Qatar Wants Compensation for Arab Embargo

Qatar plans to help citizens and companies claim compensation for their losses from what the country calls a “blockade” by its neighbors.
The small Persian Gulf nation on Sunday announced the formation of a special committee with which individuals and firms can file claims for damages. The committee will help legally pursue the claims, according to Qatar’s Justice Ministry, CNN reported.
“We are confident that Qatari lawyers can defend Qatar and its symbols through proper legal procedures,” the ministry said on Twitter, adding that it will take “appropriate legal measures to go after the abusers of Qatar.”
Thousands of individuals and several businesses have taken major hits since Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic ties and shut off all transport links with Qatar. The quartet accuses Qatar of destabilizing the Middle East by funding terrorism in the region, a claim the Qatari government has denied. The countries have sought to extract concessions from Qatar in return for restoration of diplomatic and economic ties. The demands include closing the state-funded Aljazeera media network, reducing diplomatic ties with Iran and halting the construction of a Turkish military base in Qatar.
