Index – Abroad – Women who joined the Islamic State six years ago cannot return to Britain

In 2015, when she was 15 years old, Shamima Begum traveled unaccompanied by her friend to Turkey, where they crossed into Syria and all three joined ISIS. One of his friends, Qadiza Sultana, was killed in an air strike, and the fate of the other, Amira Abbasi, is unknown.

Shamima appeared in a detention center run by Kurdish forces in Syria after the collapse of ISIS in February 2019. It was then revealed that he had married a Dutch jihadist. He had three children, but they all died early from malnutrition and other illnesses.

Sajid Javid, then UK Home Secretary, withdrew British citizenship in the same month from a 21-year-old woman born in London. Suppose Shamima holds Bangladeshi citizenship from her mother, so if she wants to leave Syria, go to the South Asian country.

Shamima challenged the decision of the Home Secretary, stating that he only holds British citizenship, meaning that he was, so he became stateless. The young woman, who is still being held in a detention camp near the town of Al-Roz in northeastern Syria, wanted to return her to Britain in an effort to legally regain her lost citizenship there.

Last summer, the London Court of Appeal upheld the woman’s case, allowing her to return to seek legal remedies in Interior Minister Against his decision. However, the briefcase immediately challenged that and took the case to the Supreme Court, which ultimately took place

He gave the truth to the ministry and forbade the return of Shamima.

The British Nationality Act 1981 allows for British citizenship to be revoked if the Home Secretary considers the move to be in the public interest. At the same time, the British government cannot deprive a person of statelessness under the international legal obligations signed by London, which means that British citizenship cannot be withdrawn from those who do not have another nationality – Notes a correspondent at the telegraph office in london.
