ISIS Bride Shamima's UK Return Blocked By Court Ruling

‘ISIS bride’ Shamima Begum’s UK return bid undercut by court ruling

By Aaron Feis

ISIS bride” Shamima Begum’s bid to return home to the United Kingdom may have been dealt a serious blow by a recent ruling in a similar British court case, a report said Sunday.

Following a lengthy legal battle, the UK’s High Court has affirmed that the country was allowed to revoke the citizenship of two Bangladeshi-British men over suspected terror ties, despite arguments that the move would leave the men stateless, according to the Daily Mail.

The ruling could have repercussions for Begum, whose British citizenship was yanked earlier this year after she fled the UK at age 15 with two other girls in 2015 to join ISIS fighters in Syria.

In February, Begum — who was nine months pregnant at the time — said she’d had enough of ISIS and wanted to return home for the sake of her unborn child who has since died.
