Spending spree lands Saudi prince in court

The Saudi ambassador to Britain, Prince Mohammed bin Nawaf bin Abdul Aziz, has been ordered by a UK court to reimburse a personal assistant to the tune of $6.3 million for items bought on his behalf.

The court produced a 13-page list of items bought by Walid El Hage between 2004-2005 while working as an assistant to Bin Nawaf, who was ambassador to Italy at the time. El Hage claims to have picked up bills from the prince’s trips to Rome, Vienna, Casablana and Paris, paying for hotels, cars and security guards.

The list also includes a Beretta pistol, plus a range of other weapons, a thermal night vision kit for a Hummer, ivory tusks, two karaoke machines and dozens of designer watches. A fleet of Yamaha Grizzly and Big Bear quad bikes was also listed, along with a fashion must-have Birkin bag, off-road rally car and Persian rugs.

According to the Guardian newspaper the prince was ordered to repay the money last month after he ignored court proceedings. However he has since issued a statement saying “we are currently in negotiations and we expect the matter to be settled amicably very shortly.”


Saudi considers revaluation


Saudi Arabia could consider revaluing the riyal with other Gulf oil producers, but has no plans to drop its peg to the sliding dollar to track a currency basket, a source familiar with Saudi currency policy said.

Any revaluation by the world's biggest oil exporter would be "very small" and designed to keep plans for Gulf monetary union alive.

The Saudi government could consider revaluing the currency, the source said. Until now, the kingdom has never said it would review the riyal's exchange rate, which the central bank has kept stable at 3.75 to the dollar since June 1986.


Saudi pledges $300mn to climate change research

Top world oil exporter Saudi Arabia will give $300 million for research into helping the environment by lowering emissions, its head of state King Abdullah said on Saturday.

The idea of funding research into ways to curb emissions while allowing the continued use of fossil fuels has been floated in forums ahead of the summit.
