Wearing a black suit, vest, white shirt and tie, a Saudi prince stood before the Lebanese Criminal Court Wednesday on charges of attempting to smuggle Captagon pills from Beirut to Saudi Arabia. Prince Abdul-Mohsen bin Walid bin Saud bin Abdul-Aziz al-Saud was summoned by the court's head, Judge Abdel-Rahim Hammoud. Once called to stand before the court, the prince's handcuffs were removed. Hammoud asked the prince's lawyer, Ali Mando, to present to the court with documentation that Abdul-Mohsen's lead counsel, Beshara Abu Saad, had approved of Mando's representation of the prince. Hammoud also requested that Sabeh present the court with proof that Shamri's original lawyer, Elie Kahwagi, accepted Sabeh's representation of the suspect when Kahwagi is unable to attend.
