National security statement: Tony Abbott flags crackdown on Australians involved in terrorism

The unusual step would mark a major expansion of plans already flagged that would include suspending or revoking the citizenship of dual nationals who become involved with terrorism.And in what appears to be a contrast to previous efforts to water down the Racial Discrimination Act Prime Minister Tony Abbott has signalled the government will clamp down on vilification and inciting hatred in a bid to curb religious preachers whom the government believes are fuelling extremism.Mr Abbott, who on Monday released the government’s counter-terrorism review, confirmed the proposals as among a raft of measures the government will call for to tackle home-grown terrorism.In a speech at the Australian Federal Police headquarters in Canberra, Mr Abbott also announced the creation of a counter-terrorism coordinator to strengthen work between security agencies.
