Saudi-funded NGO under scrutiny in Austria
The Austrian government has said it will be observing the activities of a Saudi-funded centre in Vienna, which is supposed to foster inter-religious dialogue, before extending its contract next year.
Chancellor Werner Faymann (SPÖ) said the issue was to find if the King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue (KAICIID) was really meeting its objectives of promoting inter-religious dialogue.
KAICIID is an NGO which is exempt from paying taxes in Austria. Its goals are also to promote human rights, justice and peace.
