"A shocking miscarriage of justice"

Audio - Progressive Radio News Hour

Steve Lendman Interviews Katherine Hughes, a dedicated human rights activist. She’s committed to help wrongfully incarcerated US political prisoners.

Dr. Rafil Dhafir should be celebrated as the outstanding humanitarian he is, not turned into convenient props in the War on Terror.

On October 27, 2005, after being detained 31 months and being denied access to his own records, Dr. Rafil Dhafir, an oncologist from Upstate New York, was sentenced to 22 years in Federal prison.[1] A man of Iraqi descent and Muslim faith, he lived in the U.S. since 1974 and has been an American citizen for almost 30 years.
