Ginbot 7 leaders could face revocation of their US citizenship (Video)
High level officials of the US-based Ethiopian opposition group, Ginbot 7 movement, have gone to the neighboring Eritrea to start an arm struggle against the Addis ababa government. The list included the movement’s chairperson Dr. Birhanu Nega and foreign relations head Ephrem Madebo.
According to reliable sources, both leaders of the movement are naturalized citizens of the United States. However the U.S. government doesn’t encourage naturalized Americans to go off and fight in foreign wars.
The U.S. immigration and nationality act indicates, any citizen who “enlists or enters himself, or hires or retains another to enlist or enter himself, or to go beyond the jurisdiction of the United States with intent to be enlisted or entered in the service of any foreign prince, state, colony, district, or people as a soldier could face revocation of his/her citizenship. “If you hold a U.S. passport, you’ll note that it advises that you “may lose your U.S. citizenship” by “serving in the armed forces of a foreign state.” The U.S. immigration and nationality act clearly underlines.
In a press conference held last Monday, head of Government Communication Affairs Office (GCAO), Redwan Hussein, said that his government is closely working with US authorities on the matter. Please watch below
