This is not the first time that the Saudi royal family finds itself facing the French judiciary. In March 2013, the French judiciary ordered the confiscation of the property of Maha al-Sudairy, the wife of former Crown Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud (died in 2012), in France for failing to pay bills.

Saudi Princess Maha al-Sudairy was found in the middle of a scandal after her stay in Paris between 22 December 2011 and 17 June 2012, accused of leaving the luxurious Shangri-La Hotel in Paris with 60 people accompanying her without paying a bill of 6 million euro.

The appointment of Prince Mohammed bin Salman, crown prince in 2017, boosted hopes of reforms in the kingdom, but his reputation was damaged after the killing of Saudi opposition journalist Jamal Khashoggi at his consulate in Istanbul.

Last month, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on arbitrary executions, Agnes Kalamar, referred to the existence of "credible evidence" of Mohammed bin Salman's relationship to Khashoggi's death.
