Police found bank deposits receipts worth Dh1.2m and expensive four-wheel car with him
Saudi police arrested an Arab man for begging although he had in excess of SR1.2 million (Dh1.2 million) and an expensive four-wheel vehicle.
Police said the unnamed man, a resident of a nearby Gulf country, is visiting the Gulf kingdom on a tourist visa with his wife and three children, adding that he was found to be staying in a luxury furnished apartment in the Western Saudi port of Yanbu.
We found large sums of cash with him and receipts for bank deposits he had a total of more than SR1.2 million and an expensive four-wheel car carrying plates issued from another Gulf country, police spokesman Colonel Fahd Al Ghannam said, quoted by the Saudi Arabic language daily Okaz.
We also found that he is staying with his family at a luxury furnished apartment he was arrested after he was caught begging in the street.
Begging in strictly banned in Saudi Arabia and other Gulf oil producers. A large number of beggars, mostly foreigners, have been arrested and deported by these countries.
I have one of those expensive four wheel cars. Well mine has four wheels anyway.
A panhandler with $300K in the bank is a very diligent (and thrifty) one.
He apparently has, ‘Drinking money’...
We also found that he is staying with his family at a luxury furnished apartment”
Beggars can’t be choosers.
...”You don’t become rich by accident’....
In Saudi and the big oil countries you simply marry into the family.....which is gigantic....and a reason why they have mulitudes of wives and children. Spreading the wealth around.
Which Supreme Court Justice is it that wants to adopt international laws? Well, here is a good Saudi law to adopt.
