie Act of 1540 and updated by Charles II, through the CQV Act of 1666, wherein an Estate may be effected for the Benefit of a Person presumed lost or abandoned at “sea” and therefore assumed “dead” after seven (7) years. Additional presumptions, by which such a Trust may be formed, were added in later statutes to include bankrupts, minors, incompetents, mortgages, and private companies. The original purpose of a CQV Trust was to form a temporary Estate for the benefit of another because some event, state of affairs, or condition prevented them from claiming their status as living, competent, and present, before a competent authority. Therefore, any claims, history, statutes, or arguments that deviate in terms of the origin and function of a CQV Trust, as pronounced by these canons, is false and automatically null and void.

A Beneficiary under Estate may be either a Beneficiary or a CQV Trust. When a Beneficiary loses direct benefit of any Property of the higher Estate placed in a CQV Trust on his behalf, he do not “own” the CQV Trust; he is only the beneficiary of what the Trustees of the CQV Trust choose to provide.  As all CQV Trusts are created on presumption, based upon original purpose and function, such a Trust cannot be created if these presumptions can be proven not to exist.

Since 1933, when a child is borne in a State (Estate) under inferior Roman law, three (3) Cestui Que (Vie) Trusts are created upon certain presumptions specifically designed to deny, forever, the child any rights of Real Property, any Rights to be free, and any Rights to be known as man or woman, rather than a creature or animal, by claiming and possessing their Soul or Spirit.

Words are more powerful than most people realize. For true meanings of words, a Law Dictionary is absolutely essential. 

And back to the beginning. Oops another book! This might upset the Vatican - 1500 Year Old Bible Confirms that Jesus Christ Was Not Crucified, Vatican In Awe…

Who is Trump upsetting?

...Imagine the irony? I am listening to this bizarre Confession-Apologia going on with one ear and tracking the news that the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) has been caught practicing for an assassination of Trump with the other ear. Oh, flutter, flutter.....who could imagine that the US Navy would be involved in such a plot? Anyone with a brain in their head. Why was there ever a British Territorial Government set up in our country? Answer: our commercial fleet needed the protection of the British Navy. Despite the fact that we have paid for it all, whose control is the US Navy under to this day? The Queen and her brood of hairy elves still command the US Navy, and the only reason they didn't physically overrun us in the wake of the so-called civil war they engineered on our shores was that the Russian Navy stood offshore and prevented it. Yes, Virginia, there is a reason for everything. There is a reason why a quarter of all the Admirals in the US Navy are under indictment for corruption---and the number may easily climb higher. Why? Because the US Navy (like the US NAVY, INC.) is the creature of England, just as it always has been, and England is always at the bottom of every nasty dog-pile since the time of Christ. Set your watch by it. Take it to the bank. Depend on it like snow in January. The Brits just can't keep their hands off of other people's stuff and their noses out of other people's business.

p.s Anna, just to let you know, my family and I are English (not that we are politically allowed to say that any more) and are being screwed just like you and the rest of the world. Most Brits do not have a clue about any of this. Whilst you have written complex info about how Americans can gain remedy, please can you offer the same detailed assistance for the rest of us around the world. I would also like to offer my sincere apologies to the world for what is happening, but I assure you the shenanigans started way before I and most other Brits were born and we had no clue (until recently) of what is happening. I think we are talking about a small proportion of the people of the UK centered around the City of London Corporation, the Temple BAR, the City of Westminster, the Queen, et al. Are there any UK groups out there working on this. Maybe we can work in unison?

Congress voted to move our embassy there over a decade ago.  Whose law do you speak of?

It's called the UN Charter, it's a treaty and the US is bound by it; hence, under the US Constitution, the act of moving the embassy to illegally occupied territories is unlawful.

Sure we have a lot of corrupt swamp toadies in Congress serving their ((masters)) in violation of international law time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time ... and time again.  But that doesn't mean that what these corrupt critters do is legal.  Check the US Constitution.
