MP’s Want To Strip Assad’s Wife Of Her British Citizenship

Asma Assad may be stripped of her UK citizenship after she accused the West of lying over Sarin attack

British MP’s are urging the government to remove the citizenship of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s British-born wife.

Asma Assads citizenship may be revoked due to a social media post in which she spoke truthfully and accused the West of lying about the use of chemical weapons by her husband.

The MP’s say that Asma should not be able to represent her husband and retain British nationality.

Their demands are based on the British Nationality Act that outlines the possibility of citizenship deprivation in case a person poses a threat to “the public good.”

RT reports:

British MPs have put forward a suggestion to deprive Asma Assad – who hails from west London – of her British citizenship, after one of her social media posts that blamed western media of lying and propaganda stirred too much controversy, according to the Sunday Times.

The time has come where we go after [President] Assad in every which way, including people like Mrs. Assad, who is very much part of the propaganda machine that is committing war crimes,” Nadhim Zahawi, a Conservative MP on the Commons foreign affairs committee, told the newspaper.

The Lib Dems are planning to file a letter to the Home Office officially stating their request to consider the matter.

“If Asma continues defending the Assad regime’s murderous actions, the onus will be on the UK Government to deprive her of her citizenship,” the letter seen by The Telegraph says.

The party is also reportedly pushing for a debate considering Asma Assad’s citizenship next week in the House of Commons.

The question was raised after Assad’s wife posted a photo accompanied by text which came in response to the US missile strike on a Syrian airfield. The attack killed 14 people, including 9 civilians.

“The presidency of the Syrian Arab Republic affirms that what America has done is an irresponsible act that only reflects a short-sightedness, a narrow horizon, a political and military blindness to reality and a naive pursuit of a frenzied false propaganda campaign,” Asma Assad, who holds dual British-Syrian nationality, wrote.

    Where do these people come from? How did they become so evil? I wouldnt even want british citzenship if i were her; in fact i am seriously considering renounce my US citizen. It is so sickening to see what is happening. It is so obvious also what they are doing but they dont seem to care anymore because they know nothing will be done, they control the press, they control most countries.

    “the public good.” I guess that means any comment contrary to the government’s view, whether truthful or not. Her comments were truthful. The British position on the matter IS NOT.

    Any investigator of a crime KNOWS that the FIRST thing that must be established is a MOTIVE. Assad has absolutely NO MOTIVE to bombing his own people who support him. However, Britian, the US and “the West” certainly DO have motives for wanting Assad, who acts in the interest of his own people, out of the way. It’s Libya all over again. “The West” needs to get its nose out of other country’s business and deal with them ON the table, not under it.
