  4. Planned months if not years before. Why? Follow The Money……..

    What does money buy? Anything (sick) that they want.

    #ThesePeopleAreEvil

  5. Furious? The #isis handlers and funders? So what did they do? They said to Trump and Erik Prince, we can still strike, and strike they did, in vegas.

  6. This is probably where they also keep terrorists in their soo called crackdown of "extremism". American tax payer dollar well spent. Saudi Arabia has America by the balls. A shame no American politician has any guts to stand up against Saudi Arabia for their sponsor of continuous terrorism like Al Qaeda and ISIS.

  7. It is all just a show to make it look like they are tackling corruption when in reality they are all in it together laughing at us while they make billions or they would be put in real prison with everyone ese, jokes on us people……

  8. I believe that Saudi Arabia need a french revolution an couple dozen guillotines, to get rid of that fuckin' family.

  9. if i was a billionaire, i wouldnt keep most of my fortune in the country i reside, then i could flee..i am surprised they were able to get all these rich guys without fleeing or voilence

  10. so i guess this is the money needed to pay for USA for all that shit weapons they dont need are being forced to buy..i think the saudia arabia did some serious shit wrong and are buying off america for it

  11. Man, I remember going to that same hotel with my family when I was 9. I still remember the kid’s area, and, I even dined with the adults, once.

    Amazing hotel

  12. This is all lies wtf their is no human rights there . You actually think their gonna throw you in a building like this where a doing have human rights haha you guys are fools

  13. Wow! More jails need to be located in a fancy hotel. You wouldn't have to arrest me, I'll just voluntarily go. Life must be tough being stuck in paradise.

  14. Well, I guess they thought they needed to get money from somewhere since they are losing billions daily and want to plunder Yemen for it's resources. So they steal from family and get other countries notorious for plundering and raping the land.

  15. The presenter,and her cameraman…..seemed to be petrified!!!,This much footage they could have got from the Hotels website/ virtual walkthroughs!!

  16. SODOMY ARABIA
    Yes it is Friday and so those long lines of young men robes up around their waists, on their knees, pants down around their ankles, mouths open and wearing the Kings bejeweled knee pads spill out of the narrow streets and alleys of old Riyadh, blocking traffic… .
    As described here:
    The Kingdom in the Closet
    Sodomy is punishable by death in Saudi Arabia, but gay life flourishes there. Why it is “easier to be gay than straight” in a society where everyone, homosexual and otherwise, lives in the closet

  17. Now show us which UK Lawfirms have conveniently stolen all the assets of the missing princes, +who has now taken over all the assets of these missing, in Saudi arabia? like all other governments, there are corrupt criminal network within, and they're just stealing billions, because it's cheap to pay foreign criminal to kidnap a Saudi who's assets are billions, than just take over their companies/properties/oil/gold bullion assets just as the UK Criminals stole gaddafi's family empire, legally ofcourse

  18. Since Scott Disick seems to be in Saudi posting pictures right now and since MBS is known to enjoy kidnapping people… maybe there's a room going spare in this gilded cage?

  19. with at least 146 executions in 2017 Saudi Arabia might actually not require a prison, people just refrain from committing crimes. Why someone would commit a crime? There no income taxes in Saudi Arabia and other Arab States, so all citizens never think of becoming a criminal.

  20. Why don’t the world understand that the whole Saudi Arabia people wants Political and life asylum from the rulers of Wahabis Saudi Arabia, the supporter of Terrorism ,ISIS. The American people is also and the world at large responsible for what’s happening in Saudi Arabia. Muslim from throughout the world should boycott UMRA and HAJ in protestor of Saudi Arabia policies in their country, especially their attitude and behaviour with respect to Journalist Jamal Khashoggi recent murder. Sequence of incidences HAPPENING TO ALA SAUD Government in the last few months due to their behaviour in the name of Islam. Their crime Starting from demolishing JANNAT UL BAQUE AND demolishing the Shrine grave of FATIMA BINT E MUHAMMED PBUH and the rest of Al- A-Muhammed and Prophet Sahabas . Continuous killing of the Saudi SHIA COMMUNITY IN KHATIF AREA AND harassment of Shia in Saudi Arabia in general. Killing of Shia Allim INNOCENT SHEIKH NIMR AL NIMR , RELATION WITH ISRAEL AND PREFERENCE ISRAEL OVER MUSLIM UMMAH.SPREADING WAHABISM AND SUPORTING TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS ARROUND THE WORLD. Sending Saudis forces to kill Baharanis Shia community in Bahrain. The recent killing of Saudi Journalist in Istanbul. Allah has shown and brought his wrath around MAKKAH area and many people died due stampede in which MUHAMMED BIN SALMAN WAS INVOLVED, then the crane fall, THE RAIN AND THE WIND BLASTED. THE RECENT COCKROACHES appeared all over the place in MAKKAH. Things will continue to happen in coming months and years, because of their HATRED TOWARDS MUHAMMED AND AL-E- MUHAMMED ( Family of Prophet Muhammed PBUH ). This Saudi Monarch is coming to the end sooner then this world ever think. And the true religion of ALLAH ISLAM WILL BENEFIT THE MUSLIMS AND THE REST OF THE WORLD. Justice with love, kindness, human and animals right and peace and only peace will prevail.

  21. This BBC News reporter thinks if she wispier and the same time walking without hijab inside Saudi Arabia's gilded prison can fool people or what?

  22. even the saudi criminals are enjoying a life of luxury, but innocent kids in Yemen are dying everyday!! As Ironic as it may sound

  23. Clarification for the less informed about the criminal regime of Saudi Arabia

    The disgusting and criminal Saudi regime took advantage to hitch a lift in the confusion of the recent attacks in Ceylon, to justify indecently the recent 37 executions, which were nothing more than murders, insinuating that the executioners were terrorists, but the truth is that they were political opponents of this bloody regime carried out by two murderous criminals and parasites of the Saudi people, father and son whose names are respectively Salman bin Abdulaziz and Mohammed bin Salman. Everything is valid to keep this regime of criminals standing.
    Sooner or later, the West World will must to break up diplomatic relations with these murderers that hould be caught and judged by International Court to crimes against Humanity.

    WELCOME THE REVOLUTION IN SAUDI ARABIA AGAINST THESE CRIMINALS PARASITES AND THEIR ATROCITIES THAT SOW THE TERROR IN THE COUNTRY.
    JMR
