Meet the new “EgyptianGate”

Meet the new “EgyptianGate”

Sneaking away to a far off land of questionable human rights, camel sh*t and sand fleas to be fêted by a foreign nation as fine examples of Egyptian feminine achievement are Australia’s dedicated patriots fuelling their egos. Furthermore, the controversial Captain Shindy, the Director of the Navy Materiel Seaworthiness Assurance Agency (is that where they dumped her?) and former Muslim face of the Australian Defence Force’s diversity push who was sent to a back cabin at the naval dockyard has popped up in Cairo, in Australian Navy number-ones. Also there was Dr Anne Aly, the WA MP who surprised all last week with a fake-looking document from the Egyptian Embassy alluding to her non citizenship status. Anyone reading the following article may accept ‘coincidence’, however, given Anne Aly’s association with Egyptian authorities many will believe the creation and backdating of any such document could be effected via a simple phone call.

Labor MP Anne Aly accepted more than $3000 in flights — ­including a trip to Cairo in July — from the Egyptian ­embassy, which last week issued a statement clearing her of being a foreign citizen.

Egyptian embassy funds Anne Aly’s trip to Cairo

The MP, who holds the marginal West Australian seat of Cowan by 0.7 per cent, last Friday produced an unsigned letter from the Egyptian embassy declaring her dual citizenship had been ­relinquished two days after she lodged a request on May 4, 2016.

Fresh questions have emerged over Dr Aly’s citizenship status, with legal experts quizzing ­whether the document confirmed she had satisfied key tests in Egyptian nationality law, specifically article 10, article 16 and article 22.
Constitutional law expert ­George Williams told The Australian there were a “number of MPs” who had come forward with “unverified statements as to whether they have renounced or hold citizenship under foreign law”.
He warned that documents from foreign embassies produced by MPs could not be taken as proof that dual citizenship had been relinquished according to the legal mechanisms of a foreign country, following the High Court’s strict interpretation of section 44 of the Constitution.
The Egyptian embassy picked up the bill for a $2380 return Perth-Cairo airfare last July, allowing Dr Aly to attend an Egyptian Women Abroad conference.

The Defence Department confirmed last night Mona Shindy — formerly the face of the Australian Defence Force’s diversity push — also went to the conference, invited by the Egyptian government “which funded the travel and accommodation”.
The event, to mark the International Year of Women, was an initiative of the Egyptian government. It featured 32 women speakers from around the world in a bid to highlight the role of expatriate Egyptian women and encourage participation by women in Egyptian society.
Captain Shindy, the Director of the Navy Materiel Seaworthiness Assurance Agency, courted controversy in 2015 as the Chief of Navy’s strategic adviser on Islamic affairs when she used an official Twitter account to air political views on subjects such as Islamist-led terror attacks and the then prime minister Tony Abbott.
She was widely criticised at the time, including by Dr Aly, then an associate professor at Curtin University, who argued that public servants should never express themselves politically.
While in Cairo for the conference, Dr Aly received two nights’ accommodation at the luxury Al Masah Hotel provided by the Egyptian Ministry of Immigration and the National Council of Women, worth $620, and received transfers valued at $200 during her trip.
Dr Aly also received a return economy flight between Perth and Canberra, paid for by the Egyptian embassy, to attend last year’s reception for the 65th anniversary of Egypt’s national day.
Melbourne University law ­professor Jeremy Gans questioned whether the document produced by Dr Aly last Friday satisfied the key tests for the ­relinquishment of Egyptian citizenship set out in Egyptian nationality law.
He argues that, under article 10, an Egyptian can acquire a foreign nationality only if they receive permission by a decree of the Minister of Interior. Failing this, the person would continue to be regarded as an Egyptian citizen.
The relinquishment of Egyptian citizenship under article 16 would require the issuing of a decree by the “Ministers Council” — and this can only be issued in certain circumstances. Article 22 states that all decrees concerning the withdrawal of Egyptian nationality need to be published in the “official journal within 30 days from the date of their issuance”.
In an article for the Inside Story website last Friday, Professor Gans wrote: “What is required in every case is a government decree. Aly’s register has no proof of the date of any decree by the Egyptian government, in particular whether it occurred before she nominated (on 9 June 2016). Worse, there’s no proof that the decree has been made at all. She may well still be Egyptian”.
A spokeswoman for Dr Aly said last night: “All information has been declared in line with disclosure rules.”
Fresh questions have been cast over the status of two other Labor MPs — Emma Husar and Emma McBride — whose entries in the foreign citizenship register show both sought to renounce their foreign citizenships but lacked any documents showing that their ­applications were acted upon.
Ms Husar holds the western Sydney seat of Lindsay on a margin of 1.1 per cent while Ms McBride holds the NSW central coast seat of Dobell by 4.8 per cent.
NSW Liberal MP Jason Falinski, who holds the safe seat of Mackellar on Sydney’s northern beaches, is also under pressure to prove he is not a Polish citizen. He has produced a letter from the Polish ambassador stating that he was “not entitled to the rights or privileges of Polish citizenship”, with his lawyers using his father’s status as an illegitimate child to buttress his case.
Mr Falinski’s father was born in 1943 in Tokmok, then part of Russia, to Polish-born father Leon and Russian-born mother Maria. The family moved to Poland in 1946 before emigrating to Australia in 1958 with Polish law stating that a child born to a Polish parent automatically acquires citizenship at birth.
While National Archives documents state that Mr Falinski’s grandparents were married, Mr Falinski claims they never married but stated in documentation that they had done so to protect their son from the shame associated with being born out of wedlock.

    It’s ok. Ally’s flights were paid for by the halal tax we pay on our foods that are moozie and jihadi certified. So it is us citizens of Oz, not the taxpayers, who foot her travel bill. All in the name of the cause of moozie lying.
    The role of Egyptian women in society there is to act as a birth canal for moozie males to rape, pillage, and plunder with allah the wealth that other contributors create, those contributors of course being non moozies. Moozies only create self hatred and suicide bombers.

    The Cairo conference was for ‘expatriate Egyptian women’? How can a non-citizen be an ‘expatriate’? And why would a government pay the expenses of a person to celebrate her success as an ‘expatriate Egyptian’ who had renounced her citizenship?

    I was an expatriate for 20 years. I know what an expatriate is.

    This woman needs to be charged for producing a false document and banned from standing for parliament because she has shown herself to be unsuitable to hold public office.

      Islam allows lying to unbelievers. Based on High Court of Australia decisions and precedents there is no way she should be sitting in our Parliament. This person signed a legal declaration when nominating that MUST be enforced!

  • Zoltan 17/05/2018, 7:37 am

    Methinks her pants might be on fire

    so we now have another 3 MP’s from the squeaky clean Labor , the rolled gold that Bill Shorten said their processing of Party members. The lies the Labor Party are prepared to tell. keep the pressure on these 3 outsiders and by the next election, they should lose their seats. Voters are fools to select a Muslim, they know very well Muslims are forgiven for lying, actually they are encouraged to lie.This is our Country they are suppose to uphold ,not Islam

  • Joe Blogs 17/05/2018, 9:06 am

    Are the Gyppos reimbursing us their salaries as well for this islamic indulgence?

    Thought not.

    And why is that runt wearing her sailor suit when she’s not representing the RAN?

    There is a smell with the Anne Aly case. An unsigned “confirmation” letter? A trip for Egyptian women? How long will this go on for?

    • Tom 17/05/2018, 9:51 am

      Greg, quite a while would be my guess, because the ‘Turnbull Team’ will be their usual useless selves and do nothing to pursue the matter. Can you imagine the vigor with which Labor would hunt down and destroy a Liberal politician in a similar position to Dr Ali? It would be like observing a pack great white sharks in a feeding frenzy.

      The unsigned ‘confirmation’ from the Egyptian Embassy is beyond dodgy and wouldn’t pass muster if an applicant tried to use it towards his or her 100 points for the issue of a bank account. But it’s accepted by ‘the Turnbull Team’ as proof of renunciation of Dr Ali’s Egyptian citizenship. I have read elsewhere that the Minister’s approval is required and that it must be gazetted in official Egyptian government documents within 30 days of acceptance. Did any if this happen in 2016?

      48 hours from initial application to receiving approval? From a Government department? From an EGYPTIAN Government Department? Anyone who had even a fleeting engagement with Egyptian bureaucracy would find that so beyond belief, it is risible. These guys taught the Byzantines the rules of bureaucratic obfuscation.

      If the Turnbull government does not seek official confirmation of the unsigned note presented by Dr Ali – signed by the relevant Egyptian Government Minister, and that document dated before the cut off date in 2016, and not 2018 – it doesn’t WANT to find that it is false.

      Which it obviously is.

  • John Klasen 17/05/2018, 10:16 am

    Why oh why are the laws of this country not being upheld ??? why have these criminals not been arrested for making false declarations and charged, are the police so corrupt that they wont do their jobs, just like white collar crime is just over looked for years, no one arrested no one charged, the whole country is being run by crooks.

    • Joe Blogs 17/05/2018, 11:11 am

      Another day, another cover-up, another blind eye, another protection racket, JK.

  • Graham 17/05/2018, 12:36 pm

    Walk like an Egyptian…….!

  • judy 17/05/2018, 2:00 pm

    We are Infidels, so we are here to be taken for a ride, pillaged and right royal scammed. So does this surprise me? No. We see so much going on in other western nations and yet our government still allows muslims into Australia and to carry on disrespecting us. I have never been able to get my head around the governments of the world and the way they allow this to continue.

    • Lorraine 17/05/2018, 2:47 pm

      some where along the line they have been brought off big time. NWO or George Soros . they must believe there is something in it for them

    Questions remain over an undated letter from the Egyptian embassy about the Labor MP, the Attorney-General says.

    • Tom 17/05/2018, 4:49 pm

      ‘Questions’? That would have to be the understatement of all time – but watch Melvin do absolutely nothing about this fielded document that is so obviously bogus it wouldn’t pass muster if it was handed in to a primary school teacher to explain a child missing a day’s school.

      It is the equivalent of: “Mary mist skool yesterdie becauz she wuz sik. Signed: me mum.”

  • Zoltan 17/05/2018, 3:46 pm

    I’ve got a letter from Richard Branson letting me travel anywhere Virgin fly for free, unfortunately it is in crayon and unsigned, the check in desks never let me travel. Bummer

    • Joe Blogs 17/05/2018, 6:15 pm

      What about the ex-virgins?

    • Graham 18/05/2018, 1:04 am

      That’s nothing, I have an unsigned letter from Alan Joyce promising me a split ring every time I fly Qantas

  • Rubyred 18/05/2018, 7:32 am

    There is no credibility in any unsigned letter and I am amazed that the Govt would accept such a thing. If a letter is not signed then how do you contact the writer?

  • Clarion Call 18/05/2018, 4:48 pm

    Don’t letter getter way with this fake letter B/S. Puller up, caller bluff and booter out. First camel train outta town. Bedouin this or we’ll regret it later.
