  • Ethiopian woman told London Court that Sarah Al-Amoudi is former prostitute originally from Ethiopia

    * On July 24, 2013, Negat Ali, an Ethiopia-born south London furniture dealer, claim Sarah was a former prostitute originally from Ethiopia. 

    *Sarah Al amoudi claims to be daughter of Ethiopian-born Billionaire Al-Amoudi as reported by Sodere Team, first among Ethiopian media, on July 13, 2013.


    *I'm so rich I spent £1m on perfume in two months, says Saudi 'princess' accused of swindling London property developers

    Mystery: Sara Al Amoudi is being sued for £14million


    By NEIL SEARS

    A supposed Saudi princess claimed yesterday that she is so wealthy she has splashed out almost £1million on perfume in the past two months.

    Her spree has created an Aladdin’s cave-style display of opulence which has to be seen to be believed, the High Court heard.

    Sara Al Amoudi is accused of being a one-time penniless Ethiopian prostitute who posed as a princess to swindle London property developers Amanda Clutterbuck and Ian Paton out of luxury flats worth £14million.

    But yesterday the mysterious ‘princess’ – whose age has been given as between 31 and 45 – wept in court as she assured the judge she had never been an impoverished prostitute, that her wealth was genuine and that she had been on the shopping sprees to prove it.

    Miss Al Amoudi, who arrived at the London court in a Rolls Royce with numberplates reading ‘HRH’, told judge Sarah Asplin her shopping addiction was so serious she had sought medical help.

    In heavily accented English, Miss Al Amoudi said: ‘I have a problem with shopping – I go to doctor. In the last two months my perfume, only the perfume – $1.4million (£912,000). I can show you the pictures.’

    Miss Al Amoudi arrived at court in a full burka and five-inch platform heels. 

    At the suggestion of the judge she removed her veil in the witness box, but still attempted to keep her face hidden from onlookers. 

    She claims she had an affair with her alleged victim Mr Paton, 45, behind the back of his lover and business partner Miss Clutterbuck, 56, and that he borrowed and stole some £5million of pocket money she received from Saudi Arabia.


    She also insists that when six exclusive flats in Knightsbridge and Chelsea were signed over to her name, it was simply repayment for his thefts and loans.

    But Mr Paton and Miss Clutterbuck say she swindled them by pretending she had millions to invest in a massive property project – allegedly claiming to be an estranged wife of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah, 88 – and are demanding £14million from her.

    Yesterday, Miss Al Amoudi insisted ‘in the name of Allah’ that she was an honest woman given some £10million in cash by her family in the past decade.

    She claimed she kept money hidden under her bed and entrusted Mr Paton with half her cash for ‘safekeeping’, and insisted her only problems were wild spending.


    Miss Al Amoudi said: ‘I’m afraid I’m addicted to spending money, and get through enormous amounts of cash. I can easily spend £50,000 to £100,000 in one spree.’ 

    At any one time she would have ‘a minimum of £100,000 and sometimes £400,000’ stashed under a piece of carpet beneath her bed, she said.

    She added that in Saudi Arabia she was considered ‘like a criminal’ because she had an adulterous relationship, so her family had to send her pocket money in cash stuffed into suitcases.

    Miss Al Amoudi claimed she married at 13 to a man she refused to name, saying that he was now a threat to her life and that of her 13-year-old daughter.

    But she claimed her ‘lover’ Mr Paton took advantage of her and that now he and Miss Clutterbuck were lying about her.

    Miss Al Amoudi said: ‘They say I’m a prostitute. It’s not true. I swear to Allah I’m not liar.’ She said Mr Paton was a drug user. He denies taking crack cocaine.

    Miss Al Amoudi was accused by a male model boyfriend in a previous criminal case of having regularly drunk herself into a stupor at nightclubs. 

    But yesterday, when asked by Stuart Cakebread, barrister for the plaintiffs: ‘Do you drink?’, she said: ‘I will not answer this question because I’m a Muslim woman.’

    The court had earlier heard witness Negat Ali, an Ethiopia-born south London furniture dealer, claim the defendant was a former prostitute originally from Ethiopia. 

    She claims she came forward after seeing a picture of Miss Al Amoudi’s unveiled face in the Daily Mail.

    Miss Ali claimed she first met the ‘princess’ in 1985 when Miss Al Amoudi was operating under a different name and was helping her mother run a restaurant in the Yemen notorious for luring in rich men and conning them. She said they fell out later after Miss Al Amoudi failed to repay a £500 loan.

    Miss Ali denied being a disgruntled former maid of the ‘princess’.

    The case continues.

  • Up to 129% salary increase: details of gov’t employees salary increase

    By Muluken Yewondwossen, Capital Ethiopia

    The government has significantly raised the salaries of civil servants and the topic has excited the nation, even though the amount of the increases has not officially been disclosed. However, according to a document Capital obtained, the salary of government employees is doubled. Workers at the bottom of the pay scale will see their salary grow by 129 percent, while others with higher salaries have also gotten about a 76 percent raise.
    Civil servants have secured a very impressive and unprecedented salary increment. Three weeks ago Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn disclosed that the government will increase salaries of state employees as of this month (the beginning of the budget year). The exact sum has not officially been confirmed. Sources close to the issue told Capital that the amount the government added is significant and as high as 129 percent.
    According to the new salary rate, the minimum starting salary has been raised to 1,031 birr from 450 birr and the ceiling amount has reached 11,713 birr, for professionals.
    Experts indicated that the minimum salary for sub professionals’ that previously stood at 450 birr, has now grown to 1,031 birr, which is a 129 percent increase.
    The starting salary for professionals and scientific or fresh graduates that was 1,499 birr has now risen to 2,649 birr, which is about a 76 percent increase.
    The previous maximum basic salary for professional and scientific recruits was 4,343 birr and now it has been raised to 7, 815 birr, which is also about a 76 percent rise.
    According to the new salary scale that Capital obtained the minimum salary increase is not lower than 76 percent, even though the percentages vary on different levels.
    Civil servants, who were earning the lower amounts, have secured the biggest raise.
    Experts said that the percentage of the new pay raise is much higher than in the past.
    Four years ago the government raised salaries for civil servants and then after that it also increased pay for teachers.
    When the PM announced the salary hike during the Civil Service Day Celebration held at the African Union Conference Hall on June 23, he said that the government decided to increase its employees’ pay starting from the first month of the budget year (July 8, 2014) aiming to inspire them to engage in the nation’s development.
    “It is intended to improve the working atmosphere as well as the living conditions of civil servants,” Hailemariam said.
    “The increase will be made with consideration to the government’s financial capacity, in a way that avoids awakening inflation or disturbing the stability of the economy,” Hailemariam added.
    He said that the increase was approved about a year ago, but the government suspended it with the intention of seeing the trend of the inflation remain in single digits.
    Even though there are not accurate statistics, the number of civil servants in the country is believed to be about 1.3 million.
    Since the government disclosed the salary increase three weeks ago price hikes and new tariffs are being observed in some market places. Some experts say that the inflation may return, but the government is dismissing fears of price hikes. It also stated that price hikes and inflation would not be seen in relation with the salary increase.
    Some of the government bodies also stated they would take legal action against traders who impose artificial price hikes on the public. Early this week the Trade Competition and Consumers’ Protection Authority announced that consumers are informing the authority about price increases related to the pay raise of civil servants. In a statement that the authority sent to Capital it reiterated that it will take legal measures against the traders who apply price hikes without any economic reason. The authority also advised the public to inform them by calling a 8478 toll free line when they perceive that price hikes are occurring.
    Due to fears of artificial price hikes the newly organized wholesale public enterprise, Alle, has disclosed that it will terminate the contract of retail traders if they sell consumer products at high rates.

  • Pregnant woman caught having sex with hubby in hospital bed while waiting for baby to be induced

    By Lucy Hilton, Mirror

     

    A hospital cleaner was given a shock when she caught a heavily pregnant woman and her husband having sex while waiting to have their baby induced.

     

    The couple were caught out by cleaner who heard moaning coming form a private room on the maternity ward.

     

    But, much to her surprise, she was informed that such amorous behaviour isn't against the rules at St Michael's Hospital in Bristol.

     

    In fact, bosses encourage partners to simply put a 'do not disturb' sign on the door if they're feeling frisky and want to get physical.

     

    St-Michaels-Hospital-in-BristolA source at hospital told The Sun: "Other patients on the unit heard the commotion and were upset. The cleaner was utterly shocked.

     

    "She was amazed to be told it was OK. The hospital's advice appears to be just to put a sign up — amazing."

     

    A hospital spokeswoman said: "Staff work hard to ensure privacy and dignity is maintained for all patients.

     

    "Thankfully, we have not received any complaints or concerns in regard to this matter."
