A Swiss court has convicted a brother of the United Arab Emirates' ruler of assaulting an American man with his belt in a luxury Geneva hotel bar.
The Geneva police tribunal convicted Sheik Falah bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan of inflicting "bodily harm with the use of a dangerous object" and ordered him to pay a 10,000 Swiss francs fine ($9,820), according to the judgment obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press.
If the sheik fails to pay the fine, it will be converted into a 100-day prison term, the judgment said.
