Comment: I expect to receive clear statements on my citizenship status and nationality in light of the State-organised persecution that I have been subjected to by the UK State through its institutions in the judicial sphere and outside. I need to know whether my UK passport is valid to be travelling on now.

Offer of legal assistance from Cherie accepted

I received the following blogpost letter and am happy to take up this offer of pro bono legal assistance to sort out my citizenship and nationality issues in light of another email that I received this afternoon annonymously from the UK State:

[Shantanu Panigrahi’s Blog] Please moderate: “Application to Classify Dr Shantanu Panigrahi as a Vexatious Litigant by the Indian High Commission” Shopping WordPress To 8 Dec at 12:05 AM

New comment waiting approval on Shantanu Panigrahi’s Blog “Cherie” commented on Application to Classify Dr Shantanu Panigrahi as a Vexatious Litigant by the Indian High Commission The following correspondence took place: Application to Classify Dr Shantanu Panigrahi as a Vexatious Litigant by the … This interesting case history was passed on to me for a desk review. Nothing here comprises legal advice and should be treated as fiction. “as far as my recollection serves me I have never renounced UK nationality” – Dr Shantanu Panigrahi Come on, that is ridiculous claim, a preposterous one, I presume from your writing that you have some legal training or qualification, so you must surely see this: If one renounces citizenship, which is not the same as nationality, one would recall doing this. It is a very major step in one’s life. Reading carefully some of the material here, I believe you did renounce UK citizenship, and I even have the date you did it, however much you may now regret it or repent. This blog provides the evidence and you might be estopped (the doctrine of promissory estoppel) from denying it. You cannot “unrenounce” it, or claim some Court has “ratified” or “confirmed” or “validated” it. No Court has authority to do so, as there is no legislative framework for unrenouncing a renunciation. As you appear not to have citizenship of any other country, by doing so you made yourself stateless. It is against international law for a state to make someone stateless, but here it was your own free will actions, however ill-advised, which did so. The state is innocent of such an action. There is now a dilemma. As a non-citizen without a visa or other permit to be in the UK, but whose presence in the UK came about lawfully, you exist in a lacuna. However, from the comments sections, it would seem to be likely your enemies have kept the Home Office fully appraised of your folly pardon me for being blunt, and predicament. Accordingly, it may be best to be prudent about travelling abroad, to avoid any unpleasant surprise upon return. You could re-apply for UK citizenship by naturalisation, because as I read them the law does not require the qualifying period of residence in the UK to be anything more than legal. So even your period here while you were a UK citizen can count. There is, however, a residual problem, and that is that your renunciation of UK citizenship took place some time ago, so it could be argued that you do not meet the requirements to have a recent period of continuous (legal) presence. You may claim an ECHR right to family life to stay as a spouse of a UK citizen. Such an application may be made on a protective basis too, and made while you are here, lawfully or otherwise. Another avenue open to you is to establish that, on the balance of likelihood, you were insane at the time of the purported renunciation. That would make the renunciation void, i.e. as if it never happened at all. However, there are drawbacks to claiming to be mad or have been mad, with possibly severe consequences. I take it these communications from Pakistan or India are bogus and I do not understand why you gave the trolls such oxygen. What next, an acknowledgement from Buganda? In any event, there is no automatic reversion of citizenship to that of birth, though India may be legally or morally compelled to assist. I do not know anything about Indian law. I am not sure who can best advise or assist you. My affiliated chambers is by code of conduct prevented from helping due to the usual potential conflict of interest. Would you like me to ask around to see who might wish to take up cudgels on your behalf, on a pro bono basis? With a Conservative government in place, and cutbacks to CABs, that may be the best option for you, as you claim to be indigent. I wish you would not keep trying to rile the authorities, though, when your own position is so critically self-weakened. . . Save your mischief for later would seem wise. Do you own a dog?

Re: Needy case of Dr Shaitanu L. Panigrahi Anonymous Remailer (austria) To 10 Dec 2017 at 13:41

To: _____ Solicitors Reply-To: Subject: Case of Dr Shaitanu L. Panigrahi References:

Dear Madam, SENT ON BEHALF OF SHAITANU L.PANIGRAHI, RESIDENT OF NORTH KENT My situation is a little bit complex. I had Indian citizenship by birth from 1957. I lost the same when I took British citizenship by naturalisation in 1982 and lived in UK thereafter making short trips to India and Switzerland where I kept most of my money. But then due to a severe prejudicial incident I renounced UK citizenship to the Home Office and applied for political asylum to India in 2014. GOI did not even care to acknowledge the same so in disgust in 2016 I applied for citizenship of Pakistan somewhat after this. I am a most wealthy person so this was not problematic to obtain, if you understand my meaning. But I am currently physically present in UK still holding a UK passport and I am concerned if it is still valid due to the UK citizenship renunciation. I did not comply with requirements after that, because I had changed my mind about the renunciation and Home Office are too inflexible to amend retrospectively. Also, when I now travel will I be subject to harassment in India over the matter of Pakistan citizenship which I would not disclose? When I return to UK could I be detained for travelling on cancelled UK passport and denied entry. This matter is not suitable for junior or lower-tier staff, kindly to refer it to your senior solicitor, preferably an experienced lady. I cannot pay more then £1,000/hour (+VAT) for legal advice but up to that amount I am flexible. Better number is 07967789619 in case the state tax authorities or other agents are bugging my landline 01634 379604. Payment to yourselves would be made by TT from Zurich. So many thanks for the future help you can render to me. pp Shaitanu L. Panigrahi

1. It doesn’t seem like there is any offer of legal assistance in this communication.

o Cherie has clearly given me lots of legal advice based on detailed desk analysis in this communication and I have accepted her arguments. She has now undertaken to secure pro bono legal representation for me for my Appeal at the Court of Appeal (see for an appropriate Court Order to validate my UK citizenship and nationality. There is to be no back tracking on this or the matter will be treated as being of criminal intent. For this eventuality Kent Police has been asked to trace Cherie to see who she is and where she operates from because I have heard nothing from her subsequently and also nothing on this application for pro bono legal representation:
