Candy brothers hit out at Qatar

The Candy brothers – the pair who build luxury apartments for the super-rich     – have filed a writ accusing the ruling family in Qatar of breaking a £119m contract. Nick and Christian Candy claim the family owes them £81m because of a joint contract to develop the Chelsea Barracks site. They claim the Qataris scrapped the contract with the Candys’ company illegally, after Westminster City Council withdrew planning permission for the Chelsea site.
