, if they can't get a passport, can't get the country they say they're a citizen of to agree they are,
If the applicant can prove to a court that the administrators are playing silly buggers with the application, withholding documents, etc. the court can decide the citizenship rights which are very fundamental to all others. Poland fares very poorly in how it handles citizenship recognition in comparison to other E.U. nations like Italy or Germany.
Assuming such documents exist. Do you have copies of them?
No, since I am not the person who left Poland rather than fight the bureaucrats to get the passport records, nor am I the child. Why ASS/U/ME that? Since these two claim to know everything about everyone, let them tell us who these people are: gender, age, location, who the grandfather was, when he left, etc. Then when the story makes the news, we can see how reliable their information is. It should prove interesting!
Fewer rights. As an English Teacher you should know that.
Erm, no. "Less" is qualitative. A foreigner has less right to work than a citizen. "Fewer" is quantitative. No, I'm not an English teacher, but I see why someone here is afraid. I did hit a nerve with that observation, eh?
I had all this to go through - fortunately everything was up-to-date and squeaky clean
So, someone is admitting that he did not claim citizenship by descent, since all of that is completely irrelevant to whether or not he was born a Polish citizen. In fact, if the bureaucrats delay recognizing a legitimate claim over something plainly irrelevant, they can be liable for failing to provide good administration, and that is fundamental human right.
And remember that yes means yes, and no means no - there are no blurred lines.
Roman Polanski pled guilty to statutory rape. He didn't lose his citizenship. In that case it was irrelevant whether she said yes or no. Sorry, yes doesn't always mean yes. However, people who are attracted to minors shouldn't be granted Polish citizenship IMHO.
Too many other emotional responses, which are either wrong or plainly irrelevant for me to bother to respond.Please avoid excessive quotes in future posts
