Qatar’s Cabinet has approved a draft law to replace Qatar Law No. 25/2004 on Combating Concealment of Illegal Commercial, Economic and Professional Practices by Non-Qataris. It applies to those using the name, license or commercial record of another when these activities are for the benefit of an actor’s own account, or in association with others. Anyone violating the law will be jailed for up to one year and/or fined between 20,000 and 500,000 Riyals. In every case, the court will order the confiscation of the property in question or the proceeds from it, taking into consideration the rights of bona fide third parties. The court may also order the revocation of any relevant license, or annul any relevant commercial registration and close premises or suspend activity for up to one year.
