LONDON: A Qatari sheikh is being sued by a British family for more than £200,000 ($246,754) after he killed their pensioner relative in 2019.
Sheikh Hassan Nasser Al-Thani knocked down Charles Roberts, 66, while speeding through London in his Rolls-Royce.
The pensioner died at the scene and the Qatari sheikh was convicted and given an eight-month prison sentence, which was suspended for two years.
Following a court ruling and a guilty plea to causing death by dangerous driving, Al-Thani was also banned from driving in the UK for three years.
