Human Rights Watch under fire for allegedly accepting millions in Qatar funds

BY: Benjamin Weinthal, November 23, 2023:

Middle East Media Research Institute on Tuesday published a leaked Qatari government document claiming Qatar’s regime paid 3 million euros to HRW

The New York-based Human Rights Watch is facing another financing scandal involving donations, this time from Qatar—a Gulf country that was urged by one expert in a recent US congressional hearing to be classified as a state-sponsor of terrorism.

According to MEMRI’s translation, Abdullah Bin Khalaf Hattab Al Ka’bi, director of Qatar’s Office of the Prime Minister, wrote to Finance Minister Ali Sharif Al-Emadi in January 2018, stating: “His Excellency the Prime Minister has agreed to provide monetary support of 3 million euros to the organization Human Rights Watch, under the Humanitarian Aid section, and that it should be distributed with the knowledge of the Embassy of Qatar in London so that it can be aware of it and take the necessary [steps] with regard to it.”

The subject of the letter notes “providing additional monetary support to the organization Human Rights Watch.”

MEMRI wrote that the translation of a document in Arabic was leaked as part of Project Raven.

Executive director of the organization UN Watch, Hillel Neuer, told i24NEWS on Thursday: “These reports are very disturbing. They need to be fully investigated. There are strong reasons to fear that this may be true. We would need accountability. The money would have to be returned.”

Neuer added, “Qatar is a human rights abusing regime. They enslave migrant workers…caused thousands of them to die. They support the Taliban. They support Hamas. They support terrorism. They have an egregious human rights record.”

He continued “If it’s true, this would be shameful but not inconsistent with their [HRW] actions in the past. We have seen, because of their anti-Western ideology and anti-Israel ideology, that they will often cozy up to Islamist regimes, whether it’s Hamas or Hezbollah. There is a corrupt and twisted culture at Human Rights Watch and that needs to be fixed.”

Marc Eichinger, a former French intelligence agent who has written extensively about Qatar’s alleged financing of Islamist terrorist movements, told i24NEWS, “Many NGOs are being funded by Qatar and there should be international rules concerning these activities. They should be regulated like any listed companies raising fund on the stock markets. They should provide full transparency over their funding and their management.”

Eichinger said “HRW employee Natalie Lundgren worked in the past for the Qatar Foundation and was program manager of World Innovation Summit for Education. These entities are closely linked and under the control of Sheikha Moza. Human Rights Watch can always deny any link with Qatar. The fact is that Mrs Lundgren is in charge of fundraising in Paris and comes from WISE. ”

Natalie Lundgren started her work for HRW as the Development and Outreach Manager in 2018. Her previous job was for the Qatari-funded WISE initiative. i24NEWS sent a press query to Lundgren asking if she played a role in securing the alleged Qatari donation for HRW.

Neuer noted that Danielle Haas, an Israeli who worked for HRW for over 13 years, just quit HRW due to the institutional bias against the Jewish state.

Qatar’s alleged enabling of Qatar’s terrorism was the focus of a congressional hearing in late October. Rich Goldberg, a member of then-President Trump’s National Security Council, said at the hearing that “Replacing a Major non-NATO ally designation with a State Sponsor of Terrorism designation would have a destabilizing effect on Qatar overnight — rippling through its global investment portfolio, energy sector, national air carrier, and international prestige.”
