The UK Court of Appeal has upheld the decision to revoke the British citizenship of Shamima Begum, who left the UK to join ISIS in Syria at the age of 15. The court ruled that Begum’s right to a fair hearing did not outweigh the security concerns posed by her return to the UK. The judges also found that Begum was not made stateless by the decision, as she was entitled to Bangladeshi citizenship through her parents. However, the court did acknowledge the possibility that Begum may have been trafficked to Syria for the purposes of sexual exploitation. Amnesty International criticized the decision, arguing that the power to strip someone of their citizenship and exile them should not exist in the modern world. Begum’s mother-in-law has called for her to be allowed back into the UK to rebuild her life, while the Home Office has said that its priority is maintaining the safety and security of the UK.
