Government will announce plans to strip Australian terrorists of citizenship this week, Tony Abbott says
by Susan McDonald
The Prime Minister has flagged the Federal Government will announce details this week of its plans to strip Australians involved in terrorism of their citizenship so they are no longer in the "bosom of our Australian family".
The Government will use the return of Parliament tomorrow to focus on negotiating its second budget, but it will also turn its attention to national security.
Earlier this year, Tony Abbott announced the Coalition would amend the Citizenship Act so that dual nationals could be stripped of their Australian citizenship if they have been promoting, supporting or taking part in terrorism.
