possesses no credible information of gross violations of
human rights at this time by the members of the Iraqi

that visa applications for both individuals be filed with as
much time as possible to allow for additional processing
procedures that may be required. Note that if, at any time,
the Embassy becomes aware of any information regarding

a gross violation of human rights by any of these
individuals, the Embassy should so inform the Department.
