Statement from the Government of Dubai --
The Government of Dubai Media Office has denied a British newspaper's claim that Sheikh Mohammed had made an offer to the designer Victoria Beckham to help design a luxury hotel in Dubai.
The Office said the report carried by the 'The Daily Mirror' yesterday, claiming that Sheikh Mohammed personally wrote to ask Beckham on to the project was baseless.
The Managing Director of the media Office Ahmed Abdullah Al Sheikh, urged the media to validate and ensure accuracy of news before publishing and to avoid untrue and misleading stories in order not to face legal action.
Hope springs eternal.
