Syrian refugees have filed a claim for damages against Qatar's Doha bank and two Qatar residents for its alleged support for Syrian terrorist organizations, according to legal sources.
The claim was filed in the Queen’s Bench Division of the High Court in London by 330 Syrian refugees residing in the UK, the Netherlands, Sweden, Germany and other countries. The case was filed against Doha bank and Moutaz and Ramez al-Khayyat, according to a statement from Richard Slade of the "Richard Slade" & Co Law firm in London, seen by Al Arabiya.
The claimants say they suffered loss and damage in Syria at the hands of Jabhat al-Nusra, including loss of business and property and serious personal and psychiatric injuries. Some were victims of torture, the lawsuit says.
They allege that Doha Bank and Moutaz and Ramez Al Khayyat were instrumental in funding Jabhat al-Nusra.
The claim is similar to the claim filed in July 2019 on behalf of eight Syrian refugees residing in the netherlands.
