Ahmed Dahab is a Sudanese entrepreneur, investor and businessman. He is the author of The Trials and Tribulations of Ahmed Dahab, an autobiography recounting his experiences of wrongful accusation and miscarriage of justice at the hands of the Kuwaiti legal system.
Ahmed Dahab moved to Kuwait with his family at an early age. His head for business saw him progressing quickly up the corporate ladder, helping him to establish an impressive reputation as a highly successful entrepreneur.
Once Mr Dahab had accumulated sufficient finances to invest in the real-estate market, he joined a largescale Turkish development project in 2014. Here, he enjoyed great success, though it later became apparent that not everyone who noticed his achievements wished him and his company well.
In 2016, the Kuwaiti State Security Service accused Ahmed Dahab’s company of being involved in money laundering. The accusation followed an investigation which lasted just 30 minutes. Subsequently, Ahmed Dahab was subjected to wrongful imprisonment; injustice; and torture of both a mental and physical nature. It soon became clear that the Public Prosecutor was “out to get” Mr Dahab and his associates.
In an attempt to raise awareness of his ordeal, Mr Dahab is inviting readers of his autobiography, The Trials and Tribulations of Ahmed Dahab, to submit either an illustration of the Kuwait Public Prosecutor, or share their thoughts by leaving a comment via the online competition form available on his website.
Prizes include £250 for the winning comment and £1,000 for the winning illustration.
The competition closes on the 9th May 2020.
