London: Saudi Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal is defending his handling of the 2005 sale of a jet to the late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in a London court.

Prince Al Waleed is being sued by a Jordanian businesswoman who claims she is owed a £6.5 million (Dh36.30 million) commission for helping arrange the sale.

Appearing in the High Court yesterday, Prince Al Waleed denied that he had agreed to pay a specific commission to consultant Daad Sharab.

She claims the prince, a nephew of King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz, agreed to the commission during a meeting at Gaddafi’s tent in Libya.
