The progressive non-governmental organisation Amnesty International has consistently condemned terrorist organisations for committing human rights violations.
However, a series of news articles published in the British newspaper The Times revealed that one of the organisation's senior officials has undeclared public connections with alleged key players in a secretive terrorist network.
Yasmin Hussein, Amnesty International's current Director of Faith and Human Rights and formerly Director of International Advocacy, reportedly married a man who allegedly has links to the transnational Sunni Islamist organisation, Muslim Brotherhood, and possibly to the Palestinian Islamic organisation, Hamas.
Hussein's husband, Wael Mussabeh, is believed to be an official in the Human Relief Foundation (HRF), which is affiliated with the Union of Good, an organisation allegedly funding the Hamas.
The couple's ties with the terrorist organisations were revealed in a number of documents released by the courts following a criminal trial, where connections between British supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamists from Arab countries were established.
The name of Mussabeh was mentioned in court documents submitted during a criminal trial in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as one of the alleged conspirators of the Muslim Brotherhood, who were reportedly plotting the overthrow of the emirates to install a caliphate.
Amnesty International said it is not aware of the connection of Hussein's husband to these cases, with its officials claiming that they did not delve into the director's married life.
