    Hi Michael,
    Have you been following the Dana Gas Sukuk proceedings in London and Sharjah? I was in court this morning when the judgment was handed down and am doing a story on it today. I am trying to find some material whether the case is significant for the Islamic finance world and thought you might be able to help. Also please let me know if you have any expert contacts I should get in touch with. Jack

      I posted a comment on dana gas on my website IslamicFinance.de. You may wish to call Templeton Sukuk fund manager Mr Kronfol [email protected]

      The abuse of the Sharia argument to avoid default and postponing repayment is bad for tbe Sukuk market obviously. A Sukuk consists of various contracts rather than a conventional bond, which is based on a simple loan. Consequently it can be abused.

        Ok great. Would you be interested in providing a quick expert comment for the article? It would be great if you could elaborate a bit on the impact the case has had (or might have had) on the Sukuk market, and maybe what we can expect to happen next.

    Hi Michael. Hope you’re well. Your profile says you’re an expert on the Middle East, so I was wondering whether than expertise extends to Lebanese politics/society and current affairs? Thanks.

      Nice article on Lebanon. What might turn out to be important is the nuance of saying “I am free” or “I am free in Saudi-Arabia”, which does not exclude the possility of not being free to leave.

        It will be very interesting to see what happens when/whether Hariri goes to France.
