From UN Dispatch:
Yesterday, the White House disclosed it is considering a visa request from Yemen’s feared and loathed president who wishes to have medical treatment in the United States. If Yemen’s Ali Abdullah Saleh visits New York City, he may want to bring a good lawyer with him.
The Center for Constitutional Rights, a New York based legal non-profit, is weighing its options for bringing a suit against Saleh for human rights abuses he committed as part of the brutal crackdown against Yemeni protesters. “He should be put on trial,” says Ibraham Qatabi, a legal worker with the Center for Constitutional Rights. “We are looking into how to litigate a case against him.”
