[casi] Annan sued for Oil-for-food losses

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.
