Documentary reveals Qatar’s subversive role


DUBAI: A documentary aired on UAE TV exposed the subversive role of Doha as a training hub to undermine the UAE’s security and stability.

The 30-minute episode of the documentary, Qatar’s terrorism support files, featured the confessions of Isa Khalifa Al Suwaidi, a former member of the Muslim Brotherhood, who was a senior member of the organisation’s “Majlis Shura Al Jama’a,” or the advisory board.

Al Suwaidi spoke in detail about Doha’s support for questionable organisations with direct and indirect links to international groups that are active in training youths, including Emiratis, to destabilise security in their respective countries.

The documentary also showed a video of a fugitive Emirati member of the secret organisation while addressing a training course to incite the trainees to act against the UAE and its symbols, and who called for “changing the regime in the UAE, or toppling it.”

Al Suwaidi affirmed that it was no coincidence that the group’s members who fled the UAE are in Doha.

“Their escape was made under an emergency plan. Some of the fugitives settled there while others were provided safe passage to move to other countries, despite the expiry of their passports,” he added.

Al Suwaidi, who is serving a 10-year jail sentence in connection with the secret organisation case, worked in the education sector in Qatar since 2009.

He revealed that his own residence in Qatar was used as a venue for a meeting between the Qatari terrorist group and the Emirati secret terrorist group, under the alleged umbrella of “Gulf co-ordination.”
