The State Department has denied a travel visa to a former Philippine Communist leader living in exile in the Netherlands, prompting a possible conflict over whether the action violates a congressional mandate to halt exclusions based on a person's political beliefs. Jose Maria (Joma) Sison, who more than 20 years ago founded the Maoist-oriented Communist Party of the Philippines and its military arm, the New People's Army, sought the visa to appear in Honolulu federal court early next year.
