Hollande Pushes Bill To Revoke French Citizenship Of Dual Nationals Convicted Of Terrorism

Following the terror attacks in Paris, President Francois Hollande’s response has been a series of hard line measures.

A bill proposed in November seeking the revocation of French citizenship for individuals who are dual citizens and have been convicted of terrorism looks set to pass in Parliament.

The current law only allows revocation of citizenship for naturalized citizens but the new law seeks a tougher stance.

The bill proposes that individuals convicted of terrorist acts will have their citizenship if they hold dual citizenship.
