French court seizing Saudi princess' items

NANTERRE, France, March 8 (UPI) -- A French court seized storage containers rented by a Saudi princess to help pay off millions of dollars worth of outstanding bills for goods and services.

The court in Nanterre, near Paris, sided with six creditors against Princess Maha al-Sudani, who the court was told had millions in unpaid bills for rental of two Rolls-Royce Phantoms, the hiring of "about 30 chauffeurs," dry cleaning clothing for herself and her staff and purchasing items from a chocolate shop, Radio France Internationale reported Friday.

The court ordered bailiffs to seize the princess' storage containers and sell off the contents to help pay off the creditors.

The report said the court's plan may be complicated by the princess' diplomatic immunity in France and the Saudi embassy's unwillingness to cooperate in the case.
