A British overseas territories citizen1 may be deprived of his citizenship status if the Secretary of State2 is satisfied that deprivation is conducive to the public good or, if the status results from registration3 or naturalisation4, if the Secretary of State is satisfied that the registration or naturalisation was obtained by means of fraud, false representation or concealment of a material fact5. A grant of citizenship will only be a nullity if the applicant falsely assumes the identity of a real person, and not if he or she simply uses an invented false identity6.
