Outfielder Lyman Bostock, on his 27th birthday, signed a five-year contract with the California Angels Monday for a $3.5 million plus-the most lucrative deal ever for a team sport athlete.

The unprecedented deal included a FULLY GUARANTEED, five year, $600,000 annual salary, $500,000 signing bonus, a $500,000 Interest free loan, and a $200,000 Interest free business contract loan! The FULLY GUARANTEED contract was PAID in full, after he was murdered on the last day of his first year of the contract with five years left to perform!

In a Historical, Unprecedented case in Sports and Professional Basketball, Abdul-Jalil and Superstar Management, along with NBA player Brian Taylor, negotiated an addendum to the standard NBA contract with the Denver Nuggets for a $250.000 interest free loan and making the contract “tax free”.

Taylor had a clause that stipulated be could become a free agent if the Nuggets breeched his contract in any manner.

The Nuggets made the first payment of $50,000 due him on time. He said they were 19 days late on the second payment before making a partial payment. The third payment, which was due Jan. 1, was over 13 days late, according to Taylor. They did.

So, in mid-season the team had sufficiently breached the contract, according to Jalil, defaulting by 13 days on the final part of a $250,000 interest free loan with the late payments that triggered the clause in the addendum that allowed Taylor to opt out of the contract. Taylor withheld his services from that point in the middle of the season.

Taylor’s agent, Abdul Jalil, said in NewYork that Taylor becomes a free agent immediately should the Nuggets deviate from any portion of the agreement. Jalil said the agreement is unique in that it contains a clause providing that should Taylor sign with another NBA team, Denver, may not receive compensation in the form of players, or draft choices. The compensation must be in the form of cash, half of which goes to Taylor and half to the Nuggets.

This clause reportedly was unprecedented in major league sports player contracts and expects NBA Commissioner Larry O’Brien to call a Collective Bargaining Federal Arbitration hearing on the case because the contract clause is so unique.

Jalil is the agent who represented baseball infielder Junior Moore, who won free agency from the Atlanta Braves in a landmark contract agreement following the 1977 season in a Federal Arbitration case of Moore (MLBPA) vs. Atlanta Braves (MLB). Moore’s contract permitted him to declare himself a free agent based on his own value judgment of the amount of playing time he had with the Braves. Used as only a part-time performer, Moore chose to leave Atlanta and signed with the Chicago White Sox.

The unprecedented case in Professional Sports and Basketball was necessary as the the addendum to the contract was the result of Taylor’s dispute of the contract that was originally negotiated by the players union director Larry Fleisher. The inherent problems that this situation provided for the National Basketball Association, the Denver Nuggets, and most importantly the Director of the NBA Players Union and the Union itself, were incredible, FILLED WITH CONFLICTS OF INTEREST, MULTIPLE INSTANCES OF FRAUD, COLLUSION, and MISREPRESENTATION! The case was so bad that Larry Fleisher, the Director of the NBA Players Union and the Union itself, could NOT represent Taylor in the Federal Arbitration hearing.

In mid-season the team breached the contract with a late payment that triggered a clause in the addendum that allowed him to opt out of the contract. The player withheld his services in the middle of the season and the Nuggets and the NBA filed for Federal Arbitration. In prevailing in this matter, Taylor received his FULL PAY, an interest free loan, was declared free of his contract (“a Free Agent”), and allowed to negotiate a new contract with the team of his choice. Cite Arbitration Decision in the matter of “The National Basketball Association (Denver Nuggets) vs. The National Basketball Players Association (Brian Taylor)”, Jan. 25, 1978.

The Nuggets declined to have tapes of the Taylor negotiating sessions heard by renowned federal arbitrator Peter Seitz, who agreed Taylor was free, but that the Nuggets were due compensation.

“The Major Leagues of Professional Baseball Clubs (Atlanta Braves) vs. The Major League Baseball Players Association (Alvin Jr. Moore)” He negotiated a professional Baseball contract for a rookie player that contained several special clauses and one that allowed him to declare himself a “Free Agent” in the middle of the season if he was dissatisfied with his playing time. http://www.box.net/shared/4apqfv9fpg

The National Baseball League President ruled against the clause citing that “it contained provisions inconsistent with the Reserve System Articles of the new Basic Labor Agreement” and threw it out, whereupon he took the case to arbitration. He prevailed in this case of unprecedented legal rights benefits and it was hailed by the Director of the Players Union, Marvin Miller, as “the single greatest advancement of player rights in baseball history and as valuable as any inherent rights in the Major League Players current Basic Labor Agreement. This clause became the industry standard and was the example distributed to all other representatives by the Players Union to be included in their contracts. Cite: Arbitration Decision No.32 in the matter of “The Major Leagues of Professional Baseball Clubs (Atlanta Braves) vs. The Major League Baseball Players Association (Alvin Jr. Moore)”, Sept. 7, 1977.

He negotiated a series of contracts that included many unprecedented benefits to the individual clients, one of which was interest-free loans that could be forgiven. Upon review by the Internal Revenue Service, the contracts and  returns where thrown out and challenged by the IRS as the IRS filed suit. After an 8 year legal battle, he prevailed in Federal Tax Court and established that Interest free Loans where in fact legal. This unprecedented legal ruling was established as a standard in the Tax Laws and was written in several National Law Journals. Cite:

Abdul-Jalil’s Profile

“In another religion they honor people who serve like you with Sainthood!”” – Economics Professor Adeel Malik, Oxford University, England and World Renowned News Expert Commentator, speaking about Abdul-Jalil and the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation.
“GOD sent me an ANGEL!”” – Hammer, speaking about Abdul-Jalil.
“Jalil, YOU ARE A TZADIK (SAINT)!”– Barry Barkan, Live Oak Institute and

“I thank God for you and for bringing you into my life and for the ministry you have been given to help the people of God!”– Pastor L. J. Jennings, Kingdom Builders Christian Fellowship, speaking about Abdul-Jalil and AMWF
ABDUL-JALIL: GENIUS, CALLED “BOY WONDER!!”
As an Elementary School, seven (7) year old Third (3rd) grader at the end of the school year, Jalil was administered the Standard Intelligence Quotient (IQ) test and scored 183 to certify him as GENIUS! As a Fourth (4th) grader he was placed in an experimental study group with the top 10 highest scoring students, whom were allowed to study at their own rate and had to fully complete each grade level and test out in the 70% percentile or greater to advance to the next grade level.
So from his Elementary School Fourth (4th) grade year until the completion of his Six (6th) grade year he studied with the same students, with the same teacher, in the same classroom for those three (3) years. During that time he completed the Fourth (4th) grade through Ninth (9th) grade years and tested out no less then 98% percentile for each year! He was to enter High School as a Sophomore even though he was only 11 year olds! His friends from those days still refer to him as “BOY WONDER!!”
There were many meetings with him, his parents, the Elementary School administration, the School DistrictAdministration and the District School Board to authorize his placement into High School. It was finally determined that it would ultimately be the decision of him and his parents. During a final meeting with his teacher and principal, he was asked by his mother and father if he would want to be in the same classroom with his older brother for three (3) years, to which he reacted “Oh NO!”.
He enrolled in Junior High School with his class and having already completed the three years of class work, he took electives and special independent study with classes in Chinese Mandarin, Advanced Spanish, Humanities, Advanced Math, Music, Advanced Writing, and was named the Publisher of the School Newspaper, had his own columns and crosswords.

He was then asked (required) to take the test again under strict surveillance and supervision in a private room with just him and 2 ETS test administrators! To EVERYONE’s chagrin, the results of the second supervised test revealed he scored HIGHER than the first test!

Beauford Delaney (1901-1979) “Portraitist of the Famous”
“Perhaps I should say, flatly, what I believe–that he is a great painter, among the very greatest; but I do know that great art can only be created out of love, and that no greater lover has ever held a brush.”
James Baldwin (1924-1987), writer, friend of artist Beauford Delaney
Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim, c.1971
In 1971 Abdul-Jalil had the HONOR of having his portrait painted by Beauford Delaney, hailed as the most important African-American artists of the 20th century, whose life appeared to symbolize the mythical artistic existence of privation and relative obscurity, that show a retrospective of “uninhibited colorist (though never an unintelligent one)” that is “apotheosized” and whose talent and “free, open and outgoing nature” engendered admiration from everyone whom was fortunate enough to encounter him as he was THE darling of the international culture scene in New York and Paris. James Baldwin called him his “spiritual father.”
Remembering THE Greatest artists of the 20th century, the ‘amazing and invariable’ Beauford Delaney, the “Portraitist of the Famous”, who’s masterpieces are trumpeted as cutting-edge work in Black aesthetics, stylistic evolution from representation to pure abstraction, with new and radical theories with his techniques and expression of the politics of Black arts, affording him his very own, singular serious stature among abstract expressionists, transforming the critical landscape into a growing interest in his creation of “Black Abstraction”!
For more than a decade, Delaney showed compelling, vibrant images of energetic life: produced engaging abstract works, portraits, landscapes, and abstractions celebrated for their brilliance and technical complexity with his dramatic stylistic shift from figurative compositions of life to abstract expressionist studies of color and light, powerful works of art and culture, illuminate some of Delaney’s most innovative years and firmly place his work among the dominant art movements of the day.
James Baldwin and Beauford Delaney in Harlem
The fascinating Beauford Delaney is a Modern artist who produced engaging portraits, landscapes, and abstractions celebrated for their brilliance and technical complexity with his dramatic stylistic shift from figurative compositions of New York life to abstract expressionist studies of color and light following his move to Paris in 1953, illuminate some of Delaney’s most innovative years and firmly place his work among the dominant art movements of the day! 
The career of Beauford Delaney (1901-79) was mainly working with Expressionism, Harlem Renaissance who’s first exhibition was New Names In American Art: Recent Contributions To Painting And Sculpture By Negro Artists at The Renaissance Society in Chicago, IL in 1944, and the most recent exhibition was Art Basel Miami Beach 2020 – online viewing only at Art Basel Miami Beach in Miami Beach, FL in 2020. Beauford Delaney is mostly exhibited in United States, but also had exhibitions in Germany, United Kingdom and elsewhere. Delaney has 10 solo shows and 79 group shows over the last 76 years (for more information, see biography). Delaney has also been in 7 art fairs but in no biennials. The most important show was Beauford Delaney: From New York to Paris at Philadelphia Museum of Art in Philadelphia, PA in 2005. Other important shows were at The Minneapolis Institute of Arts in Minneapolis, MN and The Studio Museum in Harlem in New York City, NY. Beauford Delaney has been exhibited with Norman Lewis and Romare Bearden. Beauford Delaney’s art is in 9 museum collections, at France at the Museum of Modern Art , École des Beaux-Arts, Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, NY and The Art Institute of Chicago in Chicago, IL, featured in Jet and Playboy magazines among others.
Beauford Delaney is ranked among the Top 10 globally, and in United States. Delaney’s best rank was in 1944, the artist’s rank has improved over the last 5 years, with the most dramatic change in 1992.

Lyman Bostock signs RICHEST contract in Professional Team Sports and Baseball History with Angles owner Gene Autry
Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim, Bostock’s agent, told The Sporting News that “we just plan to sit back, rub our hands and wait for the money to fall into them,” the ballplayer surely cringed. He wasn’t after the most lucrative contract — just the happiest lifestyle. “Lyman’s a different kind of guy,” says al-Hakim, who often refuses to speak of Bostock in the past tense. “Back then he wanted to be comfortable. I remember one conversation we had early on. I sat him down and said ‘This is the money you’re making now. So what would you do if you made $400,000. How about $500,000? How about $750,000?’ The more money I mentioned, the less comfortable he became. At the end of the conversation, I laughed and said, ‘Lyman, shut up, sit down and let me handle things. Because you’d sign for $1 just to play.'”
Outfielder Lyman Bostock, on his 27th birthday, signed a five-year contract with the California Angels Monday for a $3.5 million plus-the most lucrative deal ever for a team sport athlete.
Lyman Bostock signs RICHEST contract in Baseball History with Angles owner Gene Autry
The unprecedented deal includes a FULLY GUARANTEED, five year, $600,000 annual salary, $500,000 signing bonus, a $500,000 Interest free loan, and a $200,000 Interest free business contract loan!
The signing of Bostock culminated an incredible financial turnabout for the former Minnesota Twin, who played out his option last season and hit 336, second in the American League to teammate Rod Carew’s .388.
Slapped with the maximum 20% pay cut invoked by club owner Calvin Griffith when he refused to sign, Bostock worked last summer for $20,000.
As soon as the ’78 season began, Bostock felt the weight of excessive dollar signs. He collected just two hits in his first 10 games and on April 18 asked then-Angels manager Dave Garcia to bench him for the second game of a three-game series at Seattle. So humiliated was Bostock that on road trips he began to ask that meals be sent up to his hotel room. On April 30, following an 0-for-4 effort against Toronto that dropped his average to .147, Bostock told the media that, having been rebuffed by owner Gene Autry in his attempt to refuse that month’s paycheck, he would give his April salary to charity. “I just can’t make that kind of money and not produce,” he said. “I don’t feel that I’ve done enough for this month.” 
To some, Bostock’s refusal to accept his salary reeked of a cheesy
PR stunt — overpaid ballplayer seeks to win over fans. But it wasn’t.
Bostock was genuinely humiliated by his performance. Here was a man who loved to hit, who spent most of his waking hours contemplating the intricacies of the game, hitting below the Mendoza Line. Forget $3.5 million, Bostock didn’t believe he warranted a dime. “He felt the burden of expectations,” al-Hakim says. “I was like, ‘Lyman, you have to take the money! You have to!'” Bostock refused, instead donating $36,000 to a handful of causes, including his church, Vermont Square Methodist in South Central Los Angeles, which ran recovery programs for drug and alcohol addicts. 
At a time when the egomaniacal ways of Reggie “The Straw That Stirs the Drink” Jackson made daily headlines in New York, Bostock’s gesture won over legions of fans. Wrote The New York Times: “Lyman Bostock is hitting 1.000 in integrity. His batting average, though, is .147.” 
With a dozen or so family members among the 7,953 fans in attendance, Bostock went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored, raising his average to .296, ninth best in the American League. He had more than doubled his batting average from the April salary donation month!
That night, Sept. 23, 1978, Bostock was shot and killed in Gary, Ind. When he was murdered that chilly fall night in Gary, the news went worldwide. Reporters from Brazil and Australia, England and Japan telephoned Tom Harbrecht, the Gary Police Department’s public information officer, desperate for details. “I probably worked 20 straight hours fielding all the requests for information,” Harbrecht says. “It was a huge story.”.
The FULLY GUARANTEED contract was PAID in full, after he was murdered on the last day of his first year of the contract with four years left to perform!

In a Historical, Unprecedented case in Sports and Professional Basketball, Abdul-Jalil and Superstar Management, along with NBA player Brian Taylor, negotiated an addendum to the standard NBA contract with the Denver Nuggets for a $250.000 interest free loan and making the contract “tax free”.
Taylor had a clause that stipulated be could become a free agent if the Nuggets breeched his contract in any manner.
The Nuggets made the first payment of $50,000 due him on time. He said they were 19 days late on the second payment before making a partial payment. The third payment, which was due Jan. 1, was over 13 days late, according to Taylor. They did.
So, in mid-season the team had sufficiently breached the contract, according to Jalil, defaulting by 13 days on the final part of a $250,000 interest free loan with the late payments that triggered the clause in the addendum that allowed Taylor to opt out of the contract. Taylor withheld his services from that point in the middle of the season.
Taylor’s agent, Abdul Jalil, said in NewYork that Taylor becomes a free agent immediately should the Nuggets deviate from any portion of the agreement. Jalil said the agreement is unique in that it contains a clause providing that should Taylor sign with another NBA team, Denver, may not receive compensation in the form of players, or draft choices. The compensation must be in the form of cash, half of which goes to Taylor and half to the Nuggets.
This clause reportedly was unprecedented in major league sports player contracts and expects NBA Commissioner Larry O’Brien to call a Collective Bargaining Federal Arbitration hearing on the case because the contract clause is so unique. Jalil is the agent who represented baseball infielder Junior Moore, who won free agency from the Atlanta Braves in a landmark contract agreement following the 1977 season in a Federal Arbitration case of Moore (MLBPA) vs. Atlanta Braves (MLB). Moore’s contract permitted him to declare himself a free agent based on his own value judgment of the amount of playing time he had with the Braves. Used as only a part-time performer, Moore chose to leave Atlanta and signed with the Chicago White Sox. The unprecedented case in Professional Sports and Basketball was necessary as the the addendum to the contract was the result of Taylor’s dispute of the contract that was originally negotiated by the players union director Larry Fleisher. The inherent problems that this situation provided for the National Basketball Association, the Denver Nuggets, and most importantly the Director of the NBA Players Union and the Union itself, were incredible, FILLED WITH CONFLICTS OF INTEREST, MULTIPLE INSTANCES OF FRAUD, COLLUSION, and MISREPRESENTATION! The case was so bad that Larry Fleisher, the Director of the NBA Players Union and the Union itself, could NOT represent Taylor in the Federal Arbitration hearing. In mid-season the team breached the contract with a late payment that triggered a clause in the addendum that allowed him to opt out of the contract. The player withheld his services in the middle of the season and the Nuggets and the NBA filed for Federal Arbitration. In prevailing in this matter, Taylor received his FULL PAY, an interest free loan, was declared free of his contract (“a Free Agent”), and allowed to negotiate a new contract with the team of his choice. Cite Arbitration Decision in the matter of “The National Basketball Association (Denver Nuggets) vs. The National Basketball Players Association (Brian Taylor)”, Jan. 25, 1978.
The Nuggets declined to have tapes of the Taylor negotiating sessions heard by renowned federal arbitrator Peter Seitz, who agreed Taylor was free, but that the Nuggets were due compensation.
After 13 months of being lusted after by as many as 15 NBA teams, after megabuck negotiations with everyone from 76er owner R. Fitz Dixon to the Lakers Jack Kent Cooke, Brian Taylor has returned And he did not come or go cheaply. “The San Diego Clippers signed Brian on Feb 15 for $150,000 for the remaining regular season games and the playoffs” said Taylor’s agent Abdul Jalil. Clipper playoff hopes are enhanced for it. Although Taylor has played only briefly so far. Taylor will become a free agent once again at the end of this season, continuing a cycle that saw him leave Denver in a contract dispute in the middle of last season. The Nuggets will receive compensation from San Diego for Taylor. Two prior deals fell through. Philadelphia was set to compensate with Steve Mix and a No 1 draft pick, but Taylor vetoed. Jack Kent Cooke and Taylor came to financial terms—a four year, $1.7 million deal but Denver asked for Jamaal Wilkes and Adrian Dantley as compensation to discourage the Lakers. San Diego then shelled out $1.3 million over three years to resign guard Brian Taylor.
Brian Taylor was a high school All American in football and basketball, in 1968 led the Perth Amboy High School Boys Basketball team to a New Jersey State Championship by scoring 84 points. The 6’2” guard played College basketball for Princeton University where he played on many USA All-Star Teams, and after his junior year in 1972, he was selected by the Seattle SuperSonics in the second round of the 1972 NBA draft, however Taylor signed a professional basketball contract with the New York/Jersey Nets and became the American Basketball Association Rookie of the Year during the 1972-73 season. Taylor played four seasons with the Nets, was elected to two All Star teams and won two ABA championships as the Nets won the final ABA championship game in 1976. Taylor joined the Kansas City Kings in 1976, where he averaged 17 points in his initial season and was named to the NBA All Defensive Team. Taylor also played for the Denver Nuggets and the San Diego Clippers, before a torn achilles tendon forced his retirement in 1982. Known as the “BT EXPRESS”, he still has the NBA record as the GREATEST 3 Point Career Shooting from 1981-86.

Abdul Jalil Historic use of Interest-Free Loans upon the Federal Tax Laws Published in Universities Law Reviews, Scholarly Commons, and multiple Course Outlines, Student Journals
Abdul Jalil negotiated a series of contracts that included many unprecedented benefits to the individual clients, one of which was interest-free loans that could be forgiven. Upon review by the Internal Revenue Service, the contracts and  returns where thrown out and challenged by the IRS as the IRS filed suit. After an 8 year legal battle, he prevailed in Federal Tax Court and established that Interest free Loans where in fact legal. This unprecedented legal ruling was established as a standard in the Tax Laws and was written in several National Law Journals.

The Historic “al-Hakim” Tax Code §7872 [692] Ruling
After al-Hakim’s victory in the Federal Tax Courts against the Tax Commissioner, in December 2000 the IRS moved to change the Tax Codes with the historic “al-Hakim” Tax Code §7872 [692] Ruling. The IRS changed the Federal Tax Codes such that it now “prevents no-interest loans” and was instituted to eliminate and close the Federal Income Tax loop-hole created with al-Hakim’s use of interest free loans in sports and entertainment financial transactions.

1977- The Major Leagues of Professional Baseball Clubs (Atlanta Braves) vs. The Major League Baseball Players Association (Alvin Jr. Moore) Jerry Gandy- Richmond Independent: Press Row on Jr. Moore[/caption]
One of the earliest Professional Sports contract controversies involved Major League Baseball Player Free Agency that arose as the result of an unprecedented, landmark contract between Alvin “Junior” Moore and the Atlanta Braves in which a Special Covenant gave Moore the right to demand a trade which could not be consummated without his prior consent if he was dissatisfied with his playing time. In the event that a trade could not be consummated by the end of the 1977 championship season, Moore would become a free agent if he so desired. See “The Major Leagues of Professional Baseball Clubs (Atlanta Braves) vs. The Major League Baseball Players Association (Alvin Jr. Moore)”.
Alvin “Junior” Moore was only a rookie, yet here are the terms of the contract his agent Abdul-Jalil put together for him:
-The Braves were to pay Moore $75,000 that season. That was only his salary.
-They also were to pay him a $50,000 bonus and provide him with an additional $50,000 interest-free loan.
That’s was historic for a rookie, but wait, there’s more coming.
The imaginative, foresighted agent Abdul-Jalil saw to it that four other unique clauses were written into the Atlanta Braves contract of Moore.
“If Moore is dissatisfied with his playing time, he can submit a letter to the Braves notifying them of same, who then must initiate a trade to the team of Moore’s choice, which can only be consummated with his consent. If there is no trade by the end of the season, the contract is voided and he becomes a free agent.”
1) The first unique clause gave Moore the option of demanding a trade to another team of his choice upon his notice to the team of his dissatisfaction with his playing time; becoming a free agent simply by notifying the Braves of his intention, which works out to be the same as anytime he choses. Under the present Basic Agreement between the players and the owners, a player becomes a free agent ONLY after six-year service requirement with a team has been fulfilled AND only after the second year he plays for a team without signing a contract the previous year.
2) The second unique clause allowed Moore to veto any trade the Braves might involve him in if he did not approve of the team in the proposed trade;
3) The third unique clause gave him the option of choosing the team he wished to be traded to;
4) The forth unique clause gave Moore the option of becoming a free agent if a trade to a team of his choice in not consummated. Under the then present Basic Agreement between the players and the owners, a player becomes a free agent the second year only after he plays for a team without signing a contract the previous year.
What club owner in the world would ever sign a rookie to a contract like that?
The contract was signed by Ted Turner, the Braves’ owner, March 14, 1977.
When National League President Chub Feeney first saw Moore’s contract and its special freedom clause, he rejected it disapproving this Special Covenant and on April 28, Feeney, wrote a letter to Bill Lucas, the Braves’ Director of Player Personnel.
The letter said:
“Specific covenants contained in Alvin Moore’s contract are disapproved because it (the contract) contains provisions inconsistent with the reserve system article of the new Basic Agreement.
Please be sure the player receives a copy of this letter.”
The Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) filed a Federal grievance on the ground that actual or potential additional benefits were provided for the player within the meaning of the collective agreement. The clubs maintained that the free agency provisions in the 1976 agreement were exclusive, providing the only basis upon which free agency rights could be exercised.
But the union argued that there were still other avenues to free agency, such as an unconditional release by a club because the player was not sufficiently qualified. The arbitrator held, in this case, that “the six-year service requirement through which a player could exercise free agency was for the individual club’s benefit in the sense that it would want to retain the player for a particular period of time.” Thus, the benefit of “long-term title and reservation rights” could be waived by the club. On the other hand, the reentry mechanism through which other clubs would have an opportunity to negotiate with a player who becomes a free agent was a matter covered by all the collective bargaining agreement, so an attempt by club and player to evade such procedures would be “inconsistent” and thus prohibited. Said the Arbitrator:
There is clear merit in the Association’s argument that the words “additional benefits to the Player” should be liberally construed to support a wide variety of benefits to a Player over and above the benefits accorded to him by the Basic Agreement. Though covenants containing such benefits may be “inconsistent” with a particular provision of the Agreement dealing with the same subject matter, there is logic in the Association’s argument that they are not, in fact, “inconsistent” because Article II authorizes such inconsistencies where they provide additional benefits to the Player.”?
Marvin Miller, the MLBPA Executive Director said “Junior Moore’s contract has done more for baseball as anything in the basic agreement just signed by the Players Association and the owners”.
Moore went on to sign a very lucrative, multi year contract with the Chicago White Sox.

2005- Federal Complaint with United States Attorney General, Department of Justice, of Hate Crime of Islamophobia and Xenophobia
In 2005 he filed a federal complaint with the United States Attorney General, Department of Justice, of a hate crime of Islamophobia and Xenophobia committed against him by Judge David C. Lee during a trial in Superior Court of Alameda County, California, that is moving forward with the investigation and charges of criminal extrinsic fraud upon the court of the State of California, spoliation of evidence, and the doctrine “unclean hands” against defendants/hostile intervener AAA Insurance; Ron Cook and the law firm of WILLOUGHBY, STUART & BENING; defense counsel Steve Barber and the law firm of Ropers Majeski; and others. The complaint, drafted and filed by al-Hakim in pro per, has broad based support from Democrats and Republicans, was submitted by Congresswoman Barbara Lee with the offices of Congressmen John Conyers, and Charles Rangel, has been review by several legal experts, with advocacy by former Republican Senator J. C. Watts, a client of al-Hakim’s.
The Rob Bonta, Hinds and Fair’s COINTELPRO 2K22 parties ALSO include the “COURTEL” legal system of judges wherein the TARGETED PARTY is NOT having a trial, but is being “railroaded by the court in a case that is ALREADY fixed against the YOU!”
ABDUL-JALIL has 16 Disqualifications from Judicial Challenges For Cause filed against Judges Paul Herbert, Jennifer Madden, Yolanda Northridge, Sue Alexander, Taylor Culver, James Reilly, Micheal Ballachey, Winifred Smith, Dennis Hayashi; with Evelio Grillo, after 5 challenges and Stephan Kaus, after 4 challenges, BOTH Recused in two cases each; where Kim Colwell, Henry Needham Jr. and Judith Ford (appellate review timed out without court response) did not answer the last challenges filed and served against them thus consenting to the challenges. Judges Ronni MacLaren, Frank Roesch and Jo-Lynne Lee issued ORDERS OF SELF DISQUALIFICATION/RECUSAL- IN THE SAME 8 HOUR WORK DAY!! This fact demonstrates that there has been and continues to be pervasive illegal ex-parte communications between the judges regarding al-Hakim because al-Hakim has NEVER had any contact with some judges that recused. Ret. Judge Richard Hodge recused after being appointed an umpire by Roesch in the CSAA appraisal case (administrative hearing) after being a judge in the case.
Those 16 Recusals DO NOT include Judge Jon Tigar’s 2 RECUSALS, 1) Staged Recusal granting the April 30, 2007 al-Hakim first Challenge for Cause, and 2) again Recusing in a matter pending in Federal Court. In Tigar’s First Staged Recusal defense counsel Stephan Barber moved to represent Tigar filing a Motion for Reconsideration to deny Tigar’s recusal and restore his illegal place in this case.
Tigar GRANTED HIS MOTION, restoring HIMSELF as judge, officially made himself a defendant and fourth element in this case though sitting as the judge in this matter, he is now a defendant, co-defense counsel and deputy defense judge ruling in matters that he has lied and has been deceitful about and is personally involved in, was represented by defense counsel Barber himself in an action that was brought by Barber BEFORE TIGAR to establish HIS right to sit and rule in the same matter that HE is now personally involved in and HE sits in judgment of HIMSELF BEFORE HIMSELF!!! Tigar’s representation by the defense had the unfortunate consequence of making him a litigant, obliged to the defense and their counsel by leaving his defense to one of the litigants appearing before him in the same case. Judges should be umpires rather than players. This is a travesty, a mockery of justice with clear conflict while it wreaks of corruption, collusion.18+ Disqualifications!
In May 2022 Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal and Senator Elizabeth Warren introduced the Judicial Ethics and Anti-Corruption Act to overhaul our nation’s judicial ethics laws and restore public faith in our court system. This legislation is cosponsored by Representatives Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), Chair of the House Judiciary Committee; André Carson (D-Ind.); Sylvia Garcia (D-Texas.); Katie Porter (D-Calif.); Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.); Madeleine Dean (D-Pa.); Mondaire Jones (D-N.Y.); Veronica Escobar (D-Texas); Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.); Jesús “Chuy” García (D-Ill.); Andy Levin (D-Mich.); Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.); Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.); Senators Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), Alex Padilla (D-Calif.), and Tina Smith (D-Minn.). 
“We can no longer stand by while our judges and justices take advantage of our system to build wealth and power at the expense of our country’s most marginalized. A system without basic ethics is a corrupt system,”. “People deserve impartial judges and justices who aren’t beholden to special interests or to their personal agenda. Nobody is above the law. Not even a Supreme Court Justice. My bill with Senator Warren will reinstate the checks and balances needed to ensure a fair and balanced judicial system that fulfills its promise of equal justice under the law.” said Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal.

November 1995-  M C Hammer in Russia, The Re-election of Russian President Boris Yeltsin by “Our Home Is Russia”, Russian Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin’s Political Party Prime Minister Chernomyrdin’s party was struggling to distance their leader from the unpopularity of the Government he headed, resolved to using western style campaign strategy. “Our Home” promised economic stability and continuation of the Democratic course of Yeltsin’s government.
November 1995 al-Hakim executive produced, produced, filmed and broadcast on Russian National TV a series of concerts in St. Petersburg and concerts in Moscow by MC Hammer in an urban style, “Rap-The-Vote” to secure the 18-45 voter turnout and re-election of President Boris Yeltsin. Polling after the concerts was overwhelmingly positive..
“Hammer is our father and rap is a very serious subject for me and if Chernomyrdin can give us Hammer then we will give him our vote.” said Oleg, an 18-year old Russian rap fan in attendance.
Being Prime Minister gave Chernomyrdin a huge advantage in access to Russian voters, with slick campaign posters, he told AP “we are using American pop music performances to drum up support among Russian youth for his political campaign”; the video scenes showed M.C. Hammer performing. Chernomyrdin’s travels around Russia in his capacity as Prime Minister, but looked more like the political campaign trail of an American President.
This strategy was trumpted as “world altering” for saving Russian democracy with Yeltsin’s re-election ensuring continuity in the evolution of Russia and securing world peace.
This strategy was heralded world wide by political pundits as “incredibly brilliant”, a “triumph for democratic reform” and “world altering” in it’s effect of having “saved” Russian democracy, as Yeltsin was the only alternative in ensuring continuity in the evolution of Russia and securing world peace.
This coup, a miraculous event in history, was depicted and canonized in a 2004 film “Spinning Boris” starring Jeff Goldblum, Anthony LaPaglia and Liev Schreiber.
“Spinning Boris” The Best President of Russia America Ever Had   ..L. A. Times Review
Jeff Goldblum, Anthony LaPaglia and Liev Schreiber star as a trio of elite American political campaign operatives who were hired in secret to manage Russian President Boris Yeltsin’s election campaign in 1996. He’s polling at 6 percent with the election a few months away. First, they must get someone’s attention; they succeed finally with Yeltsin’s daughter, then it’s polling, focus groups, messages and spin. Even as Yeltsin’s numbers go up, they are unsure who hired them and if Yeltsin’s allies have a different plan in mind than victory. When the going gets toughest, they put a spin on their stake: democracy and capitalism must win. They orchestrate the most spectacular political comeback of the twentieth century – as they “sold” Boris Yeltsin to the Russian public gaining Yeltsin’s successful re-election.
The Re-election of Russian President Boris Yeltsin at Excerpts of “Clinton Secrets” in a book by JOHN DIAMOND
The campaign tactic was their most effective strategy, greatest strength- uniquely different and vastly superior to anything Russia had ever witnessed. This strategic plan with our expertise well grounded in modern American campaigning got Yeltsin re-elected. This was simply a matter of fact that he was the best the modern world could get compared to the alternative communist and he was fully supported by the U.S.
A State Department memorandum, marked “confidential,’’ summarized then President Bill Clinton’s meeting with Yeltsin at a summit in Egypt, where Clinton told Yeltsin he ”wanted to make sure that everything the United States did would have a positive impact and nothing should have a negative impact’’ on Yeltsin’s re-election. The memo added the U. S. wanted an upcoming summit with the Russian leader to be successful to “reinforce everything that Yeltsin had done.’’ Hammer Dedication to Jalil

The Legal Impact of the Historic Alvin “Junior” Moore Unprecedented Landmark Sports Contract Case

One of the earliest Professional Sports contract controversies involved Major League Baseball Player Free Agency that arose as the result of an unprecedented, landmark contract between Alvin “Junior” Moore and the Atlanta Braves in which a Special Covenant gave Moore the right to demand a trade which could not be consummated without his prior consent if he was dissatisfied with his playing time. In the event that a trade could not be consummated by the end of the 1977 championship season, Moore would become a free agent if he so desired.
Alvin “Junior” Moore was only a rookie, yet here are the terms of the contract his agent Abdul-Jalil put together for him:
-The Braves were to pay Moore $75,000 that season. That was only his salary.
-They also were to pay him a $50,000 bonus and provide him with an additional $50,000 interest-free loan.
That’s was historic for a rookie, but wait, there’s more coming.
The imaginative, foresighted agent Abdul-Jalil saw to it that four other unique clauses were written into the Atlanta Braves contract of Moore.
“If Moore is dissatisfied with his playing time, he can submit a letter to the Braves notifying them of same, who then must initiate a trade to the team of Moore’s choice, which can only be consummated with his consent. If there is no trade by the end of the season, the contract is voided and he becomes a free agent.”

1) The first unique clause gave Moore the option of demanding a trade to another team of his choice upon his notice to the team of his dissatisfaction with his playing time; becoming a free agent simply by notifying the Braves of his intention, which works out to be the same as anytime he choses. Under the present Basic Agreement between the players and the owners, a player becomes a free agent ONLY after six-year service requirement with a team has been fulfilled AND only after the second year he plays for a team without signing a contract the previous year.

2) The second unique clause allowed Moore to veto any trade the Braves might involve him in if he did not approve of the team in the proposed trade;

3) The third unique clause gave him the option of choosing the team he wished to be traded to;

4) The forth unique clause gave Moore the option of becoming a free agent if a trade to a team of his choice in not consummated. Under the then present Basic Agreement between the players and the owners, a player becomes a free agent the second year only after he plays for a team without signing a contract the previous year.
What club owner in the world would ever sign a rookie to a contract like that?
The contract was signed by Ted Turner, the Braves’ owner, March 14, 1977.
When National League President Chub Feeney first saw Moore’s contract and its special freedom clause, he rejected it disapproving this Special Covenant and on April 28, Feeney, wrote a letter to Bill Lucas, the Braves’ Director of Player Personnel.
The letter said:
“Specific covenants contained in Alvin Moore’s contract are disapproved because it (the contract) contains provisions inconsistent with the reserve system article of the new Basic Agreement.
Please be sure the player receives a copy of this letter.”
The Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) filed a Federal grievance on the ground that actual or potential additional benefits were provided for the player within the meaning of the collective agreement. The clubs maintained that the free agency provisions in the 1976 agreement were exclusive, providing the only basis upon which free agency rights could be exercised.
But the union argued that there were still other avenues to free agency, such as an unconditional release by a club because the player was not sufficiently qualified. The arbitrator held, in this case, that “the six-year service requirement through which a player could exercise free agency was for the individual club’s benefit in the sense that it would want to retain the player for a particular period of time.” Thus, the benefit of “long-term title and reservation rights” could be waived by the club. On the other hand, the reentry mechanism through which other clubs would have an opportunity to negotiate with a player who becomes a free agent was a matter covered by all the collective bargaining agreement, so an attempt by club and player to evade such procedures would be “inconsistent” and thus prohibited. Said the Arbitrator:
There is clear merit in the Association’s argument that the words “additional benefits to the Player” should be liberally construed to support a wide variety of benefits to a Player over and above the benefits accorded to him by the Basic Agreement. Though covenants containing such benefits may be “inconsistent” with a particular provision of the Agreement dealing with the same subject matter, there is logic in the Association’s argument that they are not, in fact, “inconsistent” because Article II authorizes such inconsistencies where they provide additional benefits to the Player.”?

Marvin Miller, the MLBPA Executive Director said “Junior Moore’s contract has done more for baseball as anything in the basic agreement just signed by the Players Association and the owners”

A Long Deep Drive to Collective Bargaining: Of Players, Owners, Brawls, and Strikes.
c. Individual v. Collective Interests. The case law of labor arbitration addresses a number of important issues as it explores the inner workings of a league. Cases which confront the tensions between the individual and the collective interest of the players are of particular importance to this analysis. Individuals may not always be served best by collective action. The individual may be able to obtain advantages for himself that run counter to agreements forged between the union and management. These individual advantages often must be curtailed, as the earlier discussions on the unit504 and exclusivity505 have revealed. An examination of some of these problems in the baseball context sharpens the focus. The Moore506 decision arose out of a special covenant between Alvin Moore and the Atlanta Braves. The National League President disapproved of this arrangement on the ground that the covenant was “inconsistent” with the basic agreement.507 The covenant stated that Moore could not be traded without his consent and could become a free agent at the end of the 1977 championship season “if he so desires.” 508 The players association challenged the disapproval of the contract in a grievance. The players association argued that the individual contract could not be regarded as “inconsistent” with the collective agreement since it accorded benefits not available under the basic agreement. The clubs contended that the covenant struck “at the very heart” of the negotiated reserve system. The argument was that the Braves, by providing free agency for Moore without reference to the contractual scheme contained in the collective agreement, ignored the other clubs’ interest in maintaining a competitive balance-the very objective of the negotiated reserve system.509 At the time the grievance was filed, Moore did not have six years service in the major leagues-a prerequisite to free agency under the labor contract between the parties. The covenant, moreover, made no reference to the quota and compensation provisions of the basic agreement. In response, the association noted that the agreement contemplated free agency through methods other than the reentry draft. By way of rejoinder, the clubs maintained that these other avenues were designed for players whose careers were ending, younger players, players of marginal skills or a default by the club.510 With regard to the former category, the clubs contended that “[lt was never contemplated that promises of outright release or termination would or could be used by individual Clubs and Players as a negotiating device or bargaining chip in order to evade the reentry procedure and other aspects of the reserve system.” 511 The arbitration panel held there was no reason that Moore could not negotiate conditional rights either to be traded or to become a free agent. The opinion stated: There is clear merit in the Association’s argument that the words ‘additional benefits to the Player’ should be liberally construed to support a wide variety of benefits to a player over and above the benefits accorded to him by the Basic Agreement. Though covenants containing such benefits may be “inconsistent” with a particular provision of the Agreement dealing with the same subject matter, there is logic in the Association’s argument that they are not, in fact, ‘inconsistent’ because Article II authorizes such inconsistencies where they provide additional benefits to the Player. The evidence… suggests the League Presidents have approved a number of special covenants in this light, where the ‘additional benefits to the Player’ were within the Club’s power to bestow. 512 Inasmuch as the Braves were not terminating Moore for lack of playing skill, the arbitrator decided that Moore could not escape the reentry draft provided for in the collective bargaining agreement. The procedure and “its related quota provisions protect the interests of all 26 Clubs and cannot be waived by the Atlanta Club in the circumstances of this case. 513 The fact is, however, that the modification of the length of service provisions negotiated between Atlanta and Moore, and circumvention of the reentry draft procedures, may affect the competitive balance in the league so as to promote the interests of some other clubs. If, for example, certain superstars became available earlier than provided for in the collective agreement, the resulting bidding wars would benefit wealthier teams such as the Yankees, Angels, and Braves. If, in contrast, the number of talented free agents available depressed the market, the impact could be immediate and substantial. In some instances, the players rather than the owners would be adversely affected. It is thus difficult to establish a clearly logical demarcation between length of service and other aspects of the reentry draft since one element protects the clubs in the league and the other does not. The Moore decision is probably the correct one. The additional benefits secured by individual players must be reconciled with the overriding procedures established by the collective agreement’s reentry draft. The second important case involved Mike Marshall, the 1974 Cy Young Award winner and erstwhile relief pitcher for the Minnesota Twins, among others.514 Marshall negotiated a special covenant with the Twins which permitted him to become a free agent after the 1978 season but “without regard to the compensation provisions therein.”515 The arbitrator, following Moore, concluded that the compensation provisions were designed for the benefit of all clubs and not merely the individual club which lost the player to free agency. While the arbitrator conceded that the club losing the player might waive its right to compensation, it would not waive the “detriment” or “cost” that the signing club would incur in the normal reentry draft procedure. 516 The recent Dave Winfield free agency episode created another problem. The Yankees, fearful that they would not be one of the thirteen teams able to draft Winfield, reportedly negotiated with the Padres to provide for an agreement between the Yankees and Winfield and a trade between the Padres and the Yankees based on that deal.517 This alleged agreement circumvented the reentry draft procedure and compensation and, in theory, imposed a cost on the signing club. The players association, however, accepted this procedure as compatible with the agreement because Winfield was able to use the prospect of free agency, limited only by the amateur draft compensation, as a vehicle to bargain for acceptable contract terms. The final group of baseball-related cases involve option clauses and right of refusal clauses in special covenants. In 1976, Carlton Fisk, Rick Burleson, and Gary Maddox negotiated provisions giving their respective clubs the right of first refusal at the end of their contracts. Their theory was that a player could reap the financial benefits of a bidding war while remaining with the club in cities like Boston and New York where there are many fringe benefits to being a famous ballplayer. The association objected to these covenants on the theory that they inevitably depress the bidding between clubs. An arbitrator took the position that a right of first refusal “could not possibly produce anything better than free agency.”‘ 518 This position seems flawed given the advantages that players might reap from such a provision. To take an extreme example, players cannot waive their right to be part of the free agent draft after six years, although they may do so indirectly by entering into a long-term contract. The grievance thus was settled in favor of the association 519 — a further step toward collectivizing the relationship. Another important variation on this theme of individual-collective tension involves negotiated option clauses. The Carlton Fisk award 520 decided that substantial performance by the Red Sox was not adequate to meet the option tender date of December 20 established under the collective agreement. 521 The arbitrator rejected the club’s reliance on extreme forfeiture as an excuse of the condition since the Red Sox already had received Fisk’s performance for salary paid between 1976 and 1980. This rationale is questionable in light of Fisk’s inability to play during most of 1979-although Fisk played in 1980 under adverse circumstances. The arbitrator’s comment that free agency status for Fisk was an “unfortunate consequence for the Club in comparison to the minor inconvenience to him flowing from the related contract tender”522 understates the matter. Another option clause case, the Tidrow arbitration,523 was of more precedental value. Tidrow, prior to joining the Chicago Cubs, signed a contract with the Yankees for 1977 to 1979 and then in 1978 negotiated an extension for 1980. The contract provided for compensation, some of it deferred, and stated that the club reserved the right to exercise an option on Tidrow’s services at a salary of $200,000 for 1981 by notifying Tidrow before December 20, 1980.524 The renewal option was exercised by a letter dated August 28, 1980. The players association objected to the renewal which purportedly blocked Tidrow’s access to the reentry draft on the ground that the special covenant containing the option did not constitute an actual or potential benefit to the player.525 The club contended that Tidrow had executed a contract for the succeeding season which was a contractual limitation on free agency rights. The arbitrator, however, held that the individual contract’s special covenants referred to the 1980 season.526 Tidrow thus could not be deemed to have executed a contract for 1981. The arbitrator also concluded that the agreement extracted from Tidrow all irrevocable offers to enter into a future contract. Moreover, since the players association successfully resisted incorporation of an option year in the collective agreement as a prerequisite to free agency–except for players like Fisk who had contracted prior to August 9, 1976 527 .-the arbitrator found the bargaining history to be “strong evidence” of an intent not to eliminate free agency through an option clause.528 Since Moore held that a contract could be inconsistent and yet acceptable if it provided an actual or potential benefit, further arbitral inquiry was requested. The arbitrator discussed the contention that Tidrow had benefitted through the economic “package” that he received with a guaranteed contract rather than the standard contract. Any detriment, reasoned the arbitrator, could be offset by a potential benefit. The option clause, however, must provide its own benefit. Tidrow, experienced in negotiations and aware of free agency’s benefits, could have perceived an option clause as being more advantageous. In making his determination, the arbitrator found the following to be conclusive: “By remaining silent until the latter part of 1979 and retaining $100,000 in bonuses for signing the contract he now seeks to overturn, Tidrow led the Cubs-who acquired his contract in apparent good faith-to act in reliance on his evident acceptance of all of its terms.”529 Tidrow accordingly was estopped because of his tardy disavowal, his actual or constructive knowledge that he was losing free agency, and detrimental reliance by the Cubs. While the arbitrator stated that clubs might attempt to circumvent the collective agreement through such covenants as making optional renewal clauses a condition precedent to all contracts, such was not the case in Tidrow. Tidrow is thus a “narrow holding” which again emphasizes the tension between collective and individual interests.

Alvin Moore vs Atlanta Braves
Major League Baseball Arbitration Proceeding
MLB-MLBPA Arb. 77-18 (1977)
Professor A. Porter

Facts
Alvin Moore (plaintiff) signed a one-year contract with the Atlanta Braves. The contract contained a clause that said if Moore was not satisfied with his playing time, the Braves were required to trade him to a team approved by Moore. The covenant also stated that if a trade were not completed by the end of the season, Moore was allowed to become a free agent if he so chose. At the time, Moore had less than one year of service in Major League Baseball (MLB). The league president (defendant) disapproved of this covenant. The president believed that the covenant was inconsistent with the collective-bargaining agreement agreed to by the league and the players’ union. This agreement required players to have a minimum of five years of service in MLB before they could become eligible for free agency. The players’ union filed a grievance on Moore’s behalf. The union cited the collective-bargaining agreement’s clause permitting special covenants that benefit players. The union maintained that the president could disapprove of a special covenant only if the covenant did not benefit the player. The league countered that this covenant effectively created an entirely new reserve system, contrary to what the league and players had previously agreed to. According to the league, the reserve system created by the collective-bargaining agreement was created to provide for an even and equitable distribution of players among all of the teams. Additionally, the collective-bargaining agreement contained a free agent re-entry procedure. By giving Moore the ability to determine his own free agency, the league argued, the covenant contravened the agreed-upon system. The league contended that a covenant that violated the collective-bargaining agreement and the rights of the other 25 MLB teams could not be permitted to stand simply because it benefited a player. The issue was brought before an arbitrator.

Alvin Moore & Atlanta Braves (1977)

Facts: Moore had a covenant with the Braves that stated Moore could become a free agent if he was not traded by the end of the season. This covenant is inconsistent with the CBA which mentions that only 5 year vets could be eligible for free-agency. Moore was only a 1 year vet. The player’s union sued on behalf of Moore.

Holding: Covenant between the Braves and Moore stands.

Reasoning: A Major League Baseball player and a team may agree to a contract that includes unique covenants, so long as those covenants do not infringe on the protected interests of other teams. Here, the 5 year vet standard is interpreted by the court as a provision that protects other teams. Since no interests of other teams are being protected, Moore’s covenant can stay.

Abdul-Jalil, Superstar Management worked PRIVATE EVENTS for members of Saudi Royal Family In Giza at Pyramids

Abdul-Jalil and Superstar Management has worked in PRIVATE EVENTS with several members of the Saudi Arabian Royal family including His Royal Highness (HRH) Prince Turki Ibn Abdel Aziz and his wife His Royal Highness Princess Hend Shams El-Din El-Fassi of Saudi Arabia.
Prince Turki, a Saudi Arabian politician and businessman was a member of the House of Saud, he was the full brother of King Fahd and King Salman. Prince Turki was a member of the Sudairi Seven, a powerful faction of brothers within the Al Saud.
His parents were King Abdulaziz and Hassa bint Ahmed Al Sudairi. He was known as Turki the second because he was the second son of King Abdulaziz named “Turki”.
Prince Turki studied at the Princes’ School established by his father.
Turki bin Abdulaziz assumed the Riyadh principality delegation in 1957, because his brother Salman, governor of Riyadh (later King Salman), travelled with King Saud to Lebanon.
In 1960 he also served as the acting governor when Prince Salman was on leave.
Turki bin Abdulaziz was appointed deputy defense minister on 24 July 1969 by a royal order. His tenure lasted until 1978 when he was forced to resign from office due to his marriage to Hend Shams El-Din El-Fassi.
The stunning beautiful 20-year-old Princess Hend Shams El-Din El-Fassi, a Gulf Royalty socialite in the Mubarak era, was perhaps the FIRST Arab Feminist, in her fighting for womens liberation and rights, she became a tabloid queen. For nine years, the family and their entourage travelled the World, enjoying a lavish and outlandish culture of life that came to define the “Lifestyles of The Rich and Famous” with Robin Leach with their very own “champagne wishes and caviar dreams.” They had multiple popular destinations for vacation, recreation, and resort residences all over the world, while they retreated to Miami, Florida, USA and their compound occupied the top three floors of the Ramses Hilton, Cairo, Egypt. They also had the fabulous 5 Star Marriott Mena House Resort, in Giza at the Pyramids in Egypt.
We performed events for Princess Hend and the young Sheik Turki in Giza at the Pyramids in Egypt.
