    This is wonderful journalism – who are you?

    I agree – this is a fantastic website with well-written and painstakingly researched articles. A great read!

    Sulaiman Al-Fahim – Comedy gold.

    The whole farce at Portsmouth needs to be looked into especially with them today asking the PL/FA/FIFA to reopen the transfer window so they can sell some players (assuming anyone would buy them, of course!!)

    I can provide more information if contacted by the author of this article as I know the complete case. The inside story of how much Sulieman took from Ghantoot Star with evidence documents. He signed the agreement without the permission from the actual owner of the land.

    Thank you for your kind words/offers. I have to hold my hand up and admit that my research for this piece didn’t take many more pains than reading the web-sites of Abu Dhabi’s “National” newspaper and “Arabian Business” magazine, plus the usual Google trails for background. The very detailed “National” article is the one Al-Fahim has been denying all day today (Thursday).

    I found this site through using it as research for other pieces I’d written. So I’m very much second hand; Ian (King) is the site’s real journo. But I’ll bask in any reflected glory that’s going.

    Hi Ahmed, i also had brief business dealings with Mr Al Fahim, i would just like to know how i can get in contact with you because i would be interested to know his previous business background.

    Mark – do you have a source for the chess stuff? I’m keen to know what he’s getting up to in our little world.

  9. Awad Mustafa says:

    Sorry for the late acknowledgement, but I am the reporter who broke the al Fahim arrest warrant story.

    I have to say this is an extremely well written piece.

    Al Fahim pursued me legally and failed at doing so. Prosecutors in Abu Dhabi threw out his case after a 3 hour interrogation with my self and editor in chief.

    Keep up the great writing

    I just stumbled on this when searching to see if that odious creep Bhoyrul was still lying in Dubai on a stipend from the Burson Marsteller affiliate Asda’a and Al Fahim Inc.
    This is brilliant rapportage, and thanks for clearing up and also assembling all the missing links. Bhoyrul is known to take bribes for money and his whole handling of this affair showed ITP to be run by morons and incompetents, but then, Andrew Neil was in the chair so keeping the company of hookers was a no-brainer. That his colleagues didn’t shop Bhoyrul shows what a graveyard of hacks Dubai became pre-crash. They all thought nobody knew their Wiltshire borstal origins and lived the high life.

    I’d also be interested to know what has happened to both Al Fahim and Bhoyrul. The ridiculous pile of crap that they used to spout in Arabian Business was quite frankly embarrassing.
