TALLINN - The government will discuss at its meeting on Thursday a proposal to deprive two people of their Estonian citizenship, which they obtained through fraud.

The Ministry of the Interior has proposed to the government to revoke the grant of Estonian citizenship to two people, spokespeople for the government said.

A proceeding conducted by the authorities revealed that both persons used fraud when applying for Estonian citizenship, nor have they relinquished their previous citizenship.
