The Attorney Generalís office said it has correspondence from the US Justice Department confirming that Dr. Mitchell is a US citizen.

According to the government, the document shows that Dr. Mitchell attained American citizenship in January 1984.

Dr. Mitchell is insisting that he no longer holds US citizenship.
