DE-Tenants.org is researching the business transactions and holdings of the Qatar Investment Authority and Qatari elites — particularly the country’s ruling Al-Thani family. Previously (Part 1 & Part 2), we detailed how investments made by a Qatari royal Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al-Thani into Icelandic bank Kaupthing were actually financed by proceeds of a loan made by Kaupthing to Al-Thani. The loan and reinvestment prompted an investigation by Icelandic authorities into Kaupthing bankers (but not Al-Thani). Bankers were ultimately indicted. Today’s post details the convictions.
