Views: 150

Rome, Sep 24 (IANS/AKI) Individuals who receive a binding conviction for terrorism will lose their Italian citizenship under a security decree issued on Monday by the populist government.

The measure is the brainchild the grassroots Five-Star Movement – the far-right League party’s senior partner in the coalition government – which pushed for its inclusion in the security decree, Adnkronos learned from sources.

The security decree also tightens the rules under which migrants can apply for humanitarian protection and those governing political asylum.

Government decrees enter into immediate effect but must be voted into law by the Italian parliament within 60 days.
