Osama bin Laden’s brother is renting out flats for students in Scotland.

Bakr Mohammed bin Laden, 68, owns Woodside House in Glasgow, which opened earlier this year, through UK-registered firm Kelso Estates.

The Saudi Arabian tycoon bought the land for £1.5million in 2014 and has begun renting the apartments out to wealthier students.

The site is in the affluent West End of Glasgow and was the former home of the popular Pewter Pot pub.

Chief executive of Collegiate AC – who manage the property – Heriberto Cuanalo said he was in partnership with Bin Ladens.

He told the Daily Record:  ‘As official, publicly-accessible documents show, the owners of Woodside House are Kelso Estates Ltd.

‘In addition to two other current officers, engineer Bakr Mohammed bin Laden is indeed named as a person with significant control of Kelso Estates Ltd.’

The studio flats, which include rooms for dinner parties, a cinema and private gym are rented out for around £13,000 per year.

Resident Chenhan Ye, 26, an engineering student from China, said: ‘I am certainly surprised that the building is owned by this man. I think people will see this as a risk.’

Bakr bin Laden is the chairman of the Saudi bin Ladin  Group and has been described as ‘the true ruler of Jeddah’ sources in the Saudi business capital.

He was educated in America at the University of Miami.

Osama bin Laden, who was killed in Pakistan in 2011, was the founder of terrorist group Al Qaeda, who claimed responsibility for the 9/11 attacks.

His firm is involved in major construction deals in Qatar and around the world, including a £816m contract to build in the King Abdullah Financial District in Saudi Arabia.

Despite his power, Bakr bin Laden keeps a relatively low profile and is very rarely seen in public.

  1. The entire family should’ve been taken to GITMO for extensive questioning after 9/11. Osama^s sister in law wrote a telling book about how it was like living in prison when she stupidly left CA to go with him to Arabia. Her book is called ^Inside The Kingdom^ Its very sad until her divorce and getting out of there before they killed her for disagreeing with her crappy husband.
    I imagine those apartments in Glasgow are pretty bad if its rules are under sharia law which means no drinking, for one…
    i say, keep the muzzies safe & snug in their own countries and NO buying property in other countries they feel are infidel.
