Datu Fuad A. Kiram I is one of the sons (not a firstborn) of Sultan Esmail Kiram I. He is a Royal Datu and one of the Kiram heirs but never a Raja Muda or a Sultan. At least not legitimately! He was content of that fact before he met a certain Dux Legazpi by accident who is a CON-ARTIST in 2004. Dux aka Omar saw an opportunity to make potential wealth knowing that Fuad being a royalty but destitute will be his puppet in his grand scheme of things. Omar made a business proposal to Fuad which Fuad took the bait hook, line and sinker. Fuad then introduced Omar to his nephew, Rajamuda Muedzul-Lail "Butch" T. Kiram. They met in Zamboanga and Butch was asked by the two stooges to confer them a title of Regent Sultan of Sabah and Datuk respectively which Butch obliged. Fuad signed a pledge of allegiance to his nephew, the Rajamuda. Check the proof below.

Then Omar started his Con-Artist games along with Fuad meeting with Malaysian officials unbeknownst to Butch and asked for 10B dollars so they won't make noise about reclaiming Sabah. Needless to say, the Prime Minister of Malaysia just laughed at them. First of all, the only Sultan that the Philippine and Malaysian governments recognized is Sultan Jamalul who was Sultan Punjungan's Raja Muda and who ascended to the Sultan throne after Sultan Punjungan's death. That was not the first attempt either. Later on, when they started their advocacy on facebook and deceived many of us with their intentions. They asked for Anne de Bretagne's help to open the back door for them being that Anne knew PM Najib when she lived in Malaysia as country chief of a European business concern. But that did not materialize either.
In the meantime, Omar pays for Fuad's rent of a modest house in Angono, Rizal for around five hundred pesos at that time. Last I heard from Fuad's third wife, Farida who he abandoned with their daughter, it's still the same. Fuad went back to his second wife and probably with some influence from Omar. Omar used to see Farida around when she and Fuad were still together. Fuad and Omar were said to be selling FAKE Datuk titles for money. That's how they made their money, being business partners. Omar as a Con-Artist has always been smooth and believable. He bragged to Farida that he is a graduate of Heraldry. It's the tool that he uses now to bestow FAKE COAs and titles. But according to our own expert in COAs, he made some mistakes in those COAs but nobody else is the wiser since most of us don't know how an authentic COA is supposed to look like with every minute details. But conferment is nevertheless, illegal since they are not legitimate Sultan and Prince.

Omar asked Butch to come up to Manila to meet some people. Omar introduced Butch to EJ Ekker whose association with Tagean-Tallano Estate has been revoked. EJ Ekker is known to be a "Treasure Hunter" for gold bullions. Omar is convinced that the Kiram family has gold bullions hidden in some banks. Butch did not and does not believe this and neither does Sultan Jamalul. So Butch naturally did not associate with EJ Ekker. He was not comfortable with the arrangement. He said that he is content being in his farm earning from the land more than enough for their needs. He even supports Fuad's third wife Farida and their daughter Habiba since Fuad abandoned them and has not given a single cent since the baby was born. These are some of the reasons that Fuad's family is bitter about. They are ashamed of Fuad's abandonment of little Habiba. With Omar’s manipulation, they concocted a story of baselessaccusations against Butch that have not been proven. Instead, Butch obtained apolice clearance and school clearance showing his clean records and statingthat no such incidents ever happened.

Fuad and Farida's marriage certificate filled out by Fuad himself. The next photo are the collage of their wedding pictures.
But the last straw that broke the camel's back was when Omar had connived with the Council of 15 within the MNLF to replace Nur Misuari with Hatimil Hassan as chairman of the MNLF who was in jail at that time. Omar tried to dissuade Butch from visiting Nur Misuari in jail in Manila. Butch had to travel to Manila to see Nur. Omar was meeting the Council of 15 in Manila and they needed Butch signature to implement their scheme. So Omar falsified Butch signature in a hotel with the Council of 15. Someone rushed and flew to Sulu to alert Butch of what had just happened. Butch then stripped Fuad and Omar's titles. Check the proof below.
Revocation letter of Fuad and Omar's titles
Fuad was also ex-communicated by the Regent Sultan or Crowned Prince, Esmail Kiram II for the following reasons:
1. Desecration of the Royal Order of Succession by manipulating the genealogy removing the true successor in line to the throne. (This is the line of succession document they falsified and posted on their website).
2. Desecration of the Throne of the Royal Kingdom of Sulu and North Borneo by replacing the Royal Nobility titles with English Nobility titles. (This is their modus operandi of conferring European titles to gather support disrespecting the Muslim tradition and the Sultanate royalty).
3. Desecration of the Royal House of Sulu by appointing a non-Royal blood to the Throne of the Royal House. (This is the appointment of Dux Legazpi who changed his name to Omar Kiram then proclaimed himself as Grand Prince and Prince Marshal of Sulu and Sabah, and who has no single drop of Kiram blood nor a royalty blood).
The letter excommunicating Fuad Kiram
Shortly after that, Fuad and Omar moved on to higher ranks of proclaiming themselves as Sultan of Sulu an Sabah and Grand Prince and Prince Marshal which is a made up title to suit Omar's intentions to manipulate and deceive people. Fuad's coronation was held in a basketball court far away from the seat of the Sultanate in Sulu. There was no single royalty in attendance and only attended by some people who watched out of curiosity. It was so undignified for a Sultan of Sulu and Sabah. It's because the proclamation and coronation was illegal on the first place. In their FAKE conferments of FAKE European titles, they even changed the name of a place of Sulu (Maimbung) which is the seat of the Sultanate to Royal Maimbung. The conferment of FAKE European titles are against the old Muslim tradition and disrespecting that tradition. One would ask why they would do that. For as long as there are KSPs (Kulang sa pansin) and BSS (Bilib sa sarili) there will be takers. They gather supporters that way by talk of FAKE royalty and nobility. But none of them are nobles even with titles granted to them. How can one be noble when none of the titles are of nobility and to top it all, was bestowed by a FAKE Sultan and Prince? So FAKE or not, it's a usual QUID PRO QUO!
These are the photos of Fuad's self-coronation in a very undignified venue, a basketball court away from the seat of the Sultanate. Ask yourself, WHY? The anwer is obvious. He is not a legitimate Sultan. Only posing as one, part of their schemes with the Master Puppeteer.
THOUGH FUAD IS ONE OF THE SONS OF SULTAN EMAIL I HE IS NOT THE RAJA MUDA! IT WAS THE SULTAN'S BROTHER, PUNJUNGAN.
THEY CANNOT CONTRADICT THE OLD MUSLIM TRADITION BY THE RUMA BECHARA AND THE SIGNED PETITION APPROVED BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE PHILIPPINES. TO BECOME SULTAN, ONE HAS TO BE A RAJA MUDA FIRST SELECTED BY THE RUMA BECHARA AND NOT WHOEVER JUST BECAUSE HE IS A SON. THERE IS A LINE OF SUCCESSION TO FOLLOW. FUAD WAS NEVER CLOSED TO BE AN HEIR APPARENT.
WE HAVE ALL DOCUMENTS OF PROOF IN OUR COLLAGE OF PHOTOS. BUT EVEN IF WE TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THEIR INSISTENCE TO USE THE LAW OF PRIMOGENITURE, FUAD STILL WOULD NOT QUALIFY BECAUSE HE IS NOT THE FIRST BORN. IT WAS HIS BROTHER, MAHAKUTTAH WHOSE SON HE CHOSE TO BE HIS RAJA MUDA IS MUEDZU-LAIL OR BUTCH KIRAM. FUAD WAS CONTENT BEING A DATU AND ONE OF THE KIRAM HEIRS UNTIL HE MET OMAR IN 2004.
DUX LEGAZPI WHO LATER ON CHANGED HIS NAME TO OMAR KIRAM IS A CON-ARTIST WHOSE ONE SOURCE OF LIVING WAS SELLING "FAKE" OR KNOCK-OFF DESIGNER BAGS. TO JUSTIFY FUAD AND OMAR'S GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS OF STEALING THE TITLE AWAY FROM BUTCH, THEY FABRICATED ACCUSATIONS AGAINST BUTCH OF BEING HARAM WHICH ARE FALSE. BUTCH HAD OBTAINED POLICE CLEARANCE AND SCHOOL CLEARANCE TO PROVE THAT FUAD AND OMAR'S ALLEGATIONS DID NOT HAPPEN. NOTHING WAS EVER PROVEN IN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM EITHER OR ANY CHARGES BROUGHT AGAINST BUTCH.
FUAD KIRAM IS THE ONE WHO IS "HARAM" AFTER HE ABANDONED HIS THIRD WIFE AND CHILD. HE IS POSING AS THE SULTAN AND DECEIVES PEOPLE UNDER THE MANIPULATION OF HIS MASTER PUPPETEER, OMAR "FAKE" KIRAM WHO DOES NOT HAVE A DROP OF KIRAM BLOOD OR A ROYAL BLOOD RUNNING THROUGH HIS VEINS.
Appointment of Sultan Jamalul to repesent the Sultanate as recognized by then Pres. Gloria Arroyo. Notice the date: August 2008, two years after Fuad proclaimed himself Sultan in 2006. Whatever documents they have on their website are doctored and are for spurious photo ops. Not a single proof that holds water!
Sultan Jamalul represented the Sultanate to World's Fair in China along with then Congressman Amin who is now a mayor of Sulu. Notice what the banner says.
Sultan Jamalul with Pres. GMA and the article in the paper is not what you call a "photo ops". The second picture is with Manila Mayor Lito Atienza.
Sultan Jamalul with then young Prof. Nur Misuari. Anne de Bretagne had a lengthy conversation with Nur Misuari and he did not recognize Fuad as Sultan but was consistent in calling him Datu Fuad. He also said, " Omar is a mystery to me. I don't know where he came from". But Fuad and Omar claimed in their website that MNLF and Nur Misuari support Fuad. We challenged them to show the letter of support or appointment and not just "photo ops" to which Nur said they asked for a meeting so he obliged. I also had a lengthy conversation with a senior MNLF official who also said that MNLF did not give support to Fuad much less recognized him as Sultan. He said that as far as the organization is concerned, they remain neutral though personally people know who they recognize as the true Sultan. He laughed and alluded to Jamalul.

REASONS WHY FUAD IS NEVER A LEGITIMATE SULTAN:
1. HE WAS NOT PROCLAIMED BY THE RUMA BECHARA
2. HE WAS NOT A RAJA MUDA
3. HE WAS NOT AN HEIR APPARENT IN THE LINE OF SUCCESSION
4. HE IS "HARAM"
A. BY ABANDONING HIS THIRD WIFE AND CHILD.
B. THROWING UNFOUNDED ALLEGATIONS AT HIS NEPHEW
C. CONNIVING WITH OMAR IN DECEIVING PEOPLE BY SELLING FAKE ROYALTY TITLES
D. POSING AS SULTAN.
5. FUAD DOES NOT QUALIFY AS SULTAN EVEN IF WE TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THE LAW OF PRIMOGENITURE THEY INSIST TO JUSTIFY FUAD'S FAKERY AGAINST THE OLD TRADITION OF THE SULTANATE BECAUSE HE IS NOT THE FIRST BORN. HE STOLE THE TITLE FROM HIS NEPHEW AND THAT MAKES HIM A FAKE SULTAN AFTER HIS BROTHER (MAHAKUTTAH) AND NOT AFTER HIS FATHER (ESMAIL I). BUT NO MATTER WHAT THEY SAY OR DO, FUAD AND OMAR ARE FAKE. THEY CANNOT CIRCUMVENT THE OLD MUSLIM TRADITION BY THE RUMA BECHARA AS THE LEGITIMATE BODY TO PROCLAIM A SULTAN.
The Ruma Bechara's signed petition approved by then Pres. Marcos to install Jamalul as the interim Sultan. Take note: The first signature was of that Princess Tarhata.
THE RUMA BECHARA OF SULTAN ESMAIL KIRAM I WAS THE SAME RUMA BECHARA THAT INSTALLED SULTAN JAMALUL AS INTERIM SULTAN THROUGH THE PETITION APPROVED BY PRES. MARCOS THEREFORE MAKING THE ERRONEOUS INSTALLATION OF MAHAKUTTAH AS SULTAN NULL AND VOID. UPON PUNJUNGAN'S RETURN FROM SABAH, HE WAS PROCLAIMED AND CROWNED BY THE SAME RUMA BECHARA AS SULTAN OF SULU ATTENDED BY MAHAKUTTAH WHO CONCEDED THE SULTANRY TO HIS UNCLE SINCE HE WAS THE LEGITIMATE RAJA MUDA.
BUT BOTTOM LINE IS FUAD AND OMAR HAVE NO SINGLE EVIDENCE TO PROVE THEIR CLAIMS. THEY GO ABOUT THEIR USUAL TALK, TALK WITH NO PROOF! QUACK, QUACK AND OUT OF WHACK!
