Bahrain prepares legal file against Qatar

Mon, Sep. 25, 2017
CAIRO – 25 September 2017: In an interview with The National on Sunday, Bahraini Foreign Affairs Minister Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa stated that the Bahraini government is cooperating with parliament members to prepare a legal file against Qatar.

Sheikh Khalid, however, refused to unveil the content of that file or “how it will be used,” confirming the measure announced by Bahraini parliament members a few weeks ago. Their plan is to sue Qatar in the International Criminal Court (ICC).

The minister explained, “Qatar for the last couple of decades has had relations with subversive groups, especially with those living in London. They paid their salaries, and when we opened up and allowed many people to come back after His Majesty’s (King Hamad bin Issa Al Khalifa) reforms, they kept that relationship with them. Doha was in cahoots with many of them, and it was very clear in 2011. We see it all — financing, telling them what to do, and we have all the evidence."

The quartet – Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain – cut diplomatic ties with Qatar on June 5 for supporting terror and terrorist groups.
