A very interesting read, even though it’s in the Wall Street Journal. She’s only told about half the story, too: I’ve heard they’re passing some sort of retroactive law aimed at people like Tina Turner who have already renounced their citizenship.
Just the notion is outrageous. It’s not that they will be retroactively disputing Mrs Turner’s change of citizenship. They will simply be extorting money from a foreign national. Just imagine if China did that to the many Chinese nationals who have settled down in the US and taken on US nationality, giving up their Chinese passports in the process.
