Saudi Prince Held in Record Beirut Airport Drug Bust

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

A Saudi prince and four others were detained on Monday in the largest drug bust in the history of the Beirut airport, a security source said.

Saudi prince Abdel Mohsen Bin Walid Bin Abdulaziz and four others were detained by security at Rafik Hariri International Airport while allegedly "attempting to smuggle about two tons of Captagon pills and some cocaine," a security source told AFP.

"The smuggling operation is the largest one that has been foiled through the Beirut International Airport," the source said on condition of anonymity.

Captagon is the brand name for the amphetamine phenethylline, a synthetic stimulant. The banned drug is consumed mainly in the Middle East and has reportedly been widely used by fighters in Syria.

The security source said the drugs had been packed into cases that were waiting to be loaded onto a private plane that was headed to Saudi Arabia.

The five Saudi citizens were still in the airport and would be questioned by customs authority, the source added.

In April 2014, security forces foiled an attempt to smuggle 15 million capsules of Captagon hidden in shipping containers full of corn from Beirut's port.

The National News Agency said the private plane was to head to Riyadh and was carrying 40 suitcases full of Captagon.

Saudi Arabia's large royal family has had past run-ins with authorities in various countries.

Late last month, a Saudi prince was arrested in Los Angeles for allegedly trying to force a woman to perform oral sex on him at a Beverly Hills mansion.

But authorities decided not to pursue the charge, citing a lack of evidence.

In 2013, a Saudi princess was accused in Los Angeles of enslaving a Kenyan woman as a housemaid, but the charges were also eventually dropped.

i already commented that on the post you mentioned but let me repeat : saudis are just like iranians, both use death sentences for crimes that wouldn't even be punished in western countries; both are retarded regimes ... the big difference is that you support a retarded regime while i denounce both....

you close your eyes for iran but suddenly open them for saudis when both countries are to blame... that is called hezbi double standards that you religiously apply....

Where is "occupied" Shebaa Farms in all of this or liberating Syria takes precedence?

نشرت صحيفة النهار عن مواقع التواصل الاجتماعي القريبة من ميليشيا حزب الله اللبناني بيانات نعي ثمانية قتلى جدد من عناصرها قتلوا في سوريا أثناء العمليات الهجومية النوعية في إدلب، حسب ما أوردت المواقع.
والقتلى هم: "حسين غازي الرشعيني من بلدة الكويخ - مدينة بعلبك، وحسن علي نايف حلاوي من بلدة كفركلا الجنوبية، وعلي عبدالله شعيتو، من بلدة الطيري الجنوبية، وعلي السيد محمد خشفة، من مدينة القطراني الجنوبية، وسامي حسين شريفة، من مدينة النبطية الجنوبية، وحمد سعيد فواز، من بلدة جباع الجنوبية، وحسن علي نايف حلاوي، من بلدة كفركلا الجنوبية وعلي فواز، من الجنوب.

hezbollah will not liberate shebaa farms as it would mean they cannot make their lying business about resisting israel that is occuying Lebanon! and they promised a few years ago that they would hand over their weapons to the army once Lebanon is liberated.... but they will find other excuses to keep them and weaken the lebanese army.... as usual

Thumb _mowaten_ 26 October 2015, 18:03

barrymoar: preventing the CIA-backed s3oodi-bought barbarians from surrounding lebanon and stabbing the resistance in the back can indeed take precedence over anything else. israelis are deterred in the south, they will not attack directly because they are not ready to pay the price of such an adventure. this is why they are sending the "expendables", poor brainwashed arabs/muslims from the 4 corner of the world, radicalized by wahhabi takfiri ideology can be used as cannon fodder and their blood is cheap for israelis.

Thumb janoubi 26 October 2015, 18:05

it was never about Lebanon or Shebaa Farms. Nassrallah openly acknowledges he is a soldier in wilayat al faqih and his party is the party of waliyat al faqih. Sheba farms is just an excuse for nassrallah to keep his weapons and use them wherever and whenever the mullahs in Iran order him to do.

Thumb _mowaten_ 26 October 2015, 18:06

peace: you were asked what you ever did for this country and the answer is resounding silence. you're not in position to whine about hezbollah not doing enough to your taste. either do it yourself if you think you can do better, or peace off and let those who are able and willing do what they do.

Thumb _mowaten_ 26 October 2015, 18:09

janoubi (by which you mean from south of the border certainly) hezbollah doesnt need an excuse for anything, as they have their actions speaking louder than any speech or argument. shebaa farm is still under occupation and we will get it back, it's only a matter of time. like for the south of lebanon, israelis laughed, their pawns in lebanon laughed, thinking hezbollah could never free it, until they ran off during the night only leaving a trail of panic in their wake.

pityful mooowaten still defending his iranian militia.... what do you do for you country except cheering a foreign militia that pledged allegiance to iran ? i support the army unlike you. i support a state which is the ONLY one to decide of the fate of a whole nation not in a foreing militia to decide for me! i support the fact that your militiamen should join the national army the only force that should defend our nation, not a foreign militia... so you should rather be ashame to support a foreign party rather than the national army who is the only force i recognize to defend Lebanon!

Thumb _mowaten_ 26 October 2015, 18:42

all words, in reality you dont support the army:
-you distrust their judgement when they themselves consider hezbollah an ally
-you wish for them to lose their most reliable ally in the fight against takfiris, which even armies like the syrian, and iraqi ones are struggling
-you wish for them to pick a fight with said ally, putting them in even greater danger. even if this would never happen, that is the reality of what you wish and call for.

you're just hiding behind false pretenses, all you care about is the visceral hatred you have for hezbollah, and you're ready to sacrifice the lebanese army and lebanon as a whole for the sake of it.

Thumb _mowaten_ 26 October 2015, 18:43

if that's what supporters do, better have more enemies than supporters like this!!

Thumb _mowaten_ 26 October 2015, 19:12

proof again that you never hear or read what we say, and instead answer whatever you wish we had said. i never said the army is weak, i always said the army itself is not safe from s3oodi-bought/CIA-backed politicians who prevent it from doing what needs to be done. under US pressure they signed "treaties" banning the army from getting any type of weapon that could threaten israel for instance, what is that if not treason?
not to mention all the politicians who rushed to aid the israelis in 2006 and who were exposed in the wikileaks, these traitors would turn in every hezbollah weapon and fighter the instant they are under their control. do you think we're that dumb that we dont see clearly in your games and hypocrisy?

Missing peace 26 October 2015, 19:18

very patriotic indeed you are.... you just show how much you prefer to put your faith in a political foreign party than in the state of Lebanon...
that it is not to the army to decide but to you as its commanding does not suit your interests...
"do as hezbollah says" is your motto.. weapons from saudis is not in our interest so we decide that the army is backed by the cia! LOL no wonder since your binary mind makes you think this way.

takfiris do the same with their raping orgies and buying and selling of sex slaves, and plenty of reports by their victims, former members and informers have said they abuse all sorts of psychoactive substances.

The ISF anti drug unit released a statement a few moments ago detailing the operation carried out at the airport in which it exonerated Prince Abdel Mohsen Bin Walid Bin Abdelaziz from any and all charges in the matter. The ISF further explained the Prince's assistant of 15 years and a confidente , Mr. Mahdi Hussain Moqdad, a Lebanese Shia ( on Passport ) used his position with the honorable Prince to smuggle a huge amount of Captagon pills into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia without the Price's knowledge.

Mr. Moqdad confessed without further delay he belonged to the international terror group known as Hezbollah. He further revealed he was instructed by the terror party's leader to market the drugs in order to finance he party's terror activities.

Hezbollah is a known terrorist organizations with links to organized crime, money laundering, political assassinations, and drug trafficking.
