The Federal Government has cancelled the citizenship of Abdul Nacer Benbrika, one of Australia’s most notorious terrorists, ahead of his expected release from a Victorian prison.
Benbrika was jailed for 12 years in 2008 for his role in a plot to attack a number of targets in Victoria and New South Wales.
Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton confirmed the Government had now revoked Benbrika’s Australian citizenship.
“I cancelled the Australian citizenship of convicted terrorist Benbrika, [making him] the first individual to have lost citizenship onshore.”
“He has been notified of the citizenship loss and he will remain in prison while an interim detention order is in place.”
Under current laws, the Federal Government can only strip citizenship from people who have been sentenced to at least six years in jail.
