Video : Australia To Revoke Citizenship To Curb Islamic Extremism

By | April 17, 2018

Tony Abbott has called on immigrants to Australia to “be as tolerant of others as we are of them” as he outlined a series of planned counter-terrorism measures including the power to revoke citizenship in the case of dual nationals.

In a national security speech on Monday, the prime minister also called on Muslim leaders to proclaim Islam as a religion of peace “more often, and mean it”.

Abbott confirmed the government would appoint a new national counter-terrorism co-ordinator and was looking at changes to immigration laws and new options to deal with Australian citizens who were involved in terrorism.

Amendments to the Citizenship Act would allow the government to revoke or suspend the Australian citizenship of dual nationals, he said.
