Wealthy Saudi Arabian students living in the United States have been vanishing while facing criminal charges, including rape, manslaughter and other felonies, reports Oregon Live , which has conducted an investigation into the disappearances. The Oregonian/OregonLive uncovered five examples in Oregon and began searching other states in late January. We’ve found similar cases in Montana, Ohio , Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin.
We also found two cases in Nova Scotia: Saudi students in two separate incidents skipped bail and disappeared after being accused of sexual assault. -Oregon Live
The Oregon cases involved Saudi nationals who never appeared to face trial, or disappeared before completing a jail sentence; “two accused rapists, a pair of suspected hit-and-run drivers and one man accused of having a trove of child pornography on his computer,” reads the report.
