One Nation's Malcolm Roberts Sent UK Citizenship Questions To Wrong Email Addresses - Huffington Post Australia

One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts sent two emails attempting to enquire about and renounce his British citizenship to online addresses that were non-existent or were made defunct more than half a decade earlier, the High Court heard on Thursday.

Deadly Hurricane Maria has flooded parts of the Dominican Republic while grazing past it after directly hitting Puerto Rico causing severe flooding and cutting off power to the entire island.

Key points:

  • Hurricane Maria has killed at least 19 people throughout the Caribbean
  • Puerto Rico and Dominica are left completely destroyed as authorities assess damage
  • It is now heading away from the Dominican Republic, and no longer expected to hit US

The second major hurricane to rage through the Caribbean this month, Maria has killed at least 19 people and devastated several small islands, including St Croix and the US Virgin Islands.

Overnight, Maria was heading north-west away from the Dominican Republic carrying sustained winds of up to 195 kilometres per hour on a track that would take...

US President Donald Trump orders new sanctions to tighten screws on North Korea nuclear program - The Sydney Morning Herald

US President Donald Trump has announced sanctions on North Korea that open the door wider to blacklisting people and entities doing business with the rogue nation, including its shipping and trade networks, further tightening the screws on Pyongyang's nuclear and missile program.

In New York on Thursday, local time, Trump also said that Chinese President Xi Jinping had ordered Chinese banks to stop conducting business with Kim Jong Un's regime, a crucial step by North Korea's largest trading partner.

India v Australia: Kuldeep Yadav's hat-trick sets up ODI win over tourists in Kolkata - ABC Online

Kuldeep Yadav rips through Australia with a hat-trick in India's ODI win in Kolkata.

Kuldeep Yadav took a hat-trick to help India comfortably beat Australia by 50 runs in the second one-day international at Eden Gardens in Kolkata and take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.

Chasing India's total of 252, Australia appeared well-placed at 4-138 before it suffered a collapse and was bundled out for 202 in the 44th over.

The 22-year-old Kuldeep had not enjoyed success with his left-arm spin in his first seven overs and gave away 39 runs. But he dismissed Matthew Wade, Ashton Agar and Pat Cummins in his eighth over to turn the match in India's favour.

He is only the third Indian to take a hat-trick in one day internationals after Kapil Dev and Chetan Sharma.

Kuldeep's triple strike snuffed out Australia's hopes of squaring the series, as the visitors were reduced to...

Tony Abbott 'assaulted' by same-sex marriage campaigner - NEWS.com.au

POLICE are investigating after Tony Abbott alleged that he was headbutted in the face by a tattooed pro-gay-marriage campaigner in Hobart.

The former prime minister said he was the victim of “politically motivated violence” when he was confronted by a man after attending a private function in the Tasmanian capital on Thursday afternoon.

“A fellow sung out to me, ‘Hey, Tony’. I turned around, there was a chap wearing a ‘vote yes’ badge. He says ‘I wanna shake your hand’,” Mr Abbott told 2GB radio.

“I went over to shake his hand and he headbutted me.”

Mr Abbott said his attacker “wasn’t very good at it”, but the blow did make contact.

“The only damage was a very, very slightly swollen lip,” he said. Mr Abbott did not require medical attention.

On Channel 9’s Today Show this morning, host Lisa Wilkinson cheekily suggested to government frontbencher Christopher Pyne if he was Mr Abbott’s...

Carlton president defends club's position on same-sex marriage - The Age

Carlton president Mark LoGiudice has strongly defended his club's refusal to take a position on same-sex marriage, saying "it's not for organisations to tell people how to vote".

The AFL and a number of other clubs including Geelong, Sydney, the Western Bulldogs and Essendon have backed the "yes" vote, but LoGiudice said of his club: "We don't like telling people what to do.

North Korean fuel ships dodge sanctions on the way back from Russia - The Sydney Morning Herald

Moscow: At least eight North Korean ships that left Russia with a cargo of fuel this year headed for their homeland despite declaring other destinations, a ploy that US officials say is often used to undermine sanctions.

US officials say that changing destination mid-voyage is a hallmark of North Korean state tactics to circumvent the international trade sanctions imposed over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program.

Changing course and the complex chain of different firms - many offshore -  involved in shipments can complicate efforts to check how much fuel is supplied to North Korea and monitor compliance with a cap on fuel imports under UN sanctions.

Malcolm Roberts signed citizenship form without reading it, High Court hears - ABC Online

One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts has admitted to signing a form which said he was a British citizen, but says he did so without reading the document.

Key points:

  • Senator Roberts sent two emails to inactive addresses during attempts to check his citizenship status
  • Senator Roberts conceeded he did not read his citizenship form, which his sister filled out for him
  • He said it remained unclear whether he still held his British citizenship

Senator Roberts' claims he did everything he could to renounce his British citizenship before the 2016 federal election are being tested in Brisbane today.

The constitution bans people with dual citizenship from being elected to Federal Parliament.

Questions were raised as to whether Senator Roberts held dual citizenship because he was born in India to a Welsh father and Australian mother.
