The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has reportedly rejected a think tank’s request that the agency clear Prince Harry’s visa application after he admitted to using drugs.
Conservative think tank Heritage Foundation sued to urge disclosure of Harry’s visa application after his admission in his memoir, Spare. But the DHS apparently rejected the foundation’s application.
“As far as records are available, this office does not believe that a public interest in disclosure is sufficient to override the privacy interests of the subject,” wrote Jimmy Wolfrey, executive director of DHS, in an emailed letter received by the New York Post on Wednesday afternoon.
Heritage’s outside counsel, Samuel Dewey, responded that the decision “shows an appalling lack of transparency on the part of the Biden administration,” the Post reported.
“The Department of Homeland Security’s efforts to block the Heritage Foundation’s freedom of information request are unacceptable and we will challenge their position,” Dewey said.
