A Saudi prince and the manservant he is accused of murdering were believed to be gay because they colour coordinated the hanging of their trousers in their five star hotel room, a court heard yesterday. Dimitrov Dobromir, a porter at the Landmark Hotel in central London, said he helped Prince Saud Bin Abdulaziz Bin Nasir Al Saud move to a bigger room in January this year.
Days later, the prince allegedly battered and strangled his aide Bandar Abdulaziz during a sexually motivated attack in the hotel room they shared, Telegraph informs.
Hotel porter George Konis told the court yesterday he thought Bandar was treated like a slave by his boss. And he said he saw the aide looking "battered, bruised, beaten up".
He added: "I thought there was some form of relationship. They were both very camp."
Fellow porter Dobimir Dimitrov, who is gay himself, said he noticed the pair were not behaving like two heterosexual men because they were putting their clothes in colour-coded order on hangers, The Sun reports.
Assistant to the head of Chechnya for the power bloc Apty Alaudinov thanked the Western partners of Ukraine for the weapons supplied to Kyiv. According to him, they are becoming trophy.
