The former princess who died suddenly, the royal family in the Middle East is bloody

   According to the “Mirror” news on June 1, on May 31, local time, 45-year-old former Qatari princess Cassia Galaño died in an apartment where she currently lived in Marbella, Spain. Diagnosed as drug overdose.
   It seems reasonable and fleeting lace news that a divorced princess living in a foreign country uses “poison” to drown her sorrows and accidentally overdose. But one of Cassia’s friends resolutely spoke out after hearing the news of her death: Cassia has never had the habit of taking drugs, and is a person who is resolutely opposed to drugs. “I know her very well, she is a very good person, and everyone who knows her likes her very much.”
   Even after getting rid of the “friend filter”, this has always been with her ex-husband, Prince Abdulaziz Ben of Qatar. · The former princess of Khalifa Al Thani’s custody lawsuit is now at the most critical stage of the judgment. It is reasonable to say that she should not be a master who is indulged to the end. These oddities and coincidences make “reasonableness” full of suspense.
   It is worth noting that Abdulaziz is a “Prince in Exile”, a member of the failed domestic court power struggle. After the “Arab Spring”, the six absolute monarchies of the Gulf countries are still standing today. Professor David Roberts, who studies defense and foreign policy at King’s College London, believes that countries in key geographic positions and with important resources are usually assisted by external powers to maintain a certain stable system. The six absolute monarchs in the Gulf region are, to a certain extent, proxies for maintaining regional stability for the Western powers.
   The royal families and upper classes of these countries have accumulated a lot of wealth by collaborating with Western forces, but they have maintained the traditional values ​​and family structure of Arab society. Because Western countries have always been dependent on it for energy, some outrageous things of the Arab royal family, as well as some behaviors that completely deviate from the so-called liberal and democratic values ​​advocated by the West, are also tolerated by Western countries with a closed eye. The death of Qatar’s divorced princess may give us a glimpse into the inner workings of the royal family in the Middle East.
   The three daughters cannot freely choose to live with their mother in a father whose money and power are in his hands.
  leave without saying goodbye
   On May 29 this year, Cassia’s youngest daughter called the Spanish police from Paris, saying that she had been unable to contact her mother Cassia for many days, and hoped that the police could go to her mother’s apartment to have a look.
   In the apartment, the police saw Cassia, who was long dead. There was no sign of a fight in the room. After a preliminary investigation, the police determined that the cause of death was “drug overdose”.
   Anyone who is familiar with Cassia, or only has a little knowledge of her through rumors, can realize that Cassia’s departure is untimely: she is not a drug addict, and she will not choose on the eve of a possible reunion with her daughter. Died – in various media reports on the cause of Cassia’s death, everyone tacitly expressed caution and cautiously accepted the cause of her “drug overdose” death.
   As the third wife of the Prince of Qatar, Cassia and Abdulaziz’s marriage lasted only 3 years, and the custody battle after the divorce has now been pulled for nearly 15 years – if there is no accidental death, This incomparably long old lawsuit will be finally settled in the second half of this year at the latest.
   Cassia and Abdulaziz are fighting for custody of their three daughters. Among them, a pair of twin daughters are 17 years old and the youngest daughter is 15 years old. After marriage problems, Cassia asked Abdulaziz for the custody of her daughters several times, and she also repeatedly asked for the qualifications to meet with her daughters, but Abdulaziz always believed that Cassia was “Is an alcoholic with mental health issues,” limiting her presence in front of her daughters.
   Cassia needs to completely sacrifice her life and freedom in exchange for gold coins in her husband’s hands.
   Today, the three daughters live with Abdulaziz in a luxury villa in Paris. The three daughters are not free to choose to live with their mother in a father whose money and power are in his hands.
   In order to regain her daughters, in her last hearing before her death, Cassia produced key evidence: Abdulaziz had threatened one of the daughters.
   Abdelaziz, 73, has denied the allegations, but the Paris prosecutor’s office has now launched an investigation into allegations of sexual assault. Although Cassia’s “unstable psychological assessment” caused by her neurasthenia admission to the hospital 10 days before her death caused her to be rejected for guardianship again, the accusation that the father sexually assaulted his biological daughter was too horrific and constituted a one-time threat to the father’s custody. powerful impact.
   This important moment, perhaps as Cassia’s friend said: “She loves her daughters so much and will never leave them in this way.”
  Who is the prince?
   Before her unexpected death, perhaps in order to increase the odds of fighting for custody, Cassia fiercely and publicly expressed her condemnation of her ex-husband and her love for her daughter on her social media with 500,000 followers:
   “Being a parent Children should not be used as victims or pawns when they can’t get along. No matter how crazy, jealous or evil my child’s father is, I will do everything in my power to protect, love, nurture and educate our daughter that no one else can I did it. I’m not perfect, but I will try my best.”
   At the same time, she also broke the news that Abdulaziz had never given me a penny more than a year after the twin daughters defected to her. “. Cassia, who has lost her alimony, can only manage her own brand and sell bags and cars as a last resort to maintain her daughters’ daily expenses.
   This kind of “public shouting” and allegations of sexual assault that affect the prince’s face are combined, coupled with the strange “drug overdose” cause of death, it is easy to suspect that Cassia is not a self-inflicted drug addict, but may be poisoned by others.
   In a marriage, the relationship disappears and the other is wide, so why is it in a desperate situation?
   When she met Abdulaziz, Cassia was a 19-year-old international student. Born in Poland, she grew up in Los Angeles and went to study in Paris. The originally prosperous “strong woman” career turned quietly in an accidental incident when she accompanied a friend to send documents to an “important client”.
   At that time, when Cassia met this “important client”, Abdelaziz, who was exiled in Paris because of a failed coup d’etat, she was deeply shocked by the luxury life of the inter-class. Although Abdulaziz is in “exile” and in the “homeland” of Paris, the palaces, countless luxury cars, 5,000-square-meter palaces, countless luxury cars, The dozens of servants and the wealth hidden behind them made Cassia stunned.
   The “exile” prince also fell in love at first sight with the lively, cheerful and sunny 19-year-old college student. “Accompanying friends to send documents” became a heart-wrenching first encounter. They chat about the passions of Los Angeles and the romance of Paris, and about Abdulaziz’s past as a prince in Qatar—a life that ordinary girl Cassia can’t imagine. Since then, Abdulaziz has launched a fierce pursuit offensive, with roses, jewels, and promises surging with love.
   In addition to wealth without borders, Abdulaziz, a man who was supposed to be at the pinnacle of power, occasionally showed a lovable vulnerability. “He was a very lonely person who never went anywhere except in the palace every day. He made me feel needed and I wanted to take care of him.” To be able to “take care of him,” Cassia Abandoned his life pursuits and dropped out of college – even though he was 30 years older than her.
  ”Canary” and “Crazy Woman”
   In 2004, an exiled prince married an ordinary girl. Abdulaziz had a “little sun” in his boring life, and Cassia suddenly broke away from the blurred mortal beings and became a “princess”, enjoying the wealth and life that matched this title.
   But happiness is always short-lived. Gradually, Cassia discovered that behind the “fragility” that Abdulaziz had made her love, was the life inertia that the prince could not change.
   The first is power. In the face of his wife, Abdulaziz is still a prince. Everything must be based on the needs of her husband. American Cassia needs to change her beliefs and become a Muslim. At the same time, Cassia cannot leave the palace to go shopping or meet friends, and can only accompany her husband to live in seclusion.
   As for wealth, Cassia has said, “I have more money, but I also have more problems.” This money is not the backing of the husband and wife’s living together, but the chips in Abdulaziz’s hands, and every cent is marked with a price. Cassia needs to completely sacrifice her life and freedom in exchange for gold coins in the hands of her husband – if it is an event that the two of them participate in, Abdulaziz will also compare the jewelry that Cassia wears as a princess. Only the right to use them, not to own them outright.
   Three years later, the overwhelmed Cassia separated from Abdulaziz after the birth of their youngest daughter and officially divorced in 2012. After the divorce, Cassia went to live in Spain, and has always been actively trying to find her own rhythm of life, run her own business, and build her own network of relationships… Although she still cannot escape the pain or convenience brought by the “ex-Princess”, But he finally got out of the quagmire.
   Looking back on the “old days” that had a sweet and bleak ending, Cassia admitted that she was a “canary” attracted by money, and walked into the cage only to find out, “Only by constantly showing yourself can you get the master’s charity. “. And the imprisoned life of Jinyi Yushi finally made her understand that freedom is “the most important thing”.
   If I didn’t accompany my friends to send documents, if I didn’t marry Abdulaziz, if the ordinary girl Cassia completed her university studies, found a job, struggled for an ordinary but free life, and stayed with ordinary lovers and children, What would life be like?
   In the custody battle, Abdulaziz’s most common rebuttal to Cassia’s accusations is that “she’s crazy.” “The Mad Woman in the Attic” is a typical image. When a woman’s specific and conclusive accusations cannot be refuted, “she’s crazy” is a shortcut to try to shake the legitimacy and rationality of her discourse, to silence her, and to make the public ignore her cry, and the domineering prince knows this well.
