Potential defendants in rainfall case banned from leaving Qatar

Company owners, contractors and consulting engineers who may be liable for the damage wrought by this week’s rains are not allowed to leave the country, Qatar’s attorney general has said.

In a statement carried on QNA late last night, Attorney General Dr. Ali bin Fetais Al Marri said the travel ban would be in place as the state investigates what happened during Wednesday’s rainfall and decides who to charge for the ensuing chaos, which included flooded roads and damaged buildings.
