In earlier edition, iunwatch has already explained how some NGOs that became a vehicle for some governments to attack other countries.
These NGOs are even creating a bad influence on the work of senior International human rights NGOs. Human Rights organizations are meant to adhere to their noble goal, which is to “preserve, protect, develop and promote” human rights.
However, recent reports show that some of the organizations with UN consultative status have violated the status regulations. Maat foundation is one of those organizations that were found guilty of violating ECOSOC regulations.
How is Maat foundation using its consultative status for all the wrong reasons?
Maat foundation has been operating under the influence of the Emirates government to help them achieve their personal gains. In return to that, the Emirates government is heavily funding this Organization for a number of reasons.
Even the organization’s founder is starting to be known as a corrupt person who embezzles huge amounts of money and lives on bribes. Maat foundation is also assisting the Emirates government in committing different crimes.
Maat foundation is helping the UAE government to launder huge sums of money. Moreover, the UAE government is using the Maat foundation to attack different regimes. The entire goal of the UAE government is to destabilize its opponents in human rights.
The finest example is how UAE uses them to create propaganda about the human rights violation in Qatar. Under the leadership of Ayman Akil, the Organization has published false publications against the Qatari government.
In a nutshell, the Maat foundation is doing everything to secure the interest of the UAE government and not highlighting the troubles that people are facing in the UAE’s human rights field.
Maat foundation creating propaganda on different Platform
The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) allowed contact with the Emirati NGO, the Arab Federation for Human rights (AFHR), which was established in 2015 to respond to the attack on Qatar as a part of the ongoing Gulf crises.
The Egyptian Organization for human rights books three sides of seminars for the Ara Union for human rights, where they were dedicated to attacking countries such as France, Britain, Turkey, Qatar, and the united states rather than discussing human rights in the Middle East.
The events were under the title “Human rights in Yemen, human rights in Egypt, and the third event on human rights in Qatar.
Maat for peace, development, and human rights, headed by Mr. Ayman Aqil, spread lies and propaganda in the human rights council to implement the UAE agenda instead of discussing the human rights situation.
The people who knew what was happening in the UN human rights council confirmed that Maat was saying he had people close to the emirates do so.
The same applies to the International Alliance for Human rights and development (EAHRD), which has used its stands to spread fake news about the Middle East in the services of some countries.
It has become a very serious concern as many organizations are using their consultative status to gain their funding countries. Maat foundation has been operating for a long time to win UAE against its opponents. UAE is using this Organization spread a bad image of their opponents. The authorities must take action to seize their status.
