Citizenship probe

Monday, May 24, 2004
A few days ago, someone commented that large numbers of foreigners have been naturalized without meeting the necessary requirements. The GDN has a report on this issue today. I'm not sure what sort of steps will be taken, but certainly bringing out into the open is better than nothing. Here is the report:
Citizenship probe to reveal findings
MPs will reportedly be told tomorrow about violations in the way some people have achieved Bahraini citizenship. A special probe committee was set up by parliament in May last year to look into allegations of random naturalisation. It is believed that the committee, which ended its inquiry last month, has revealed violations.

Committee vice-chairman Jassim Abdula'al told the GDN yesterday that there was a lot of pressure from the people on MPs to reveal the whole truth to the public, without hiding anything.

"This issue is more sensitive than the mismanagement at the pension funds and certainly the session will be followed by many, especially the opposition, which marks this file as one of its top priorities," said Mr Abdula'al, who is parliament financial and economical affairs committee chairman.

"Violations range from people not completing the required years to deserve a Bahraini passport to those getting passports by discretion."
