Following a bizarre appeals court ruling, terrorist Shamima Begum who fled the U.K at the age of 15 has been given the right to return to fight her case.
According to reports, Begum won her appeal to fight said case while actually in the U.K. Initially, she was found last year holed up with her Jihadi husband in Syria, when the Home Office had declared her citizenship issue moot and that it had been terminated.
Begum is believed to be holed up inside Camp Roj in Northern Syria. Per the court ruling, the government has now been ordered to find a way to allow her to return to London to fight her case physically in court.
The Appeals Court meanwhile… here’s what they had to say.
Lord Justice Flaux – sitting with Lady Justice King and Lord Justice Singh – said: “Fairness and justice must, on the facts of this case, outweigh the national security concerns, so that the leave to enter appeals should be allowed.”
