ECOSOC status – the end …

Filed under: Editor's comments — heidi @ 13:19

(updated on November 10, 2012): This blog tells (as exemple) the story of a small NGO in Delhi wanting access ECOSOC status.

Here, ECOSOC, the UN body giving NGOs a special status to work with them, is not able to say frankly NO ACCESS because of hidden politics – here between the state of India with it’s own NGOs. The play is, India’s first adversary – here the representative of Pakistan – stipulates NO for this Indian NGO, pretexting a not kind attitude for Pakistan … India does the same for a Pakistan NGO wanting ECOSOC status … but when the comedy in UN’s meeting-room is over, the two representatives of India and Pakistan leave the room arm in arm, merrily laughing and chatting …

… since end of 2010, UN/ECOSOC has unilaterally stopped any correspondence with Delhi (AEHRF’s headquarter) … giving no reasons.

We know that many other NGOs are living the same stupid run: governments in many countries try to limit the number of their NGOs. Refusing them ECOSOC status (with the help of a so called adversary country) limits heavily their income, means reduces some kind of work needing more money than their members can personally afford.

We the Geneva-Office are publishing this story for making aware what this UN-body really is … meanwhile for me a normal play by corrupt elites.

and AEHRF’s answer Aug 4, 2009: ans_04-August-2009_6969_8349

My clarification:

  • I, as President of the Geneva Office of AEHRF certify, that our NGO is totally separated from the Delhi Office, this by law, and also by finance.
  • We are an independent NGO, our work consists in editing all these blogs. We are linked with Delhi by heart, by the goal, and with our spirit. Thus we share the name by friendship, adding – for distinction – Geneva-Office to our name. But Delhi decides themselves their work, and we do same.
  • We, the Geneva Office of AEHRF DO NOT APPLY for ECOSOC. We have no exchange with this committee and will never apply. Delhi is applying since many years and we, the Geneva Office, are only showing the world this eternal story, knowing that there exist worldwide many others like this one.
  • Heidi, Geneva-Office of AEHRF, which is the only owner of all these blogs.
