A Saudi prince accused of murdering his servant in Britain could face the death penalty in his homeland over allegations of homosexuality, a London court heard on Friday. Saud Bin Abdulaziz Bin Nasir al Saud, 34, who is a grandson of Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah, is accused of killing Bandar Abdullah Abdulaziz in a top London hotel on February 15 after abusing him for weeks.
In my opinion, because of the brutal nature of the crime he committed he should be put to death when it's proven that he did commit the crime.

However, the world furor will not be over the fact that he faces the death penalty at all, but that he's a homosexual who committed a sadistic sex murder and will face the death penalty in his home country of Saudi Arabia.

My problem with it is that he wouldn't be put to death for being a vicious murderer, but they kill people for being homosexual. That's just wrong.

He will never be deported. He'll use the threat as a means to stay in Britian after his sentence is up.

You are very mistaken. Under Sharia law he will absolutely be executed for murder unless the man he killed is an unbeliever. The man he killed is also Moslem, so the prince will be beheaded at high noon in public the first Friday he returns to Saudi Arabia. He'll be smart to fight a return to Saudi. The Sharia makes no exceptions for royalty.

No exceptions for royalty? I doubt that. Royalty always makes exceptions for one of its own unless they are traitors or inconvenient.

Some cleric in Saudi Arabia will issue a fatwa and his life will get ended. Too bad for the wrong reason though.

This isn't "inconvenient?". They can't afford not to strictly follow the Sharia with this made public. They are not that secure in their positions vs the gray beards in Mecca.

The Saudis aren't much on fatwas, that's the Iranian mullahs.
