CAIRO – 20 September 2017: The Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, met on Tuesday with Kenneth Roth, the executive director of Human Rights Watch (HRW), during his participation in the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) to continue his hostile policies towards Egypt and the Arab region.
The users of social networking sites voiced their anger at Qatar's support to human rights organizations that have become a platform for attacking Egypt and issuing malicious reports.

"Human Rights Watch has been reporting on Arab countries except Qatar, while the organisation tweeted on Al Jazeera account, although Egypt has problems with Qatar and Qatar’s funding of Al Jazeera," said political activist Mustafa Rashad on Twitter.
Activist Mohammed Eldiasty said that supporting the Qatari regime to the suspected organization was tantamount to conspiring against Egypt. "The terrorist Tamim handed Kenneth Roth … a large sum of money for his abusive reports on Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Libya.”
The HRW claimed in a report that there had been torture and the imprisonment of about 60,000 people over the past period.
While The Egyptian House of Representatives approved in a general session a bill drafted by the government, regulating and establishing a semi-government-run Egyptian Council for Human Rights (NCHR).
