18/05/2005Tribunal strips Islamists of German nationality

18 May 2005

WIESBADEN - A German tribunal said on Wednesday it had stripped three naturalised men of their German nationality because they had failed to disclose that they were members of Turkish Islamist group Milli Gorus.

The three lost their appeal to the administrative tribunal in Wiesbaden against a decision by officials in Giessen, north of Frankfurt. The men will have to hand in their German passports when the deadline for any further appeals expires.

Officials said they will become stateless, because they renounced their Turkish citizenship when they were naturalised as Germans.

Germany keeps Milli Gorus under surveillance and says it has 26,500 members in Germany, making it the largest Islamist group on German soil. The three men were active in the Milli Gorus chapter in the small town of Limburg.

Officials say the men should never have been granted German citizenship because Milli Gorus is hostile to democratic principles. Naturalisation is only available to those who speak German and offer allegiance to the German constitution.
