Bus/Financial - Finance (general) / Qatar Bankruptcy Law
Arabic term or phrase: حكم
I'm not sure I understand the sentence, and this may be due to the punctuation. Here is how it appears.

ويعتبر في حكم التوقف عن الدفع , استعمال التاجر في سبيل الوفاء بديونه , وسائل غير عادية او غير مشروعة تدل على سوء حالته المالية

My understanding is that في سبيل الوفاء بديونه is perhaps a bracketed section therefore –

ويعتبر في حكم التوقف عن الدفع استعمال التاجر- في سبيل الوفاء بديونه - وسائل غير عادية او غير مشروعة تدل على سوء حالته المالية

And so is this correct?
“So that he may pay off his debts, the payment suspension regulation allows the merchant to utilize extraordinary or unlawful means indicating his financial predicament.”
