A ruling today found Shamima Begum should not be granted leave to enter the UK to her appeal against her British citizenship being removed.
The decision by the Supreme Court comes after Begum previously appealed the Home Office decision to remove her British citizenship.
The girl’s citizenship was removed when Begum was 15 and she and two other east London schoolgirls travelled to Syria to join Islamic State in February 2015.
The British government revoked her citizenship on national security grounds shortly after she was found, nine months pregnant, in a Syrian refugee camp in February 2019.
Begum, now 21, challenged the Home Office’s decision to remove her citizenship and applied to be allowed to return to the UK to pursue her appeal.
An earlier ruling by the Court of Appeal in July found, “the only way in which she can have a fair and effective appeal is to be permitted to come into the UK to pursue her appeal.”
The Home Office challenged that decision in the Supreme Court, arguing allowing her to return to the UK “would create significant national security risks” and expose the public to “an increased risk of terrorism.”
Announcing the decision, Lord Reed said: “The Supreme Court unanimously allows all of the Home Secretary’s appeals and dismisses Ms Begum’s cross-appeal.”
Begum is currently being held at the al-Roj refugee camp in Northern Syria.

Good, maybe it will discourage others from doing the same. It´s about time that the UK tightened the borders. Now we need some barbed wire and barricades on the south coast beaches lol.
