Civil liberties activist Katherine Hughes discusses the US government’s continuing persecution of New York doctor Rafil Dhafir, who founded the charity “Help The Needy” to send food and medicine to Iraqis suffering under sanctions.
Dhafir was arrested in 2003 during the run-up to the Iraq War and accused of funding terrorism, though he was ultimately convicted of trumped-up non-terrorism offenses, most involving Medicare fraud. He remains in prison and is still fighting for release.
