Early life[edit]

In 1985, Prince Mashhoor was charged with conspiring to smuggle cocaine into Britain and spent two weeks in jail before he was granted 150,000 sterling pound bail at the high court in London. Bail was refused after the prosecution told the court that Mashhoor had no diplomatic immunity[3] and was ordered to report twice a week to police until his trial.[1] In April 1986, Prince Mashhoor was found guilty after admitting possession cocaine and told the court he spent about 500,000 dollars a year on cocaine, and high standard of living.[4]
