Systematic indifference from the Dubai authorities casts a shadow over its credibility as a location where honest people can engage in the artificial intelligence sector.
CEO Wesam Lootah of Smart Dubai, a Government Establishment, was pictured next to Carl Freer – the renowned criminal linked with the European Mafia. They were both speakers at the Artificial Intelligence forum 2018 Dubai – the website claimed official government partnership as Smart Dubai.
This begs the question – has due diligence disappeared in Dubai? Carl Freer is a notorious international criminal who was sentenced to 2 years in jail by the French Supreme Court, for his role in the European Mafia car fraud, that ruling (link) was delivered with him in absentia, they also issued a (still active) warrant for his arrest. That by itself should be enough to get the Dubai authorities to act, let alone the plethora of facts and evidence showing Carl Freer to be a rampant criminal that would be uncovered by a simple internet search of his name.
The apparent lethargy and incapacity of the Dubai authorities to fulfil their official obligations lends credence to Carl Freer’s continuous claims that he has negotiated royal family protection (wasta). Carl Freer is supported by elements in the Royal Family, and, in the Four Seasons Hotel restaurant he recently informed his guests that Dubai is a gangster’s paradise and he wished he moved there years ago.
How else could a wanted criminal with a record as long as his attend a prestigious event such as this with impunity – and publicly start scamming people? As is his well-published style, he has used that event to lend credibility to his venture. He is already showing people the photos, telling them he was a keynote speaker, telling them about his Royal Family Friends, and, having convinced them he is the real deal, will con them out of their money. There has never been any substance to any Carl Freer company or venture, and there never will be.
For those not in the know, artificial intelligence and crypto currencies are Carl Freer’s new areas of interest, and he has engaged financial advisors in Dubai to raise funds for an ICO. Carl Freer’s foray into crypto will be a failure – just like every other one he has been involved in. We will bring more details later, but anyone familiar with Carl Freer and his ventures can be assured that this will again be another criminal endeavour – the leopard has not changed its spots nor could it if it wanted to.

Danish and Swedish nationals living in Dubai are aware of Carl Freer and his criminal history and will take positive steps to avoid being scammed.
