CAIRO – 16 October 2017: Qatari authorities stormed on Thursday Sheikh Sultan bin Suhaim Al Thani’s palace in Doha, a step taken after the very same authorities froze the bank accounts of the young Sheikh.
The authorities confiscated more than 137 personal suitcases and several files belong to the late Qatari Foreign Minister Suhaim Al Thani – Sheikh Sultan’s father-, which document the history of the tiny Emirate from the Sixties until Suhaim’s death in 1985.
Qatari authorities also arrested all the palace’s domestic servants, including the Sudanese housekeeper, seizing during the raid all the personal photos of Suhaim’s widow Mona Al-Dousari.
Sheikh Sultan bin Suhaim Al Thani slammed Tamim bin Hamad’s regime in a speech he gave last September in the French capital of Paris, over the current diplomatic crisis between Qatar and four Arab states including Egypt, Saudi Arabia, United Arab of Emirates and Bahrain.
Earlier this week, the Qatari authorities froze the bank accounts of Sheikh Abdullah bin Ali Al Thani after his efforts to contain the crisis between the tiny emirate and four Arab States.
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.
