Britiske jihadister som reiser til Syria risikerer å miste sitt britiske statsborgerskap.

Innenriksminister Theresa May har så langt fratatt 37 personer britisk statsborgerskap. Hun har mandat til dette dersom hun mener at deres tilstedeværelse i Storbritannia er “not conducive to the public good” eller hvis de har blitt tildelt statsborgerskap basert på falske premisser.

A former senior Foreign Office official said it was an “open secret” that British nationals fighting in the Syrian civil war were increasingly losing their citizenship.

He told the Bureau: “This [deprivation of citizenship] is happening. There are somewhere between 40 and 240 Brits in Syria, and we are probably not as quick as we should be to strip their citizenship.”
