Saudi prince in court over death of servant

A Saudi prince appeared in court today to deny murdering a servant in a five-star London hotel.

Saud bin Abdulaziz bin Nasir bin Abdulaziz al Saud, 33, is accused of beating 32-year-old Bandar Abdullah Abdulaziz at the Landmark Hotel in Marylebone.

The multi-millionaire also denied inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent on his servant on January 22, three weeks before the killing.

Al Saud spoke only to confirm his name and enter his not guilty pleas on both counts at the High Court. Mr Justice Bean remanded him in custody until his trial on 4 October at the Old Bailey.
