Permission denied problem

Is there a way to make cygwin executables to have the same permission
rights as cmd.exe or other windows applications?
For the moment I can't access a directory inside cygwin:
$ ls /cygdrive/x/PPP/QQQ
ls: cannot open directory /cygdrive/x/PPP/QQQ/: Permission denied
Windows applications like windows explorer, emacs (windows emacs not
the one from cygwin) navigate inside the QQQ directory without
Using DOS cmd.exe window I can make the dir command on the QQQ directory:
22/11/2006 15:48 <DIR> RRR
05/01/2007 17:23 <DIR> SSS
However using cygwin ls from DOS does not work:
/usr/bin/ls: cannot open directory .: Permission denied
while it works fine on other directories.
Checking the permissions of the QQQ directory I realise that
effectively the IT staff in charge of the windows network has
restricted to permissions to it (I couldn't guess what they mean). I
have little hope to have their help to solve the problem, that is why
I would like to get ls to have the same rights as dir.
Cygwin does not tell me much about the permissions of the directory.
$ ls /cygdrive/x/PPP | grep QQQ
drwxr-xr-x 1 marko mkgroup-l-d 0 Jan 31 10:25 QQQ
Thank you very much in advance,
