(Gateway Pundit) – The brother of the leader of Qatar has reckless disrespect for the United States and its laws, according to a new lawsuit, which reveals that the Arab sheikh allegedly ordered his staff to murder at least two Americans and hold another captive.
Two of the former employees of Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad al Thani, (pictured above) the brother of the emir of Qatar, have filed lawsuits in federal court against their former boss, claiming he regularly abuses them and attempted to coax them into committing serious felonies. Matthew Pittard, a security contractor, alleged that Khalid’s orders included the murder of his perceived enemies.
A bombshell piece by Luke Rosiak in the Daily Caller discusses the eye-popping allegations in the federal lawsuit.
The lawsuit claims:
“During his employment, Pittard was solicited by Defendant Khalid for the murder of two individuals. In approximately late September of 2017 and November of 2017, in Los Angeles, California, Defendant Khalid asked Pittard to murder a male and a female who Defendant Khalid viewed as threats to his social reputation and personal security. Pittard refused to execute these unlawful requests.”
The suit continues:
“From approximately July 7-10, 2018, Defendant Khalid and his private Qatari security staff held an American citizen against the American citizen’s will on at least two occasions in one of Defendant Khalid’s personal residences.
At Defendant Khalid’s request, the American citizen was arrested and jailed at the Onaiza Police Station in Doha, Qatar. Pittard and the United States Embassy came to the aide of the American citizen, and helped the American citizen reach a point of safety, and eventually safely depart from the country.”
Sheikh Khalid has abused his diplomatic privileges in the past.
In 2015, he fled the U.S. for Doha after he was caught drag racing a Ferrari through the streets of Beverly Hills, California. Before police could charge the sheikh, he left the country and took his fleet of luxury cars with him. It’s unclear how Khalid has been able to avoid charges from that incident, considering the fact that he was back in the United States shortly thereafter.
Khalid’s complete disregard for civil society and American laws should not come as a surprise to Qatar watchers. The jihadist-funding regime that rules Qatar operates as a chattel slave state, where migrant workers are subject to persecution, torture, and restrictions on their ability to leave the country. Instead of lifting up the migrant working class, the ruling Al-Thani family has decided to prop up international terrorist organizations such as Hamas, the Taliban, Al Qaeda, and the Muslim Brotherhood.
The sheikh has attempted to keep a low profile while the plaintiffs’ attorneys are moving to serve him with the lawsuit. The Tampa Bay Times reports that while “al Thani is not a U.S. citizen, his businesses operate in the U.S. and affect American citizens,” citing his lawyers. The report adds, “That means his actions are covered under Florida and California state labor regulations even if the allegations took place abroad.”
