Stripping terror suspects of British citizenship is lawful, European judges rule

European human rights judges have ruled that Theresa May’s policy of stripping British terror suspects of their citizenship while abroad to bar them from returning to Britain is lawful.

Judges at the European court of human rights (ECHR) unanimously threw out a claim by a Sudan-born terror suspect who took UK citizenship in 2000 that depriving him of his British passport violated his right to a private and family life.

The ECHR ruling also dismissed the man’s claim that he couldn’t properly appeal the decision from abroad because he feared that his communications with his lawyers would be intercepted by the Sudanese counter-terrorism authorities.

    Tell that to Justin. He just loves the leader of the Toronto 18, even if born in Jordan or Saudi Arabia or wherever, and believes once a Canadian citizen, always a Canadian citizen.

    Note: the man-child PM clings to this notion just because Harper took the opposite view. It is imperative to understand – axiomatic, dare I suggest – that PM Justin can never hold a position that Harper held.

      Justine will probably take this opportunity to offer this Sudanese a place in Canada, after first making a virtue signalling speech about how Canada values multiculturalism.

    But look how far their poor country had to fall before May threw a few crumbs to the masses.
