  • Jack Letts – dubbed Jihadi Jack – has been stripped of his British citizenship

The Muslim convert dubbed Jihadi Jack who travelled to Syria to join the Islamic State terror group has been stripped of his British citizenship, it has been reported.

According to the Mail on Sunday, Jack - who is a dual UK-Canadian national - has had his British citizenship revoked, a move which was one of the last actions of Theresa May's government.

He has begged to be allowed to return to the United Kingdom, insisting he had "no intention" of killing Britons, after he was captured by Kurdish forces in 2017.

While the Home Office said it did not comment on individual cases, a spokesman added: "Decisions on depriving a dual national of citizenship are based on substantial advice from officials, lawyers and the intelligence agencies and all available information".

The decision means his fate is now the responsibility of Canada, as he previously held dual United Kingdom and Canadian citizenship.

He said: "I know I was definitely an enemy of Britain".

After being pressed on why he left the United Kingdom to join the jihadist group, he said: "I thought I was leaving something behind and going to something better".

So it's not surprising that the league would prefer to simply ignore the corner into which it painted itself. Reid paused for a second or two before ending his thought with this: "It's kind of despicable".

Speaking to ITV, he said: "I'm not going to say I'm innocent". "I deserve what comes to me. But I just want it to be. appropriate. not just haphazard, freestyle punishment in Syria".

John said: "You never give up on your child, well I'm not going to, other people might have done more easily and accept just because a newspaper says they're naughty, or that they're terrible, you just going to say "oh well that must be true"?"

His parents, John and Sally Lane were convicted in June this year of funding terrorism after sending their son 223 pounds.

The couple were sentenced to 15 months' imprisonment, suspended for 12 months, following an Old Bailey trial. Worldwide law prevents governments from making people 'stateless, ' so countries can only use the measure on those with two passports.

It comes after then-Home Secretary Sajid Javid stripped Shamima Begum of her United Kingdom citizenship earlier this year.

Ms Begum was one of three girls from Bethnal Green, east London, who left the United Kingdom aged just 15 in February 2015 and travelled to Syria to join Islamic State.

In an interview following their conviction, the parents said: "Jack is still a British citizen and we have pleaded with the government to help us to bring him to safety, even if that meant that he might be prosecuted in the UK".
