Bristish teenager Shamima Begum who joined the Islamic State has had her citizenship revoked by the UK government.
Shamima Begum (19), who ran away from London with two school friends in 2015, will now not be able to return to the UK, according to the letter obtained by ITV News.
Last week, Begum said that she expressed no regrets about joining the jihadists but said that two of her children were dead and that she was heavily pregnant.
She subsequently indicated her desire to return to the UK, following the birth of her baby boy.
The letter from the UK Home Office to Begum’s mother says: “Please find enclosed papers that relate to a decision taken by the Home Secretary, to deprive your daughter, Shamima Begum, of her British citizenship.In light of the circumstances of your daughter, the notice of the Home Secretary’s decision has been served of file today (19 February), and the order removing her British citizenship has subsequently been made.
The family’s lawyer Tasnime Akunjee responded in a statement: “Family are very disappointed with the Home Office’s intention to have an order made depriving Shamima of her citizenship. We are considering all legal avenues to challenge this decision.”
