CAIRO – 14 October 2017: Sheikh Abdullah bin Ali Al Thani revealed on Saturday that the Qatari regime of Hamad froze all his accounts in Qatari banks.
“It is an honor the the Qatari regime froze my bank accounts in Qatar, and I would like thank them for this rewar. I dedicate this to my country,” Al Thani tweetted.
He added in another post “I hope that Qatar can expell those exploiting the country for money and other benefits, and to return to the embrace of our sister countries that we cherish, because only they can help us. May God save Qatar and its people.”
This came after the threatening statements by Mohammed Al-Mosfer, a professor at Qatar University, during an interview with the official Qatari Television on Monday.
Earlier, there was an escalation from the Qatari ruling family against Tamim. A prominent member of Qatar’s ruling family and the former Qatari foreign minister, Sheikh Sultan bin Suhaim, repeated calls for a national meeting of the ruling family’s elders to put an end to the current rift. He stated that “[we] can no longer remain quiescent towards it.”
Amid unstable circumstances in Qatar following the recent Qatari crisis, there are anticipations on the possible candidates to rule Qatar after Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani.
Sheikh Abdullah Al-Thani, son of the late Emir of Qatar, Ali bin Abdullah Al-Thani, is the forerunner candidate to succeed Tamim, according to Egypt Today’s previous interviews of political professors.
Since June 5, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates have cut their relation with Qatar and announced a complete boycott of the emirate for its support and sponsorship of terrorism.
Following the Arab boycott of Doha, a list of 13 demands was handed to Doha’s government by the boycotting quartet for reconciliation, which includes the closing of Al Jazeera broadcasting and the suspension of its relationship with the extremist government of Iran.
Since then, Qatar has resisted conciliation attempts and has not shown any efforts in disassociating itself from the terrorist groups that the Gulf and its allies accuse Doha of harboring and sponsoring.
