But the so-called Dapper Don used a fake name to post 200 Google reviews between 2019 and last year for restaurants and hotels in his Dubai base as well as South Africa, Hong Kong, Zimbabwe, Turkey, Belgium, the Netherlands, Hungary, Egypt, Spain and Portugal.

Kinahan, 67, also rated government offices, a Covid test centre and a Waitrose store, a joint probe by The Sunday Times and the Dutch news research group Bellingcat found.

Kinahan, said to be worth £600million, is accused of running a drug smuggling and money laundering cartel with his sons Christopher and Daniel, a boxing promoter who is close to Tyson Fury.

The family has been involved in a feud with the rival Hutch Dublin crime gang which is said to have led to 18 murders.

Kinahan, who speaks Russian and Spanish, left an electronic footprint with his reviews.

In 2022, US authorities put up a £4million reward for his arrest.

Dubai has no extradition treaty with the US, Ireland or UK.

Retired Met cop Mick Neville said: “Christy Kinahan is putting up two fingers to all the law enforcement agencies who are trying to hunt him down.

“He seems to be taunting detectives.”
