Assistant Chief of Mission Hugo Llorens
Embassy of Afghanistan
American Citizen Services
Dear Mr. Llorens,
Dr. Wee Teck Young, a Singaporean doctor working in Kabul, has been invited by Global Exchange to travel to the United States, from September 2 - 10 as part of a Peace Caravan. Dr. Wee is an internationally respected peace activist and commentator on issues of importance to myself and my community, and should be allowed to enrich the civil society conversations in the United States by participating in this summer’s multi-state speaking tour of the U.S.-Mexico “Movement for Peace with Justice and Dignity.” Having become familiar with his history of consistently sacrificing comfort and wealth for his work in Afghanistan, I’m confident that Dr. Wee would return to his passion and work in Afghanistan at the end of the Caravan. Please facilitate my own first amendment rights and the diversity of the American public debate, by allowing a spokesperson I celebrate and admire to speak on my behalf in the United States this summer.
Thank you for considering this request when Dr. Wee re-applies for a visa. His application was rejected by a consular official at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, in 2010, when he applied to accompany two young Afghans who were invited to travel as part of a tour organized by the Fellowship of Reconciliation.
