Three British-Bangladeshis who ‘joined Isis in Syria’ win appeal against removal of UK citizenship


Three British-Bangladeshis stripped of their citizenship after they were said to have left the UK for Syria to join the Isis terror group have won an appeal.

Two women who were born in the UK, known only as C3 and C4, had their British citizenship revoked in November 2019 on the grounds that they were a threat to national security.

C7, a man born in Bangladesh who became a British citizen at birth, also had his British citizenship revoked in March 2020 on the basis that he had “aligned” with IS and was a threat to UK national security.

All three appealed against the removal of their British citizenship at the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC) – a specialist tribunal that hears challenges to decisions to remove someone’s British citizenship on national security grounds – in November.

In a ruling on Thursday, Mr Justice Chamberlain said that the removing of their citizenship had made them stateless.
