Former Saudi Prince Lover Granted Reprieve From Oz Deportation 

Former Saudi Prince Lover Granted Reprieve From Oz Deportation 


A Lebanese man who says he had sex for money with a Saudi prince and now fears for his safety has escaped immediate deportation from Australia.

The man, who has not been named in the media, claims he received huge payments in exchange for secret royal liaisons and now says he's afraid to return to his home country out of fear that he will be persecuted for being gay.

According to court documents, the man says he left his partner in Lebanon in 2008 and journeyed to Saudi Arabia on a visa arranged by a prince who was attracted to him. In addition, the prince paid his travel expenses and provided "financial and material support" in exchange for sex. When the man was ordered to leave Saudi Arabia after an indiscretion involving a friend of the prince's, he fled to Melbourne.

While his request for a protection visa was initially rejected by Australia's Refugee Review Tribunal on the grounds that his story was peppered with "multiple inconsistencies," the Federal Magistrates' Court has ruled that the tribunal's decision was in error and ordered it to reconsider the request.
