Shamima Begum cannot return to UK to fight for citizenship, supreme court rules

Guardian, 26 Feb 2021
Shamima Begum, who fled Britain as a schoolgirl to join Islamic State in Syria, lost her case before the supreme court on Friday. The president of the court, Lord Reed, said its judges had unanimously decided to rule in favour of the home secretary on all counts before it. That means the 21-year-old will not be able to re-enter the UK to fight her case in person and will not have her citizenship restored while she is being detained in Syria
