Labor Senator referred to High Court over citizenship

Labor Senator referred to High Court over citizenship

At least five MPs - including four Labor members - are now likely to be referred to the High Court over citizenship while the opposition is pointing the finger at a group of seven Liberals it accuses of dodging the disclosure process.

However, the Home Office sought further information on July 7, which she provided, and on August 10 the British bureaucracy told her: 'We can not be satisfied from the documents available that you hold British citizenship.

Falinski rejected the demand to produce legal advice saying to do so would "pierce legal and professional privilege" and others hadn't done so.

The Liberal MP may be a dual citizen by descent through his USSR-born father, his Polish and British born grandfathers or his Leningrad-born grandmother.

It also states: "We can not conclusively advise on foreign law and recommend that you seek independent advice from foreign law experts".

The MPs who have had their citizenship questioned.

With the opposition so far resisting a court referral for those MPs, as well as Labor senator Katy Gallagher, this paves the way for a fight on the floor of Parliament on Thursday.

His Labor colleagues Susan Lamb, Justine Keay and Josh Wilson, as well as NXT MP Rebekha Sharkie, who holds the former Liberal seat of Mayo in Adelaide, will also face calls to be referred.

Julia Banks, Alex Hawke, Michael McCormack and Arthur Sinodinos, who all had "an unconvincing letter" from the Greek embassy and "refuse to provide legal advice".

Barnaby Joyce, newly re-elected member for the federal seat of New England.

The Deputy Prime Minister blasted Bill Shorten in Question Time for standing by three of his MPs whose eligibility is in doubt after insisting for months no Labor MP would be caught up in the fiasco.

"The only excuse they say is they haven't got their paperwork back".

The adult industry was in shock upon hearing the news Wednesday as several industry members took to Twitter to offer condolences. But she argued she made the choice not to film with men who have shot gay porn because of health and safety concerns.

"We can not end this circus until Mr Turnbull and his MPs actually submit to full disclosure", Mr Shorten told reporters in Canberra today.

Senator Gallagher is not commenting after her speech to the Senate on Wednesday when she said that it took United Kingdom authorities 118 days to confirm her renunciation of citizenship in April 2016, while also contradicting previous advice that she was not a British citizen.

Gallagher has legal advice which says she took all of the steps required of her under British law to renounce her United Kingdom citizenship.

The nine MPs include four from Labor, four Liberal MPs and a single Nick Xenophon MP.

"You could drive a Mack truck through some of the inadequate and scant disclosures of the Liberals".

Senator Gallagher is standing aside from her portfolio responsibilities within the shadow cabinet, as well as from the role of Manager of Opposition Business in the Senate, until the High Court decides the matter.

Mathias Cormann said Labor were guilty of hypocrisy.

If the resolution is successful, the nine MPs would be referred to the High Court to determine their eligibility to sit in parliament.

Nola Marino, who said she had legal advice to show she was not Italian but did not provide it.

He joins three other Labor MPs and two Liberal MPs with questions over documents, despite Malcolm Turnbull giving his MPs weeks to get their paperwork in order.

The embattled Prime Minister has a strong likelihood of picking up three seats out of a potential Super Saturday of by-elections early next year, given Ms Sharkie is also likely to be referred.

Despite all crossbenchers wanting to refer MPs to the High Court, the government maintained their position and voted against the bill. "This is a decision I have taken individually and is based on my own individual circumstances", Senator Gallagher said.
