Shamima Begum cannot return to UK, Supreme Court rules

  • The fact that she left aged 15, makes me wonder how knowledgeable she was about what she was getting into. I don't understand if the was stripped of her only citizenship or if she was naturalized British. They waited until she was of age to start the stripping process and when she was 19 years old they did it.

    I understand the gut feeling about it and I agree with those, but from a legal standpoint, the rationale is not very clear. Is she blocked in a Syrian refugee camp because she wants to go back to the UK but cannot because she is no longer British? Or is she just asking to get back her citizenship but has no intention to return to the UK?


    Did she have a trial? Perhaps I joined the party too late, but there are several missing pieces here.
