Dear Sirs,

No.

Faithfully yours,

Very good. I'm involved in defending a claim at the moment and would dearly love to respond in that vein.

Anyone else seen that Qatar is preventing owners of companies, contractors and consulting engineers from leaving the Country.

Just a little over the top?

Leaving Qatar is like leaving prison (I've done both, twice - don't ask...)The main problem is that any problems are seen to be the fault of foriegners. After all the indolent, incompetent Qatari's, who are perfect, after all, could not be possibly to blame, now, could they?
