Amyn Dahya (born June 28, 1957) is an author, businessman, and chemical engineer. He is a specialist in technology development in the area of environment protection and preservation and has repeatedly been investigated for fraud. He is also the author of seven books.[1]

Early career

Born and raised in East Africa, Amyn entered the world of business at the tender age of eleven, when he sold fresh eggs from the family farm to the tourist hotels along the coastline of Mombasa, on his way to school each day.[2][3]

Amyn later graduated with a First Class Honors degree from Aston University in Birmingham, United Kingdom. He is also a licensed Chemical Engineer in Ontario and New Brunswick, Canada.[4] He has over 35 years of experience in the development of minerals and environmental projects internationally: covering plant design, research, engineering, construction, commissioning, operations management, corporate and project financing, mergers and acquisitions.[5]

He is member of the Board of Directors of Environmental Technology and Management Association (ETMA) in Saudi Arabia.[6]


Amyn underwent a spiritual awakening after a life-threatening accident in Kashmir in 1987. He has since penned seven books and teaches meditation for self growth, healing and balance.[7][8]

His work includes:


Amyn has been the subject of repeated civil and criminal fraud allegations. Auromar, a Canadian company he controlled that had interests in South African gold mines, was under investigation by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Vancouver Stock Exchange on suspicion of "failing to disclose material information and making misleading statements." [13] Casmyn Corporation's directors and officers insurance was forced to pay $3.5 million as a result of Amyn's fraud while leading the company.[14][15]
