Either way, I guess noone gets repaid unless the project is "officially cancelled".

PS no answer from the call centre at 10.30 this morning...
20 Sama Dubai employees joined TECOM today.

I don't think this will be cancelled. It may be redesigned. They may change the name and promotional stuff but at the end it will go ahead, of course with years of delay.

Five face court in first corruption probe case

Five real estate executives are set to appear in court next month in the first case connected to the crackdown on alleged corruption in Dubai, it was revealed on Thursday.

Four former employees of real estate company Sama Dubai are to appear in the Dubai Criminal Court of First Instance with a fifth defendant from another company.

Among the defendants is the former chief executive of Sama Dubai’s project The Lagoons who is charged with asking for bribes in the form of properties and cash from clients, which led the company to incur a loss of $37.3m, according to prosecution officials quoted in UAE daily The National.
Three sales executives at The Lagoons are also charged with taking bribes for property transactions while the fifth defendant, who worked for a local property developer, is charged with accepting a bribe, the paper reported.

The news follows on from an announcement this week by the Dubai attorney general, Issam al Humaidan, that a long running investigation into the dealings of the former chief executive of Deyaar, Zack Shahin, and three co-defendants was close to completion.

Lagoons website down!

It seems Sama Dubai does not even have enough money to pay for their website maintenance and hosting! What a shame...

This project never looked believable, especially not those crazy towers in the middle, that said now its under the wing of Dubai Properties, there is a chance it will get done one day.

I think that was great. I especially thought going from the most conservative lender to the most exposed real-estate lender during these times was a stroke of pure genius. Time will show it was a great move

The 70 million square feet ‘The Lagoons’ is expected to catalyze Dubai’s position as an international destination offering a perfect retreat for residents looking for the highest possible quality of life within a true metropolitan environment. The project considers environmental living as a core principle that is manifested throughout the development to ensure harmonious existence with the surrounding ecosystems.

lol!
