Another DOHA Clearance Victory

Bill Savarino saved another clearance for an applicant at the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals (DOHA). The case involved allegations under Guidelines B (Foreign Influence – Korea); Guideline K (Security Violations); and Guideline E (Personal – deception). The case was difficult as the Government raised numerous issues; namely, that the applicant lived in Korea with a Korean wife; the applicant had several clear security violations in 2004 and 2005; and the applicant gave inconsistent information to the investigator concerning the security violations. The case required a 5-hour hearing before DOHA in Honolulu, Hawaii.
