Don’t be THAT princess

Meshael Alayban, 42, was arrested and charged Wednesday July 10th, 2013 for allegedly keeping slaves in her Orange county, California residence.

Her arrest followed the complaint of a 30-year-old Kenyan woman who flagged down a bus and asked the driver for help.

The Kenyan woman said that Alayban said that she accepted a job with Alayban in Kenya in 2012, hoping to earn enough money to pay her daughter’s medical bills. Instead, Alayban transported her to the United States, confiscated her passport, held her captive against her will at her home and forced her to work almost round the clock for $200 a month, instead of the promised $1600 a month wage.

Upon investigating, police found four other women living and working in Alayban’s home, all of whom left voluntarily with officers, stating a desire to be free.

Because she confiscated the women’s passports and is accused of refusing to allow her accuser to leave, Alayban is charged with human trafficking.

Alayban, who faces up to 12 years in prison if convicted, is today free on 5 million dollar bail, paid by check, issued by Saudi Arabia officials. She has been ordered to wear a GPS tracking device until her hearing.

Alayban’s lawyer has argued that her bail was too high, and the case is unmerited, labeling the situation a “domestic work hours dispute.”

    There is a reason that those that run brothels are called “madam,” for almost all sex trafficking is run by women. Women excel in cruelty toward women.

      So true. Here’s a case I happen to be working on right at this moment: A Madam who starved and tortured girls (and some boys), murdered them (and, according to some reports fed their dismembered bodies to her cats).

        BTW, where can I find that piece about most serial killers being women, or something like that…? I couldn’t find it with google.

    Good gravy. $5 mil is a hell of a hook up. What a stinking pile.

    Four years ago the UN came out with findings that 60% of those arrested for human trafficking were women. Here’s the brief write-up I did of that report. http://glennsacks.com/blog/?p=3350

    As a Saudi princess living in the U.S., you can bet that Alayban has connections within the USG that will guarantee that she’ll either be on a plane back to Saudi Arabia very soon (to continue her human trafficking operations from there, with junkets back to the States once things “settle down”) or will be set free to return to her SoCal home and resume business as usual.

    Silly MHRAs. Women never had anything to do with slavery. You know her husband or father forced this on her.
