Artist Joyce Valkhoff was caught up in a corrupt Arabian thriller

Posted by 7starsdubai on October 8, 2014


With trust, multiple pieces of artist canvases and 15.561 euro transferred to her bank account, travelled Joyce Valkhoff in 2004 to Dubai. Not for the money. But for a new challange and passion for her work.
She was the chosen one…..but the Dutch artist landed in a complot with false identities and corruption, due to the individuals surrounding President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nayhan and the prestigious Emirates Palace,
the most expensive hotel ever been built. After having made the art collection in a bathroom, where she was compelled to make the 34 piece art collection, in shock, stolen her art collection and having been threatend within the UAE, she lives now in hiding.
From her hiding place, she now fights for her rights.

Her house is a bunker, literally. Her secret hideaway, is totally cut off from civilization, with just a few rabbits, she tells her story of the nightmare that took place in the rich oil country. Obviously an inspiring location, due to the thousands of notable precision documentation, forms in 4 hours time an impressive claim. 
She has accumulated evidences, totally on her own and for the last 5 years.

For somebody that has lived in total solitude as well as having  been burden with heavy psychologically stress put upon her, she still has a broad smile on her face. Different than when our first contact. Via other fax numbers and email addresses. Her telephone is tapped and her website closely watched via private satellites.
Here you have copies of the dates and the times noted on them. When I contacted the Abu Dhabi Contact Center, an extension of the government, was my website watched by nameless IP addresses. These are the business cards from people who do not even exist. And these are the ground floor plans of the private quarters of the Presidents within the Arabian world, where my paintings are hanging. Top secret material.

……….. With, hopefully you have enough time says Joyce Valkhoff, a former visualizer. After a free life in Sydney Australia, she found her new passion after working hours…..painting. International success that reached even our own Dutch Royal Family.
One day a good friend suggested to take a look and to go to Dubai. That is where I thought my golden future would be, because the oil state has the greatest wish of making their city, Abu Dhabi, into an international cultural city. They even are building the second Louvre and a Guggenheim Museum.
During her trip, she met her first contact, Mr Butti Saif Al Muhairi, the old protocol Director of the Jumeirah Group and Burj Al Arab. Mr. Butti was impressed by the work of Valkhoff. The man would eventually be a crucial position within the fraud scheme. It did not take long before Valkhoff, being back in the Netherlands, would hear that she was chosen out of
350 artists to the honor of making the art collection. Better today than tomorrow. Her contact was Carrie Nicholson. But I had my needs and wants. I wanted to paint on my own linen. That was no problem. But whom was I painting for? That I would hear later. Who was going to organise my workers permit? Important, because otherwise you could land up in jail.
All would be taken care of at my arrival. On the 9th of September 2004, was just over 15,000 euro transferred to my bank account via Cornellian Gallery. A small detail, the real Cornelian Gallery is spelt with one L.

Justice for Lee Brown who died in Dubai – Family launched Website

Posted by 7starsdubai on May 9, 2011


Lee died under suspicious circumstances in Bur Dubai Police Station just weeks ago.

The family are determined that Lee’s death should not be in vain.

His family currently fighting for justice for Lee and the truth about his final days amid many many obstacles.

They will continue in the hope that highlighting the tragic death of such a kind and generous man will have a more far reaching impact on the conditions in which Lee was kept and the level of care that citizens can expect when overseas whether working or on holiday, like Lee.

His family can’t begin to express the effect that Lee’s shocking death has had and the drive that we now have to ensure that the families of others do not have to endure some of the heartache and pain that we have lived through and the hurdles that we have had to overcome.

More up to date information about the campaign is posted on the Comments page

Lee Bradley Brown, 39, died on Tuesday in Dubai

Posted by 7starsdubai on April 16, 2011


Independent investigation urged into death of British detainee in UAE

16 April 2011

Amnesty International UAE Dubai Lee Bradley Brown

The authorities in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) must ensure that the investigation into the death of a British citizen who died while in police custody is impartial and independent, Amnesty International said today.

Lee Bradley Brown, 39, died on Tuesday in Dubai, six days after he was arrested by police and amid allegations that he was assaulted in police custody.

“The UAE authorities must quickly get to the bottom of what occurred by carrying out a full and thorough investigation,” said Malcolm Smart, Amnesty International’s director for the Middle East and North Africa.

“They must also ensure that any police or others who are found responsible for assaulting Lee Bradley Brown or causing his death are promptly brought to justice.”

Lee Bradley Brown is reported to have been on holiday in Dubai when he was arrested on 6 April following an altercation at a luxury hotel. He was taken to a local police station where, it is alleged, he was assaulted by police officers before being confined to a cell.

He died six days later after choking on his own vomit, according to the Dubai authorities.

The Dubai police have told Amnesty International that the death is being investigated by their Criminal Investigation Department.

“We welcome the fact that an investigation is already underway but it is not sufficiently independent if, as it appears, one branch of the police is investigating alleged abuses by other police,” said Malcolm Smart.

“It is vital in cases of this nature that those charged with finding the truth are fully independent and have the powers and resources to achieve this end, otherwise they cannot expect to command public credibility.”

A British tourist was beaten to death by officers in a Dubai police station after being arrested for swearing, it was

Dubai British Tourist beaten to death at Police stationclaimed yesterday.

Lee Bradley Brown, 39, was on holiday at a £1,000-a-night hotel in the Arab state when he was thrown into a filthy cell.

Police sources say he was ‘badly beaten up’ by a group of police officers, leaving him unconscious on the floor.

Inmates told how they watched officers bundle him into a body-bag and drag him out of the building.

During Mr Brown’s six days in Bur Dubai police station, guards refused to give him enough food and water and did not let him see a lawyer, it is alleged.

His sister learned about the attack when she received a phone call from an inmate on Sunday, claiming her brother had been beaten.

The prisoner found her phone number on a photocopy of her brother’s passport which had been left behind in the cell.

She contacted the British Embassy in Dubai, and on Monday an official was sent to visit Mr Brown at the police station.

But the official was turned away by an officer who claimed Mr Brown did not want to see him and had ‘declined consular assistance’.

Staff Report

Murder victim ‘came to UAE to build a life for himself’
By Bassma Al Jandaly, Staff Reporter
Published: October 02, 2006, 00:00

Dubai: The two men who went to display diamonds at the Burj Al Arab never suspected their deal would turn bloody.

Rami Andrwas Sama’an, a 32-year-old Syrian, was killed last Tuesday at the seven-star hotel when he accompanied his friend and compatriot Elias Al Nadaf, 30, to meet a group of people who claimed to be diamond traders.

Sama’an came to the UAE 10 years ago and was a partner at the Al Rozana coffee shop in Al Ghusais. Sama’an has a brother and a sister. His family lives in Ma’areen, a village near Damascus.

“He came to work here to support his family and to build a life for himself,” said Fadi Al Nadaf, Elias’s brother and Sama’an’s friend.

Al Nadaf said Sama’an was unmarried and was staying with friends in an apartment in Al Nahda in Sharjah.
