The concierge who was held at gunpoint during Kim Kardashian’s Parisian robbery has revealed he raised concerns about the hotel’s security six years ago.
The man known as Abdulrahman has told The Daily Mail he warned Hotel de Pourtales that the security was below par, and even suggested ’someone might die' as a result.
‘There was no real security at all. It’s a choice. The hotel doesn’t mind about security,’ he said. ‘We told them years and years before, you have to make a camera, you have to put [in place] a security process, about keys. Nothing was locked, there was no proper security there.’
In a series of shocking claims, the father-of-one says the hotel opted not to have security cameras so guests could be assured privacy, and the security code for the front door had remained the same for years.
The 39-year-old is now planning to take legal action against the hotel.
‘Immediately afterwards, I was very angry, and the first one I blamed was the hotel,’ he said. ‘They are responsible, I think. And I still blame them now.
‘I told them, look what you did! What I told you for six years? Security cameras and other things are meant for days like today, to prevent these things from happening. If you have good guards, electronic systems to lock the doors, it can be possible to secure the hotel.’
