The report also indicates Prince Albert “turned a blind eye to severe police brutality and abuse of power” as well as corruption, money laundering, organized crime, and more, the Press Gazette reported Prince Albert claims.

According to the Press Gazette, the report ran on the front-page on “the day after their wedding.”

He wants £300,000 and an injunction, according to the Evening Standard.
