The Paris criminal court ordered Saudi prince Sattam al-Saud to hand over custody of his daughter to Jewish mother Candice Cohen-Ahnine, the Daily Telegraph reported Wednesday.

The prince dismissed the verdict, saying that, if need be, he would take his daughter into hiding "like bin Laden," the Telegraph reported. He has been keeping his daughter in Riyadh for the past three-and-a-half years, despite the efforts of high-level French authorities, including President Nicolas Sarkozy, to resolve the issue.

The Telegraph reported that the Prince Saud now faces an international arrest warrant for ignoring the custody sentence.
