Like Human Rights Watch’s latest controversial report on Morocco, Amnesty International’s report on the war in Ukraine is the target of strong international criticism, casting doubt on the credibility of the two NGOs, accused of pernicious actions that resemble attempts at destabilization.
Amnesty International’s latest report accusing Ukrainian forces of endangering the lives of civilians has in fact prompted the resignation of the head of the NGO, Oksana Pokaltchouk, and the indignation of President Volodymyr Zelensky, who has accused the NGO to “attempt to amnesty the terrorist state” by putting “the victim and the aggressor in a certain way on an equal footing”.
Morocco had also denounced the tendentious allegations contained in the latest HRW report and which are based on untruths distilled by the local NGO, AMDH. For the Moroccan government, these slanders will not deter Morocco from continuing to build the rule of law and institutions and defend rights and freedoms, according to its spokesperson, Mustapha Baitas.
“By acting in this way, this organization (HRW) ignores the principles of professionalism, objectivity and impartiality, thus clearly displaying itself as an instrument in the hostile and systematic campaign” against Morocco, was for its part indignant the Interministerial Delegation for Human Rights (DIDH).
In fact, as with Amnesty International, which is today repudiated by its own officials, HRW’s reports have also been denounced by one of its founders. Shortly before his death in 2019, Robert L. Bernstein called HRW “morally bankrupt”.
He had already strongly criticized in 2009, in the New York Times, the leaders of the NGO for having misguided the initial mission of HRW which he led for 20 years in the service of the defense of human rights in the worldw and wich now finds itself in the ranks of organizations dedicated to slander and self-serving reporting.
