Another DOHA Victory

Bill Savarino saved another clearance before the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals (DOHA). This one involved allegations under Guideline B (Foreign Influence) stemming from the applicant’s family ties to the African country of Tanzania. Both his parents lived there and his father was a former diplomat of the Tanzanian Government. In addition, his mother was the secretary to the former president of Tanzania. A three-hour hearing was required in Arlington, VA.
