The concierge at the hotel where Kim Kardashian-West was robbed at gunpoint has said he warned about security issues six years ago.

The 39-year-old father-of-one, known only as Abdulrahman, told MailOnline that security at the prestigious Hôtel de Pourtalès was so lax that ‘someone might die’.

‘There was no real security at all,’ he said. ‘It’s a choice. The hotel doesn’t mind about security.

‘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.’

Even the security code on the front door hadn’t been changed for years, he added, meaning that ‘everyone knew it’. Security tests carried out by Mail journalists found that it had still not been changed two weeks after the robbery.

Abdulrahman was the only security guard on duty on October 3, the night that Kardashian-West was bound, gagged and robbed.

The robbers overpowered him, handcuffed him and marched him to Kim’s door at gunpoint.

An email sent to bosses at his security company in 2010, seen by MailOnline, warned them of the lax security at the hotel.

‘I told the hotel years ago, you need better security and they didn’t mind,’ he said.

‘If you look at that big door, it wasn’t locked, it was open.

‘We talked about it and nobody cared. The code of the door was never changed and everybody knew it.

‘There is a camera in the main wall of the hotel, behind the big red doors, but it didn’t work for years.’

After returning to her hotel room, Kim was confronted by two men dressed as police officers, who proceeded to keep her captive in the room. The incident is believed to have happened at some time between 3 and 4am, Central European Time (CET).

Police sources claim the hotel deliberately chose not to install CCTV to avoid their wealthy and powerful clients being filmed entering with, for example, prostitutes.

Abdulrahman is now planning to take legal action.

‘One day, someone might be killed,’ he said. ‘That is more important than a robbery of rocks and metal.’
