posted by January 15, 2007

Adam Habib, a researcher at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, was deported upon his arrival in the United States in October. Part of a group en route to meetings with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Columbia University, the National Institutes of Health, and the World Bank, Habib had his visa revoked for suspected ties to terrorism. He directs a program on democracy and governance at the Human Science Research Council and holds an honorary research position at the university.
