ISIS bride Shamima Begum (British woman who fled to Syria in 2015 to join a terrorist organization and quickly married one of the fighters) – lost her bid to return to the UK to fight to restore her citizenship on Friday because of a security risk.
A unanimous ruling by the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom overturned a ruling made by the Court of Appeal last year that concluded that Began must be allowed to return so that she can enjoy a fair appeal in this case.
According to Reuters, Supreme Court President Robert Reid said: “The right to a fair hearing does not outweigh all other considerations, such as public safety.”
He said: “If the vital public interest makes it impossible to try the case fairly, then the court will usually not try it.” He added that Began’s appeal should be suspended until she can do so without prejudice to the validity of the case. Effectively function. public.
“This is not a perfect solution, because it is not yet known how long it will take to achieve. However, for the current dilemma, there is no perfect solution.” He said.
The spokesperson, Prime Minister Boris Johnson, welcomed the ruling and added that the government’s top priority is to “maintain our national security.”
The 21-year-old British-born Begum took off with two other female students from Bethnal Green College in East London at the age of 15, and joined the terrorist organization.
Two weeks later, she married an ISIS fighter and lived in Raqqa, the capital of the self-proclaimed Caliphate. In 2019, Begum turned around in a refugee camp in Syria, where her three children were killed.
She told reporters that she wanted to return home, but the former Secretary of the Interior Sajid Javid deprived her of her citizenship a few months later, and her domestic intelligence agency believed she was a threat to her security.
He argued that she was Bangladeshi by blood and could go there.
Began is now in the Arroy refugee camp managed by the Kurdish authorities in Syria, where a UN human rights expert said here this month that the situation is “inhumane.”
ITV News filmed her walking around the camp while she was wearing sunglasses, jacket, T-shirt and leggings. She declined to comment on this store.
Human rights groups say the UK has a responsibility to repatriate Bergham and others in similar situations and prosecute them for any crimes they may have committed, rather than leaving them abroad.
“In Guantanamo and the like, abandoning them in a legal black hole is incompatible with British values and the interests of justice and security,” said Maya Foa, head of the campaign organization Reprieve Reuters.
