Children of SL, other countries traded as sex slaves: Saudi Princess

13 November 2017 05:06 pm - 25     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Saudi Princess Amira Bint Aidan Bin Nayef has revealed that children, especially the orphans, from countries like Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Djibouti, Somalia, Nigeria, Romania and Bulgaria had been bought and rented as sex slaves in Saudi, Dhaka Tribune reported on Sunday.  

Giving exclusive statements to the French Newspaper Le Monde, she has said slavery in Saudi Arabia had different forms, but it was done in secrecy and permitted only among the primary beneficiaries of the princes of the House of Saud.

Princes Aidan is the ex-wife of the Saudi Prince Al Waleed bin Talal, who was recently arrested in scope of the anti-corruption purges in the country. 

She said those who accuse others of corruption and money laundering are in fact highly corrupted themselves.

Russian online news portal Fort Russ has reported quoting Aidan’s interview on Le Monde that the corrupted had turned the city of Jeddah into a slave market where underage girls are being exploited for sex parties involving drug and alcohol abuse.

Princes Aidan said that one of the main reasons why this keeps going on was that the members of the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice (Saudi Sharia police) tend to keep away from the matter, fearing they might lose their jobs, should they intervene.

The newspaper quoted the princess as saying that a Hallowen event was recently held in Jeddah, and which was attended by 150 people, including employees of the consulates.

The scene had been like a typical nightclub anywhere outside the Kingdom, with available wines, dancing couples in fancy costumes and a DJ.

Bint Aidan said the children become the property of those who buy them and are not allowed to leave without permission.

Even the Asian maids who come to work often find themselves in a kind of slave-like position. Young girls are divided into smaller groups and exploited for immoral acts.

Trafficking of white women and exploiting them for sexual practices is also relatively common, the article said.

    Your highness, 2 things you can do besides giving interview on this topic. 1) Find the children if any and hand them to the embassay staff. 2) Take action against your own people who are involved.

    Even though she is a princess, she may not have that kind of power due to the legal system there.

    Arnold Monday, 13 November 2017 06:18 PM

    Why not arrest the traffickers?

    She is so pretty!

    Let's be realistic and in my opinion she is coming out with this story only after her husband is arrested. Look princess by not coming forward with the facts you are also guilty and you are also guilty of trying to divert the attention. Please next time try to do better. As a nation of civilized people we must also take the responsibility for allowing such trafficking of underage children

    Our government should ensure that slavery of any kind is stopped. Only the remittances are taken. Expatriate remittances have been the main contributor to our economy for many years. They send some 8 billion US dollars a year. Better than the export earnings from Garments and Tea.
