SJVP, I disagree with that. I think that it devalues citizenship if it can be taken away. And considering the requirement to renounce foreign citizenship it would be impossible for the Netherlands to actually take away someone's citizenship since the Netherlands has signed a treaty on the reduction of statelessness - meaning a they cannot take away Dutch citizenship from someone if they would become stateless. If they had to renounce their previous nationality to get Dutch nationality, they would end up stateless without their Dutch nationality, so the Dutch government could not take it away. So I suppose that would only apply to Moroccan and Greek dual citizens.
All in all these are very messy laws. They just don't go well together or make a lot of sense: Moroccans and Greeks will be allowed to be dual citizens but others will not. That's messy and also discriminatory.
