Turner has lived in Switzerland for nearly two decades. In July, she married her boyfriend of 27 years, German music producer Erwin Bach (unclear if related to Johann Sebastian). Turner had taken the oath of Swiss nationality April 10. She’s fluent in German, the report said, and she declared that she no longer has any strong ties to the United States “except for family, and has no plans to reside in the United States in the future.”The key word in the embassy report apparently is the term “relinquishment.” That means, a knowledgeable source told us, that she did not “formally renounce her U.S. citizenship under 349(a)(5) Immigration and Nationality Act, but took Swiss citizenship with the intent to lose her U.S. citizenship.” As opposed to formal renunciation — a much more complex process, we were told — there are no “tax or other penalties for loss of citizenship in this fashion.”So “Proud Mary” will no longer be rolling on the Mississippi, but on the Aar?
Disgust over McCarthyism prompted this Missouri-born director to emigrate to Ireland in 1952. He renounced his U.S. citizenship in 1964
renounced his citizenship in 2006, saying the George W. Bush administration had created an Orwellian society similar to the one depicted in Gilliam’s 1985 movie “Brazil.”
