Dispute over Saudi princess mysterious death

Cairo, August 26: Hours after the death of Hind Al Fassi, a Saudi princess who had been living with her family in Cairo, her brother and husband got involved in a heated dispute inside the hospital where she passed away. Their disagreement soon developed into a legal tug-of-war.

"I have some proof, which I want to bring to the attention of investigators," Aalal Al Fassi, Hind's brother, said.

He added that he suspects that her son and daughter as well as their father Prince Turki Bin Abdul Aziz, the brother of Saudi King Abdullah, had killed her.

Hind, 52, died on Sunday at a hospital outside Cairo after a sharp drop in blood pressure, according to medical reports. "The hospital also can be involved in this fishy incident," Aalal said.

Egyptian prosecutors have started investigating his claims after Al Fassi filed a formal complaint.

"When I wanted to have a final look at my sister's body in the intensive care unit, I was prevented by her son and the doctors in the hospital," Alal said.

Meanwhile, Abdul Rahman, son of Hind, filed an official complaint accusing his uncle Aalal of beating him and his father up in the hospital.

Hind was buried in Cairo on Monday in a funeral attended by the Saudi ambassador.

She was the second wife of Prince Turki, who once served as the governor of the Saudi capital and the deputy of the Saudi Minister of Defence and Aviation.

In yet another twist in the family drama, Aalal's lawyer was quoted yesterday in Egyptian newspapers as saying that his client had been abducted by unknown people who posed as security personnel before he was to go to the prosecutor's office "to furnish hard evidence about his sister's death".

Abduction

"The abductors took my client aboard a private plane to outside Egypt," added the lawyer Shaaban Saleh. There was no immediately comment in Egypt on the claims.

Al Fassi's family had lived in a hotel in Cairo for years before moving to another hotel outside the Egyptian capital. Their extravagant lifestyle and disputes with servants often made headlines in newspapers.
