Firm to sue Annan over lost trade April 18. A Bahraini trading and marketing company is planning to sue UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan for the loss of millions of dollars worth of business in Iraq. Samih Rajab, the owner of Al Jazeera trading and marketing company, said he was acting jointly with a number of GCC firms which held Mr Annan personally responsible for losses linked to the UN "Oil for Food" programme. He told our sister paper Akhbar Al Khaleej that his company had signed agreements with the UN programme to deliver food and medicine to UN representatives at points of entry to Iraq. But he claimed he was now facing huge losses following the start of the war on Iraq and the withdrawal of UN officials and weapons inspectors. Mr Rajab advised companies not to take part in Iraq reconstruction programmes without proper guarantees. http://tinyurl.com/9t13 pg _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
