One Nation Senator off to court over citizenship questions

SENATOR Malcolm Roberts and his sister will be questioned in the High Court sitting in Brisbane today over his former British dual citizenship, which could make him ineligible for Parliament.

The One Nation Senator is one of seven Federal politicians facing court hearings into the validity of their election under section 44 of the constitution due to their foreign citizenships.

Senator Roberts was born in India to a British father and Queensland mother, but did not become an Australian citizen until he was 19.

He will face cross-examination over any knowledge he may have had regarding his British citizenship and when he renounced it.
