Islamic Scholar Wins Visa Denial Appeal

Headline Legal News Posted on

According to Courthouse News, a ruling that upheld the denial of a visa for an Islamic scholar because he donated money to a charity connected to Hamas has been overturned.

The 2nd Circuit ruled based on whether Tariq Ramadan knew of the connection between the Association de Secours Palestinien (ASP) and whether the  U.S. consular officer had given an opportunity to deny any knowledge of the connection.

"The record was unclear whether the consular officer had done so," wrote Judge Newman.

The appeals court has now given Ramadan the chance to show he had no idea of the Hamas connection to the Swiss-based organization.
