One of the world’s richest men and biggest investors, Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, has just redefined the word ‘Luxury’. During a crackdown on corruption, the Saudi Arabian prince, whose Kingdom Holding company has held major stakes in Fox, Time Warner, Citigroup, Twitter, Apple, Arab satellite TV networks, and more, has been detained for over 80 days. There have been a lot of rumors circulating his whereabouts, until he was interviewed by Reuters in Ritz-Carlton hotel in Riyadh.
The viral video shows Prince Talal giving his interviewer a tour of a luxurious suite where he has been kept all this time. “I’m very comfortable because I’m in my country, I’m in my city, so I feel at home,” he said. From vegan diet meals and swimming to contacting his office on daily basis, the prince confirmed that all of his needs were met.
It is widely assumed that Al-Waleed bin Talal and other high profile detainees were released after being cleared or agreeing to hand over significant assets to the government.
