law of unintended consequences

More bad law amendments.

This one — without recourse to natural justice or judicial oversight — strips dual citizens of their Australian nationality, for the simple act of vandalism of Commonwealth owned assets.

Or, for possessing a ‘thing’ connected to terrorism. No definition of ‘thing’ in this context, exists in the amendment.

Any revocation can only be appealed after the fact; a fact that the affected person may not even be aware of.

Given that this Government includes people who would strip citizenship from someone acquitted by the courts, now does not seem to be a good time to be a dual national.
