Qatar Airways seeks redress for trade blockade

[ July 22, 2020   //   ]

Qatar Airways Group has launched international investment arbitrations against the UAE, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Egypt to seek redress for the air, sea and land blockade imposed on its home country since June 2017. The airline is seeking a total of at least US$5 billion from the blockading states as compensation. The blockade was imposed over Qatar’s alleged support for terrorist groups.
