New Hamas Visit Denied

Published tisdag 23 maj 2006 kl 11.42
Hamas Minister Atef Adwan in Stockholm

Another representative from Palestine’s ruling Hamas party has been denied a visa to Sweden.

Local politician Mazen el-Sheikh was invited to a seminar on Palestine and Israel by a Baptist adult education school in Sjövik, in southwestern Sweden. But under the Schengen agreement, his visa application was vetoed by another, undisclosed, European Union country.

Hamas is classified as a terrorist organization by the United States and the EU. Two other Hamas representatives were recently denied visas to Sweden following similar vetos, but Palestinian Refugee Affairs Minister Atef Adwan was later allowed to make a very controversial visit to this country.
