The king of Saudi Arabia Salman bin Abdul Aziz signed a decree about the arrest of Prince Saud bin Abdul Aziz bin Saud. He is suspected of abuse of subjects of the monarch.
The head of state ordered a thorough investigation into the incident, adding that a member of the ruling dynasty should remain in custody until the end of the trial.
Salman also noted that there can be no concessions to the Prince, whose conduct is unworthy. He expressed confidence that the court will announce the punishment in full accordance with Sharia law.
Note that the severe punishment of members of the ruling dynasty must demonstrate the subjects of the justice of the monarch. So, in October 2016 was the execution of a death sentence against Prince Turki bin Saud al-Kabir.
Three years earlier the Prince was found guilty of murder. According to the court, during the mass brawl in the district of al-Tumama on the outskirts of the capital Riyadh, he shot a man.
