IS bride loses citizenship British Supreme Court ruling can not return to appeal

Shamima Begum, a British woman known as the “Bride of Jihad,” went to Syria in 2015 to join the extremist group Islamic State (IS) and was stripped of her citizenship in 2019 by the British government on the grounds of threatening national security. The British government has stripped him of his citizenship for threatening national security. The British Supreme Court ruled on Friday (26) that she could not return Home to appeal the citizenship stripping decision.

The five judges of the Supreme Court unanimously made the ruling, said Supreme Court President Robert Reed, the right to a fair hearing, and does not override other considerations such as public safety. Prime Minister Johnson welcomed the court’s decision, stressing that the government has always ensured that national security is not compromised in any way.

Bejoum, who is currently in a camp controlled by armed men in northern Syria, intended to return to the country after she became pregnant in 2019, but the British regarded her as a national security threat and stripped her of her citizenship. She has since appealed, reiterating that she is not a threat and hopes to be reunited with her Family in London.
