headlines our colleagues from

Liberation

in their front page dated Thursday, September 29, 2022. The daily published a large investigation into the Qatari methods in the service of Nasser al-Khelaïfi involving death threats, confidential documents and cases of torture.

In its three-page investigation,

explains that a Franco-Algerian entrepreneur "Tayeb B."

41 years old, was arrested in Doha at the beginning of 2020. Imprisoned in Qatar for nine months, the man then had several confidential documents on the private and professional life of the president of PSG as well as his Qatari entourage, including additional evidence of the alleged corruption of Qatar for the awarding of the next World Cup (November 20 - December 18).

According to

“a source close to these investigations qualified as ultra-sensitive”

contacted by

Liberation

, the victim Tayeb B. would have sought to

“place himself to monetize the documents”

in order to obtain

“a consideration or money”.

Qatar nevertheless wanted to ensure that these confidential documents could never come out and thus tarnish the reputation and status of Nasser al-Khelaïfi, close to the Emir Tamim ben Hamad Al Thani.
