    It is clear that the Dubai police are far more intelligent than the murderers, and French and British police, as within 24 hours after they found a guy, in a chained and locked hotel room, apparently dead from natural causes, they had figured out that a murder had been committed, and they had videos and photos of the whole gang, and a time line on the crime. It is ironic, that within 24 hours, the Dubai police had enough evidence to convict anyone except O.J. Simpson, and the French and Britsh police cannot evfigure out what happened on their end. If the French and British police were competent, considering that the Dubai police handed them names, dates, times, pictures, flight schedules, etc. they should have been able to identify and arrest the murderers and their accomplics within hours. As the French and British passports cannot be trusted, and quickly and securely verified, no doubt international businesses and hotels will begin to take a very close look at people with French and British passports. Also it is likely that other criminals will exploit the weaknesses of the French and British passport systems, to fly around the world, cash bad checks, make phony business deals, and run up huge travel, hotel, and Visa bills, etc.
