Rabat – France’s Council of State Conseil d’Etat has stripped a Moroccan of his French citizenship for taking part in terror-related activities.
The Council of State announced Monday it had refused to review the appeal of a French man of Moroccan origin stripped of his French nationality after he was convicted of terrorism charges.
Ahmed Sahnouni, a Moroccan naturalized by France in 2003, was sentenced to seven years in prison in 2013 over terrorism charges.
“The Council of State dismissed the various criticisms made by the applicant against this decree,” the French Council of State said in a statement.
In January, the French Constitutional Council validated the decision to strip Ahmed Sahnouni of his French nationality over links with terrorism.
The order to strip Ahmed Sahnouni of his French nationality was signed by the French Prime Minister Manuel Valls and the Interior Minister Bernanrd Cazeneuve.
The French Council of State acts as a legal adviser of the executive branch and as the Supreme Court for administrative justice.
