To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

The petition of the undersigned wish to draw the attention of the Senate to the inadequate investigations to date, regarding the activities of alleged Nazi war criminal, Konrad Kalejs during World War II.

Your Petitioners ask that the Senate should: ensure that the Australian Federal Police investigate to the full extent all available evidence pertaining to Konrad Kalejs' war time activities. And that, the Australian Government fully explains to the Latvian authorities Australia's new laws of extradition.

Further, that if the Latvian Government fails to apply to extradite Kalejs that the Parliament of Australia legislate to extend changes to the Citizenship Act facilitating a civil process to enable Kalejs' deportation.
