More on AIJ

  • IAJ is described by the Voltaire Network' as a "coalition of associations for the defense of human rights organized and financed by George Soros during the attack on Kosovo and then reactivated to justify the invasion of Iraq."
"To hide its origin," the Network says, "the International Alliance for Justice was registered as a French law organization: fue registrada como una asociación de derecho francés: Alliance Internationale pour la Justice. It echoed and gave credit to the exaggerations of the Iraqi National Congress of Ahmed Chalabi in reference to the crimes of Saddam Hussein." [4]

Note: Linkage between AIJ and George Soros has not been found.

Alliance Internationale for Justice began with informational and education programs on human rights, refugees and minorities."
