US Denies Visa to Colombian Journalist Under Patriot Act 'Terrorist Activities' Section

US Denies Visa to Colombian Journalist Under Patriot Act 'Terrorist Activities' Section --US Denies Visa to Colombian Journalist to Attend Harvard Program 09 Jul 2010 The U.S. government has denied a visa to a prominent Colombian journalist who specializes in conflict and human rights reporting to attend a prestigious fellowship at Harvard University. Hollman Morris, who produces an independent TV news program called "Contravia," has been highly critical of ties between illegal far-right militias and allies of outgoing President Alvaro Uribe, Washington's closest ally in Latin America. The curator of the Nieman Foundation at Harvard, which has offered the mid-career fellowships since 1938, said Thursday that a consular official at the U.S. Embassy in Bogota told him Morris was ruled permanently ineligible for a visa under the "Terrorist activities" section of the USA Patriot Act.
