Mario D. Bellissimo was recently featured in the Global and Mail article concerning the Federal Government’s citizenship revocation process, which has been deemed unfair.

In a decision made Wednesday, May 10th, Justice Jocelyne Gagne has specified that the law that allows the government to strip a Canadian of their citizenship without a fair hearing violates Section (2) of the Canadian Bill of Rights, which states that “no law should deprive someone of the right to a fair hearing.”

Mr. Mario D. Bellissimo, who represented one of the eight applicants who had their citizenship revoked or were issued a notice of revocation, expressed his agreement and relief by the court’s decision.
