The provincial lawyer who is helping plot an emirate coup
Peter Cathcart works for ousted prince of Ras al-Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates to co-ordinate a plot to return him to power
A bloodless coup to take control of an Arab Gulf state is being plotted by an unlikely alliance that includes a powerful firm of US lobbyists and a provincial English high-street solicitor Peter Cathcart, a 59-year-old lawyer from Farnham, has been hired by the ousted crown prince of Ras al-Khaimah (RAK) in the United Arab Emirates to co-ordinate the plot aimed at returning him to power after seven years in exile.

And here is an interesting reply in the Facebook of the ex Crown Prince of RAK from " U.S. Communications Team for His Highness Sheikh Khalid bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler, Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates".Its too long so read it urselves. [Facebook]
The army confronting the supporters of Sheikh Khalid Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, the former Crown Prince of Ras Al Khaimah, to prevents breaking into his father's palace after his dismissal and the installation of his brother Saud in his place in the summer of 2003. [BBC]
He has several videos in his facebook and statements about his view about the stuff happening in RAK. It is some how interesting. I was expecting at least statements of how he support his people and how they support him, not how Iran is a threat to the region and how Ras Al Khaimah is helping in that.
