Qatar Group to Pursue Damages Tied to Saudi-Led Blockade - Bloomberg

Qatar Group to Pursue Damages Tied to Saudi-Led Blockade - Bloomberg:

 "A Qatari human-rights group plans to take legal action over what it says are damages to citizens and the economy from the Saudi-led blockade of the gas-rich Gulf state.

Ali bin Smaikh Al Marri, chairman of Qatar’s National Human Rights Committee, told reporters in Doha that the group is shopping for an international law firm to take the case, and is soliciting a meeting with the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.

In a surprise move, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic ties and trade links with Qatar, the world’s largest exporter of liquefied natural gas, on June 5. Qatar’s neighbors accuse it of destabilizing the region by supporting proxies of Shiite Muslim Iran and the Sunni militants of al-Qaeda and Islamic State, charges the sheikdom has denied.
