Authorities in Kosovo have suspended the activities of the Qatar Charity organization in the country, in a move that observers see as further evidence of Doha's use of a charity “front” to cover illegal activities and its financing of terrorism.

Kosovo’s NGO management authority took the decision to suspend the activities of the organization because of an alleged “conflict of interest between the charity’s activities and the security interests of the Republic of Kosovo.”

Qatar claims that its charitable foundation is committed to the laws of the countries it operates in, particularly those experiencing poverty or armed conflicts, but has long been accused of using such institutions to finance terrorism.
