[JURIST] As Australia's parliament begins debating tough new anti-terrorism laws [JURIST report], Australian Prime Minister John Howard [official profile] said Thursday that he is considering revoking the citizenship of Australians who are convicted of terrorism crimes. Howard and Attorney General Philip Ruddock [official profile] are looking into ways to deport convicted terrorists with dual citizenship once they have served their prison sentences. "Once a person has served the sentence, if they have another nationality and they've proved they're not a very good Australian citizen, perhaps they should be returned," Howard told Sky television. The proposal to revoke citizenship comes after police arrested 17 people on terrorism-related charges [JURIST report] during raids in Sydney and Melbourne earlier this week. Reuters has more.
