This second person offered many times the Private Council to participate in his projects but the institution always rejected it due to incompatibility of characters with our quality and philosophy.
According to this circumstances and because the scammers are avoiding communications and they are continuing with their criminal activities, His Highness Mahmoud Salah Al Din Assaf personally have approved to start the proceeding of criminal case for impersonation in the United States to Kamil Grund and Marcel Van Vleuten because of the unauthorized use of the name of the institution, the name of His Highness, the corporative image as well as the name of some of the members who are included in the Advisory board of our institution as well as in partner institutions like Al-Khalifa Business School.

Kamil Ghund and Jorge Sebastiao have also been using names of several officials of the Middle Eastern royal families as well as officer of Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) as member of their fraudulent organization ‘EcoShumi Foundation’.
