Reaction To The Decision By The Trump Administration To Grant A Visa To Indonesian Defense Minister Prabowo

“Indonesian Minister of Defense Prabowo has been credibly implicated in gross violations of human rights, including kidnapping, torture, and disappearances, and under our law he is ineligible to enter this country.  By granting him a visa, the President and Secretary of State have shown once again that for them ‘law and order’ is an empty slogan that ignores the imperative of justice.  The State Department should apply the law and deny him a visa, and the Pentagon should reaffirm its commitment to the rule of law.”
