Sheikh Ahmad Maktroum the Billionaire Chairman of Emirates Airlines fathered a love child with Egyptian Model Nivin El Gamal the High Court heard today.
The Judge was told Sheikh Makhtoum cannot attend Court and will not give evidence over a case brought by the Model claiming she married the Billionaire in a secret ceremony because he was - wait for it, representing the UAE at a GCC meeting in Riyadh whose Charter calls for Gulf States to "serve Arab and Islamic causes"
Sheikh Maktoum denies the marriage which he is contesting however freely admits via his brief that Nivin El Gamal was an "irregular sexual partner" so they did meet for sex which explains their 3 year old son which he does not deny.
The Sheikh who is an uncle of Dubai's ruler Sheikh Mohammad Maktoum presumably sees no inconsistency or hypocrisy in him getting away with having sex outside of marriage and fathering a love child while those guilty of any sexual offence in Dubai will have the full force of Sharia law thrown at them.
With Call Girls doing a roaring trade in Dubai the sooner the Kings of Bling admit their hypocrisy the better, after all Revolutions are stoked by anger of people towards rulers engaged in hypocrisy, corruption or tyranny. Not only Prostitution, but Alcohol is booming in the Gulf so is tyranny in the form of shocking brutal assaults by UAE Sheikhs and corruption by wasting money on the most expensive Xmas Trees in Muslim Abu Dhabi. The warning signs are there for all to see, Gulf Royal Puppets propped up by Western Govt's are living on borrowed time and literally playing in the last chance Saloon.
**Update** Judge rules Maktoum married under Islamic Law which is not recognised in English Law
