The Prince Charles’ office has disputed that Prince Charles acted improperly in accepting money bags filled with cash from a Qatari lawmaker as gifts for a good cause.
According to The Sunday Times, Sheik Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani, the former state leader of Qatar, gave the ruler a sum of 3 million euros ($3.2 million). According to the report, Charles received the money at two separate private meetings between 2011 and 2015, once in a bag and the other in shopping bags from the Fortnum and Mason department store chain in London.
The paper said the cash was stored into the records of the Prince of Wales’ Charitable Fund. It didn’t assert that anything unlawful was finished.
Charles’ office, Clarence House, said in a proclamation that the gifts “were passed promptly to one of the sovereign’s causes who completed the proper administration and have guaranteed us that every one of the right cycles were followed.”
The ruler’s beneficent asset told the paper it had checked “that the giver was a genuine and confirmed counterparty and our reviewers approved the gift after a particular enquiry during the review. There was no disappointment of administration.”
Qatar’s administration interchanges office didn’t promptly answer a solicitation for input.
As Qatar’s state leader somewhere in the range of 2007 and 2013, Hamad managed the oil-rich state’s sovereign abundance reserve, which has significant property ventures all over the planet, including London’s Shard high rise, Heathrow Airport and Harrods retail chain.
London police are at present examining a different claim that individuals related with one more of the sovereign’s causes, the Prince’s Foundation, gave to help a Saudi very rich person secure distinctions and citizenship as a trade off for gifts. Clarence House has said Charles had no information on any such proposition.
