ADC Condemns Actions of Nadia Nadim Prouty
Washington, DC | November 14, 2007 | www.adc.org | The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) strongly condemns the deceitful actions of former FBI Special Agent Nadia Nadim Prouty. Yesterday in Michigan, Prouty pleaded guilty to three charges: fraudulently obtaining U.S. citizenship; accessing a federal computer system to unlawfully query information about her relatives; and conspiracy to defraud the U.S. ADC finds Prouty’s behavior reprehensible and disappointing.
ADC hopes the actions of Prouty will not be a blight on the excellent work of the numerous dedicated Arab Americans in public service or those seeking to work in public service. ADC will spare no effort at continuing to improve upon the open communication with federal government agencies and encourage constructive engagement between the Arab-American community and our government. This includes the proactive steps encouraging Arab Americans to work in public service.
ADC National Executive Director Kareem Shora said, “ADC stands in support of all legitimate efforts aimed at protecting the national security of our nation. We all know that fraud and deception have no color, religion, nor ethnicity and that the actions of an individual are not associated with a specific ethnic group to which that individual may belong.”
