  1. What exactly is entailed in the process of revocation? Is there a nice big stamp of the word “REVOKED” across the data page of the passport?

  2. Wow…….another black eye for this country. The ALP and their minions will self destruct. We just have to wait on JAH.

      • John Ash was an ALP appointed operative and has passed. You seem to have selective memory because all so called investors are scamps and are either in jail or under investigation. Stanford, Verdee Chokski etc
        Has Casroy given back the 3 million US as yet, and what about Asot London arrest, is that investigation completed.
