A seven-year-old Ghanaian father who lied about entering Australia before marrying two Australian women and sexually abusing a child has started out of the country.
The man’s real name and date of birth are not known, but he is known as Oko Mensah or Nii Odai Frank Quaye and may be 53.
The man, from western Sydney, is currently serving a six-year prison sentence after committing the aggravated sexual assault of a minor.
His appeal against the decision to withdraw his citizenship was rejected this week by the administrative court of appeal.

He had argued that he was forced to lie because of death threats to himself and his children.
“The applicant’s migration and citizenship offenses are serious,” says senior AAT member Adria Poljak The Daily Telegraph.
“There is a lot of interest in deterring others in the community from committing similar offenses. Consequently, it is contrary to the public interest that the applicant remains an Australian citizen. ”
The tribunal said the man’s lies began in 2002 when he met Judith Anne Jullen while on vacation in Ghana.
He informed the authorities that he had children when he arrived in Perth in 2003 with a visa for his husbands.
He and Mrs. Jullen’s marriage did not last a month and his visa was canceled in April 2004, but he tried to stay illegal until he was caught with immigration officers and deported in May.
Mensah then met his next wife Anita Jean Baines, another Australian citizen, by telephone while he was back in Ghana.
It is not known how they were introduced, but the tribunal heard that Mrs. Baines provided him with financial support before they met.
On December 1, 2004, Mrs. Baines and her daughter visited him in Ghana and just over two weeks later they were married.
Once a three-year visa ban had expired after Mensah’s attempt to stay, he returned to the country with another spouse’s visa.
In 2011, after he became a citizen, his seven children arrived in the country.
Mensah and Mrs. Baines broke up in February 2014 and he was convicted of the sexual assault and sent to prison in April 2016.
Despite the fact that his children spoke on his behalf and the claims that his life would be in danger if he returned to Ghana, his citizenship was withdrawn by the tribunal and claimed no evidence of this.
The man appeared this week before the administrative appeal to maintain his citizenship
