This is the instant millionaire fugitive Zahid Khan met American rapper Busta Rhymes at an exclusive VIP party in Dubai. Khan fled to Dubai before being jailed for 10 years in his absence for a £500,000 number plate fraud.
Khan after being found guilty of conspiracy to defraud over a £500,000 number plate fraud, met the singer at a celebrity party over the Christmas period.
Fraudster Khan from Moseley, South Birmingham posted the video to his Facebook page and said: “Busta rhymes & me chilling. Dubai is a land for all, everyone is welcome it’s a land full of opportunities from owning your own business or even investing in your own home. It has a lot to offer!!
“Every time I visit Dubai, I have met all sorts of people from business men to celebrities, in Dubai who also have investment in Dubai it’s a land where your dreams can come true. Come let’s make your dream a reality the only place to make it happen. #dubai”
In the video Busta Rhymes speaks to the camera saying he is out in Dubai making a movie and refers to Khan as “his brother.”
It is the latest video to be posted by Khan since he fled Birmingham before his summer crown court case trial had ended.
Khan had flew 3,500 miles to Dubai after skipping the country before his fraud trial came to an end.
The Birmingham conman jumped on a plane as the case concluded after being allowed to keep his passport during the procedures.
Two brothers and a cousin were also jailed for their part in the scam, which had targeted a UK lottery winner.
Neither the trial judge at Birmingham Crown Court nor at the Canterbury people smuggling case had asked for his passport to be handed in.
Hours after fleeing the country in June, serial criminal Khan posted a video on his Facebook page to the judge saying: “Sorry, I had no choice.”
In the astonishing 16-minute minute video, sunglasses-wearing Khan claimed he skipped the country as he had not had a fair trial.
He was convicted in his absence of conspiracy to commit fraud, perverting the course of justice, plus concealing and converting criminal property.
Speaking directly to the camera and directing his comments to Judge Philip Parker, QC, he said: “I am making this video to let you know I am very sorry, I did not want to do what I did, but I I felt like I had no other choice.
“Had I stayed in the UK, I was not having no justice and the only safest option I had was to leave this country.”
