Paris bailiffs sent in over Saudi princess unpaid bills

PARIS, June 13, 2009 (AFP) - A Saudi princess alleged to have run up unpaid bills worth millions of euros in a Paris shopping spree has agreed to settle a 125,000-dollar tab after bailiffs turned up at her hotel, a lawyer said.

Upmarket clothes store Key Largo filed suit in a Paris court this week against Maha al-Sudairi, wife of Saudi Interior Minister Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz, over an outstanding bill of 89,000 euros (125,000 dollars).

Bailiffs turned up Friday 12 June at the George V luxury hotel, which is owned by Sudairi's nephew Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, after a court order authorised the seizure of her belongings, the store's lawyer Jacky Benazerah said late Friday 12 June.

"The Saudi Arabian consul was called out in person," he said.

French media reported the princess was holed up in her room at the four-star hotel just off the Champs Elysees while her staff wrangled with the bailiffs, although the George V would not confirm she was on the premises.

After three hours of talks, the princess' aides had handed over a guaranteed cheque of 89,000 euros, with a pledge the money would be transferred by Wednesday 17 June, said the lawyer.

Benazareh said he was told the bills went unpaid due to an oversight by her staff.

But the Saudi princess is alleged to have left a trail of unpaid bills at top Parisian locations including one for 10 million euros at the Crillon hotel, according to French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche.

Benazareh said Paris jewellers Chaumet has also taken legal action against the princess. The Journal du Dimanche says the store is owed more than 600,000 euros.

The manager of Luxury lingerie store "Aux caprices de Lili," which is just opposite the George V, told AFP the princess had run up a slate of 70,000 euros' worth of designer underwear, silk bathrobes and swimwear.
