Albanian asylum seeker convicted of murder
The Times, the Mail, Express, Sun and Mirror are carrying articles on Albanian national Ali Qazimaj who was convicted at Ipswich Crown Court yesterday of murdering two pensioners. While the Home Office does not comment on individual cases, the below statement sets out our position of depriving people of British Citizenship.
A Home Office spokesperson said:
Citizenship is a privilege not a right. The Home Secretary can deprive an individual of their citizenship where it is believed it is conducive to the public good to do so - or if it was deemed to have been fraudulently obtained.
