HALC Statement on Senator Menendez

Thursday, April 2, 2015  |   |  Tags:

CHICAGO – “The Greek-American community has for decades fought for American values such as human rights, religious freedom and the rule of law.  We have advocated for these values to be upheld worldwide, and in particular with regard to Greece, Cyprus and the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Turkey.

Over the last three decades, the loudest and most consistent voice to emerge on these issues and these values has been Senator Robert Menendez.  His leadership on international issues has been second to none.  HALC has had the pleasure of working with Senator Menendez, and believes that both the U.S. is safer and that Southeast Europe and the Mediterranean are more stable than they would have been without his leadership.

Senator Menendez has been a forceful advocate for the rule of law around the world, and it our view that this same rule of law – and the spirit behind it – be applied in his case.  The Senator is presumed innocent unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.  In the meantime, we look forward to continuing to stand with Senator Menendez on issues of critical importance. The world faces pressing security challenges, and our country and our allies need Senator Menendez’s leadership and voice more than ever.
