    The two ministers and the chief of staff were on Tuesday replaced following the charge by Qatar's general prosecutor that the three had illegally invested money in Doha's stock market, Aljazeera reported quoting local newspapers. 

     

    State Minister for Cabinet Affairs Muhammad bin Issa al-Muhannadi was relieved of his post. This position will now be the additional responsibility of Sultan bin Hassan al-Dhabit al-Dawsari, minister of municipal affairs and agriculture.

     

    Faisal bin Abd Allah Al-Mahmud was sworn in as minister of endowments and Islamic affairs on Tuesday morning, replacing Muhammad Abd al-Latif al-Mana.

     

    Head of Amiri Diwan office (the Amir's chief of staff) Abd Allah bin Muhammad Saud al-Thani was replaced by the Amir's private secretary Abd al-Rahman bin Saud al-Thani.
