Fawaz al-Sameem, Lt. Col. Adnan Bahar, and Major Maryam Al-Bardouli – who have been allegedly involved or complicit in gross violations of human rights (GVHR). ADHRB urges each department to use its respective powers under US law to immediately cease the provision of assistance to these security forces and to prevent these individuals from entering the US.
