Al Jazeera has served a formal Notice of Dispute on Egypt pursuant to the 1999 Qatar-Egypt Bilateral Investment Treaty, asserting that Egypt is in breach of its Treaty obligations and international law generally and claiming compensation in a sum in excess of US$150million.

If the dispute is not resolved within 6 months, the matter will be referred to international arbitration under the rules of the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes.

Al Jazeera is represented by Cameron Doley and Lawrence Northmore-Ball.
