PARIS, France

Saudia Arabia’s Princess Hassa bint Salman will face trail on July 9, 2019 for allegedly ordering her bodyguard to beat up a workman in the French capital Paris in her apartment on the ultra-expensive Avenue Foch in September 2016.

According to a legal source, the Princess Hassa during the assault shouted to her bodyguard: “Kill him, the dog, he doesn’t deserve to live.”

The verbal and brutal assaults started when the alleged victim said he was hired to carry out refurbishment work at the Princess’ apartment and that she became angry after he took a photograph, accusing him of wanting to sell it to the media.

He added that the princess then ordered the bodyguard to beat him up. He was then punched in the face, his hands were tied and forced to kiss the princess’s feet during an hours-long ordeal. His tools were later confiscated before he was allowed to leave.

The victim further asserts that he sustained severe injures which forced his superiors to grant him an off for eight days. The bodyguard was later charged on October 1, 2016 with armed violence, theft, issuing death threats and holding someone against their will.
