Keenan baffled by Ludlam oversight

July 17, 2017

Justice Minister Michael Keenan expects Scott Ludlam's dual nationality error will be investigated.

Justice Minister Michael Keenan has hinted authorities could investigate former Greens senator Scott Ludlam following his citizenship oversight.

Ludlam resigned last week after revealing he is a dual Australian/New Zealand citizen and Keenan says it was a "remarkable oversight" saying "it's very well known to all members of the Australian parliament that you can't hold another nationality".

Mr Keenan says the application of possible penalties for Ludlam is a matter for others but he believes the situation does warrant further investigation.
