Islamic State bride Shamima Begum’s appeal to restore UK citizenship to begin in London court | UK News

 

Shamima Begum’s appeal to revoke her British citizenship in order to join the Islamic State begins in a London court today.

She ran away from her home in London when she was 15 with two other girls in 2015, ending up in Syria and marrying a terrorist group fighter.
 

Mrs. Begum She was found pregnant in a Syrian prison in 2019 and her nationality was revoked for reasons of national security.

She was hired based on her attractiveness She claims to have been a victim of child trafficking Because it was smuggled into Syria by a Canadian spy.

The allegations were made in a book that said they were brought into the country by a double agent and his role was covered up by the police and the UK government.

Her appeal will be considered by the Special Immigration Appeals Committee and is expected to last five days.

Begum denied involvement in any terrorist activities while living in the former stronghold of the Islamic State group.

UK Supreme Court last year She was refused permission to return to the UK to contest the stripping of her nationality personally.

She is still imprisoned in a camp in northern Syria.

In 2019, she told Sky News that she was “Just a housewife for the four years.” She was with ISIS and claimed she “didn’t do anything dangerous” or encourage others to join.

Last year, in another interview with Sky, she said that He wanted to be tried in the UK She invited British officials for questioning in prison.

However, a series of Conservative home ministers have insisted she poses a potential risk and should not be allowed back into the UK.

“One of the main arguments would be that when former Home Minister Sajid Javid Shamima Begum stripped her citizenship and left her in Syria, he did not consider that she was a victim of trafficking,” her lawyer, Tasneem Akunji, said in an earlier statement.

“The UK has international obligations in terms of how we view a trafficked person and what guilt we assign to them for their actions,” added Mr Akunji.

Other girls who left for Syria with Mrs. Begum, Kadizah Sultana and Amira Abbasi are believed to have died.
