Spanish court drops Saudi prince's rape case
Friday 30 March 2012
A court has dropped a rape case against a Saudi prince, saying his accuser's allegations were inconsistent.
Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, 57, was cleared by a court in Palma, Mallorca. The drugging and sexual assault of a Spanish model was alleged to have occurred aboard a yacht moored at Ibiza on 12 August 2008.
A judge closed the inquiry in 2010, citing a lack of evidence. But a higher provincial court accepted an appeal by the plaintiff and re-opened the inquiry.
