Greetings from Dubai. Today on 27th of June 2012, some Spanish media reports are claiming the arrests of 8 individals by the Barcelona Police Department while trying to swindle some money from Spanish companies and posing as the representatives of the Middle Eastern Investors.
In this context some media outlets has also published the picture of Our Group Chairman His Highness Sheikh Buttin Bin Suhail Al Maktoum along with Mr. Angel Torres which was taken out from one of our event and also mentioned about these individuals swindling the money from Getafe CF.
This is also to confirm that we have no representatives in Spain and the said arrested people have nothing to do with our group.
As you are aware of that we have signed the contract with Getafe CF last year which we are moving along with with our business matters.
Mr. Angel Torres has confirmed to use today that he has never filed any complaint with the Barcelona Police for anything.
We Will appreciate if you can get us the official response of the Barcelona Police in this regard so we can take the appropriate actions in this regard. We cannot allow anyone to ruin the images of the Middle Eastern Companies for their own beneficial needs.
