Al Fajer Properties Case Comment of the Day

Posted by 7starsdubai on May 18, 2009

Comment of the day – to Al Fajer Properties by Journalist 2009


Al Fajer Properties: FORCING ( Extort) an investor to sign a document and a unit ( Apartment)which is not existing in the way like describted in the letters of Al Fajer to this purchaser .

This acts happen in January 2008 and have been enforced (  after this email (January 2008, shown below)) again with extortion against the purchaser by Al Fajer Properties under the so called “New Management” in March 2008 ! Al Fajer Properties is holding until today( 2009) the 45 % payment made by the purchaser directly to Nakheel until mid 2006.

Al Fajer Properties terminate the rights of this investor in March 2008, which the purchaser several times rejected until today, than they start to talk again with him, after he didnt agree to a next taken agressive extortion by them, they start again to terminate his rights – this happen in 2008 – 2009 – not under the former CEO Zadeh, this happen in a direct way by Maktoum Hasher Maktoum over an english lawyer.
To force an purcahser who bought an APARTMENT in an RESIDENTIAL TOWER ( PLOT 3) – in which it is cle since a long time by the plans of Al Fajer ( but this was never uncovered to the purchaser) , that this RESEIDENTIAL BUILDING is not RESIDENTIAL – it is 100 % COMMERCIAL – to say it short – to force somebody to agree to a contract in which an object is mentioned which will never exist : How do you call an act like this ?

And using this not agreeing as the reason to terminate the rights of the purchaser – who hold offical confirmations from DMCC in which everything is very clear mentioned  – how do you call this ?

An email from Al Fajer Properties to this victim left from the former Falcon Tower , Plot H3, once  original purchased at Nakheel in 2005, transfered by DMCC in 2006 to Al Fajer Properties with the clear contractual agreement betweeen DMCC and the purchaser, that Al Fajer Proeprties will deliver an APARTENT in A RESIDENTIAL TOWER ( PLOT H3) JLT, like once purchased at NAKHEEL in 2005.  “NOTHING will change to the once original Purchase” ! … Completion 2008, crytsal clear lake view, 100 sqm luxury apartment – once named and launched by Nakheel as Falcon Tower Plot H3 , Jumeirah Lake Towers !!!!!!

Those victims of the Al Fajer game never hold a so called signable Contract in their hands. It was a Draft full of mistakes and blanks, with no floor plan with no attachments about the apartment…. only an inclomplete draft …. on which they forced ( extort)  them to agree and sign by writig them  the following email , early 2008
email: January 2008 ( an email full of lies !!!!!!!)
Dear Mr ……..

Thank you for your email dated 31 January 2008 in relation to the typing error on your statement.  I have pleasure to attach an amended statement for your records which clearly shows your funds have been assigned to your unit on Plot H3.  Please be advised that despite the error showing the name of the tower, you have and will remain in Plot H3, in the same floor, in the same unit, as per the contracts in your possession.

I would also like to apologise for the delay in responding to your email 23rd January 2008, however this was due to the fact that this was incorrectly addressed to sharam@hhfajer.ae, instead of shahram@hhfajer.ae.   For all future email correspondence, we would be grateful if you could please send directly to my email leighjones@alfajerproperties.ae to ensure a prompt response.
Whilst writing, I would like to draw your attention to our email dated 17 January 2007 (copy attached) as we have still not received a response nor the required documentation.  As discussed, we are still awaiting your formal agreement to proceed with the contract for the Apartment in Plot H3 – Unit …, where we had provided an extended deadline for return of 24 January 2008, as these contracts have been in your possession since October 2007.

As a gesture of goodwill, we would like to hereby once again extend the deadline of 5 days from the date of this email (namely Tuesday 5 February 2008).   Unfortunately failure to provide the required documentation and agreement to proceed by this date, will be taken as your decision not to proceed with the purchase, whereby we will organise the immediate refund of your original booking deposit together with the cancellation of your rights in the property.
For the avoidance of doubt, we are continuing to act in good faith by once again extending deadlines, but cannot continue without the signed contracts being returned.

I trust the above answers your queries in detail and I look forward to hearing from you shortly, however in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly should you require any further clarification or assistance.

Kindest regards

Al Fajer Properties – Dubai Court Case – Lawyer rubbishes lawsuit against Dubai sheikh

Posted by 7starsdubai on May 18, 2009

source BusinessMaktoob and  Zawya

Dubai Monday, May 04, 2009

The defence lawyer( Samir Jaafar) for a Dubai Sheikh ( Hasher Maktoum bin Juma Al Matoum, brother in law of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum) being sued by an Iranian businessman over $1.9 billion property investments  on Monday rejected the lawsuit as baseless.

“All his allegations and the sums that he claims to have pumped into the company are unfounded,” lawyer Samir Jaafar told news agency AFP after the third hearing in the case.

Shahram Abdullah Zadeh has filed the $1.9 billion case against Sheikh Hasher Maktoum bin Jumaa Al-Maktoum and the Dubai-based real estate developer Al-Fajer Properties.

Zadeh insists he was the real owner and sole investor in Al-Fajer, which is registered under the name of Sheikh Hasher, a brother-in-law of Dubai’s ruler, Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashid al-Maktoum.

“There are surprises in the documents that we have presented to the court which will turn the case upside down,” Sheikh Hasher’s lawyer Samir Jaafar said, declining to elaborate.

“We believe that the lawsuit will be rejected after the court goes through the documents that we have presented,” Jaafar added.

Legal sources close to the case, asking not to be named, said the defence has charged that the sums which Zadeh says he invested in the company were in fact the “company’s money that he misused to appear as if it was his own”.

Zadeh, for his part, demands the “recovery of all material assets of Al-Fajer Properties“, according to legal documents obtained by AFP.

These include liquid assets and property, which are estimated at 7 billion dirhams ($1.9 billion), and 9 percent interest since the suit was filed.

His lawyer Salim al-Shaali, who asked the judge for time to study the defence document, said that at the next hearing on May 25 he will ask for an auditor to be appointed to look into the company’s accounts.

“The expert would decide who pumped capital into the company and … whether the defendants paid any money,” he told AFP.

Zadeh charges Sheikh Hasher made no investment in Al-Fajer and that he acquired the licence under the sheikh’s name only because Emirati law does not allow non-Gulf citizens to register real estate firms under their own names.

“For every dirham that Sheikh Hasher can show the court he has invested in Al-Fajer Properties, will give him the company and an extra $10 million bonus,” Shahram Zadeh told AFP after the latest hearing, which he did not attend

Shahram Zadeh said he started up the company from scratch, pumping in cash “as and when the company needed”, and that he only withdrew part of his initial investments after the company expanded from property sales.

“The Sheikhs claim I was an employee,” said Zadeh.

“My question to the court is what employee (can be) the sole investor, work for four years with absolute single authority signing billions of dirhams on cheques, contracts … but work without a salary or an employment contract?”

In addition to Sheikh Hasher, Zadeh is suing his daughter, Sheikha Maryam, a partner in the company, and son Sheikh Maktoum bin Hasher Juma Al Maktoum, who was made president of Al-Fajer after Zadeh was sacked in February.

Zadeh said he was detained by Dubai police after he was sacked and then held without charge for 60 days, and that his passport was confiscated and is still being held.

“I still don’t know why I was arrested,” he said.

The case comes as several executives from high-profile Dubai firms are being held on suspicion of embezzlement and as the once-booming regional business and tourism hub struggles to stave off the impact of the global economic crisis.

„Folter geht uns alle an“ – German Press – Torture – Issa bin Zayed al Nahyan

Posted by 7starsdubai on May 18, 2009

source German Press Merkur

Dietramszell , Germany, 18.05.2009

Mit Applaus ist am Sonntag die Predigt von Pfarrer Franz Burgey quittiert worden. Er hatte die Machenschaften von Skeikh Issa bin Zayed Al Nahyan kritisiert.

Die Kirchgänger beklatschten die Stellungnahme des Ortsgeistlichen von Lochen und Linden, der sich ausdrücklich von den Machenschaften von Prinz Issa Bin Zayed al-Nahyan distanziert hatte.

Pfarrer Burgey, emeritierter Professor und Hobby-Historiker, ist bekannt für seine tiefschürfenden Predigten. Gestern nutzte er die Gunst die Stunde, um manchen Stammtischparolen eine klare Absage zu erteilen. Immer wieder wird in Dietramszell argumentiert, der Scheich sei nun Mal aus einem anderen Kulturkreis. Das Sprichwort „andere Länder, andere Sitten“ ist nach Burgeys Worten aber „völlig unzutreffend“. Unter Berufung auf islamische Gelehrte sagte der Ortsgeistliche: „Mord, Blutvergießen und das Stiften von Unheil, Unordnung und Zerstörung gelten als schwere Verbrechen. Niemand hat das Recht, Leben und Eigentum anderer Menschen zu schädigen oder wegzunehmen.“

Selbst wenn Mordversuch und Folter in anderen Ländern erlaubt wären, sagte Burgey, „erwarten wir von einem Mitbürger, der hier in Deutschland unter dem Schutz der deutschen Gesetze lebt, dass er sich auch anderswo entsprechend benimmt, sonst ist er als Nachbar nicht tragbar“. Landesweit sei mit Empörung aufgenommen worden, dass Dietramszeller die Folterungen mit dem Verweis auf die Landessitten in Abu Dhabi gleichmütig hingenommen hätten. „Es geht mir nicht darum, Leute wegen unglücklicher Äußerungen zu schimpfen“, predigte Burgey. Wenn man plötzlich vor der Kamera oder einem Mikrofon stehe „kann leicht etwas Falsches herauskommen“. Er müsse aber richtig stellen: „Es geht uns sehr wohl etwas an, wenn der Scheich in Abu Dhabi foltert.“ Demokratie bestehe wesentlich im Hinsehen, nicht im Wegsehen.

Mesner Johann Mayer begrüßte die Erklärungen von Pfarrer Burgey. „Es ist schwierig für den einfachen Bürger die Sachverhalten zu erfassen und zu verstehen.“ Aus diesem Grund sei die „aufklärende, sachliche Predigt“ des Pfarrers sehr hilfreich gewesen. Die Rede habe „den Horizont erweitert“ – schließlich solle und könne man sich nicht auf das Gerede anderer verlassen. (xb/ee)
