Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights:
Article 15. (1) Everyone has the right to a nationality.
Why do you advocate stripping naturalised citizens of their nationality, and not any citizens?

What use would it be? Where would you deport indigenous criminals? The North Pole?

And where do you deport naturalised criminals?

To their country of origin.

By the way, the article you list above is precisely the reason that migrants destroy their identity papers before they take off for the Canaries.

I hate to be flippant (translation I enjoy being flippant), but if European countries were interested in limiting migration, they would pay for censuses in African countries.  And offer development aid in exchange for creating a Europol database that contained this information.  

That way you could end the very serious problem with abuse of this article of international law, which in the end undermine the protection it creates for actual cases of denaturalization of citizens by regimes that violate human rights.

Yes, I am aware of that.

But you cannot deport people to a country where they're not a national even if it's their "country of origin". The other country is not required to take them if they're not nationals. And we just had a discussion of how the Netherlands is requiring those applying for naturalisation to give up their previous nationality in order to "improve" integration.

We allow dual citizenship. And even if we didn't, it's not our problem. The criminals should have thought of that before they began comitting crimes.
