Berne, Switzerland — Qatar’s solar energy business has been hit by a scandal that has led to accusations of bribery and money laundering.
The World Bank has accused Qatar’s Ministry of Energy and Water of diverting $100m from the country’s national grid to the company in 2013, and it has said it is investigating.
The government has denied the accusations.
The country has been rocked by a series of scandals, including a bribery case against former president Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani and accusations that it colluded with Qatar’s energy company, which has been sanctioned by the United States.
Qatari authorities have denied any wrongdoing.
Qatar’s state-owned energy company announced the suspension of operations in June, and the country was plunged into a power crisis in April.
A new investigation is looking into the allegations that Qatari energy companies received payments in return for awarding contracts.
The ministry said in a statement Monday that it had suspended the operations of QSI and would look into its status.
QSI has been accused of receiving bribes from the government of the UAE, which is a member of the United Arab Emirates.
Qatar has also been accused by the UAE of helping the UAE-based group, Al Nusra Front, to obtain weapons and fighters.
Al Nishi Front is also believed to be connected to the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad, who is supported by Qatar.
The UAE, a close ally of the U.S., has been cracking down on the group.
The company, QSI Energy, has been a major supplier of power to Qatar’s power grid, and its owners have been the target of an investigation into their links to the UAE.
The move comes as Qatar continues to battle corruption and corruption-related crime, as the country continues to face economic and diplomatic pressure.
The United Arab Emirate has been investigating QSI since 2014.
In April, a Qatari court ordered QSI to pay $1.7bn in fines, but the case was later withdrawn.
QIA has not been able to pay its bills.
The QSI company was established in 2014.
The group’s owners are believed to have been involved in the procurement of equipment and the development of a grid-connected network that was used to deliver power to the country.
The Qataris have accused Qatar of diverging $100bn from the grid to QSI, which was then used to purchase equipment and fighter jets, among other items.
Qaisas ministry said it had received a letter from the World Bank that accused QSI of violating a rule of law law, in violation of Qatar’s obligations under the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
The letter, which did not name Qatar or its energy company specifically, said that the company’s activities had diverged from its commitments under the Convention, which states that governments must not use the power of the public power to promote its private interests.
The state-run energy company said it would investigate and take action against any person or entity who violates the Convention.
