Dubai kicks out US democracy NGO, too(Read article summary)
Though far more deftly than Egypt did.
Last week, the United Arab Emirates banished the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and the Konrad Adeneur Foundation, two international democracy promotion groups that recently, along with others, ran into trouble in Egypt.
Les Campbell, NDI's regional director, told CNN: "Our office was simply a regional hub which supported programs in places like Qatar and Kuwait ... While we are disappointed at this turn of events and disturbed by the arbitrary behavior in Dubai, we do not have programs in the UAE, so it has no serious ramifications for our work."
