A prominent member of the Saudi royal family is defending his handling of the 2005 sale of a jet to the late Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi in a London court.

Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is being sued by a Jordanian businesswoman who claims she is owed a commission of 6.5 million pound ($9.9 million) for helping arrange the sale.

Appearing in the High Court, he denied that he had agreed to pay a specific commission to consultant Daad Sharab.

She claims the prince, a nephew of King Abdullah, agreed to the commission during a meeting at Gadhafi's tent in Libya.

Alwaleed's wealth is estimated in the billions, but he told the judge Friday that "every dollar counts for me."
