HH Sheikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi

 
....and here he is, HH Sheikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi (centre) who's the current ruler of the Emirate of Fujairah. According to Wikipedia he took over after the death of his father Mohammed bin Hamad Al Sharqi in 1974. The Sharqi family has a warm relationship with the Abu Dhabi ruling Nahyan family, allowing the former access to federal funds and ministerial posts, exceeding allocations of similar small emirates. Educated in Britain, Hamad is a progressive ruler, and his reformist leanings have held him in good stead with businessmen and expatriates alike - Sounds like a top guy!

A very noble photo of the Sheikh! I wonder if he is a kind, friendly type?
