The High Court is set to become the stage for a battle between two wealthy Arab rulers. Sheikh Khalifa bin Hamed al-Thani and his father, Sheikh Hamed bin Khalifa al-Thani, are reported to be on course for a major courtroom confrontation in London over billions of dollars of state money which Sheik Hamed claims his father, who he deposed as ruler of Qatar in 1995, misappropriated.
