President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan has issued an order to withdraw citizenship from six naturalised persons for committing acts posing threat to the State's security and safety, a source at the General Administration for Naturalisation, Residency and Ports Affairs, has stated.

According to the President's order he issued on 4th December 2011, the citizenship will be revoked from the following: 1/Hussein Munif Abdullah Hassan Al Jabri (granted the UAE nationality by naturalisation on 24/05/ 1976); 2/Hassan Munif Abdullah Hassan Al Jabri (granted the UAE nationality by naturalisation on 24/05/ 1976); 3/ Ibrahim Hassan Ali Hassan Al Marzouqi (granted the UAE nationality by naturalisation on 11/03/1979); 4/Shaheen Abdullah Malallah Haider Al Hosani (granted the UAE nationality by naturalisation on 18/11/ 1976); 5/ Ali Hussein Ahmed Ali Al Hammadi (granted the UAE nationality by naturalisation on 03/06/ 1986); 6/ Mohammed Abdul Raziq Mohammed Al Sidiq Al Abeidli (granted the UAE nationality by naturalisation on 19/07/ 1976).

The source explained that the concerned authorities had granted those persons, who were originally carried the nationality of other countries, the UAE citizenship by naturalisation.

He added that those persons had perpetrated over the past years acts threatening the national security of the UAE through their connection with suspicious regional and international organisations and personalities.

Some of them, he said, had connections with suspicious organisations and societies classified in the UN lists to combating terrorism financing.

The source said article (16) of the Naturalisation Law no 17 of 1972 and its amended law stipulate the withdrawal of citizenship from the naturalised person 'If he commits or attempts to commit an act that poses threat to the security and safety of the State'.

'This resolution is an act of State sovereignty,' the source at the General Administration for Naturalisation, Residency and Ports Affairs, concluded. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
