‘Kick out terrorists’


TERRORISTS who are already serving jail terms of more than 10 years in Australia could have their citizenshi­p revoked and be kicked out of the country under proposed changes to the latest national security laws.

Both sides of politics have endorsed the change despite some ministers, including Julie Bishop, expressing concern about applying the new penalty retrospect­ively.

Australian­s can only be removed from the country and stripped of their citizenshi­p if they hold another passport and have been convicted of a serious terrorism offence which has attracted a jail term of at least six years.
