Kluivert and Davids have been using Amnesty International for a show.

'It would be good if they are aware of this. This can be seen as a legitimacy of a regime that is terribly wrong,' a spokeswoman responds.
'Sports and politics are often said to be divorced worlds, but you do not see this kind of thing,' said the spokesman. 'You can also use fame and prestige as a soccer player.'

The former internationalists of Orange are in the country to help organize a benefit contest with stopped footballers from their old club FC Barcelona.
