A lady who misplaced her British citizenship after becoming a member of the Islamic State group stated Wednesday she could be ready to return to face terror costs so she will show her innocence.
Shamima Begum was 15 when she travelled from her house in London in 2015 with two faculty pals to Syria, the place she married an IS fighter and had three youngsters.
Dubbed “IS bride”, she was stripped of her British citizenship after a right-wing media outrage when she was tracked down by reporters to a displacement camp in 2019 and defended the jihadists.
The Supreme Court earlier this 12 months rejected her permission on public security grounds to return to Britain to problem the federal government’s resolution.
But she has denied being instantly concerned within the preparation of acts of terror.
“I am willing to go to court and face the people who made these claims and refute these claims because I know I did nothing in IS but be a mother and a wife,” she stated.
“These claims are being made to make me look worse because the government do not have anything on me. There is no evidence because nothing ever happened,” she advised ITV.
Begum, now 22, stated the one crime she had dedicated was “being dumb enough to join IS”, and requested for forgiveness from all those that had misplaced family members to the extremists.
“I am so sorry if I ever offended anyone by coming here, if I ever offended anyone by the things I said,” Begum, carrying a baseball cap and vest high, stated from Syria.
Lawyers for Begum, whose father is Bangladeshi, have accused Britain of racism in its therapy of her, accusing the federal government of constructing her a scapegoat.
They have stated she was “a child trafficked to and remaining in Syria for the purposes of sexual exploitation and forced marriage” and the federal government’s actions leaves her stateless.
Bangladesh’s international minister has stated he won’t contemplate granting her citizenship.
Some 900 individuals are estimated to have travelled from Britain to Syria and Iraq to affix IS, making a authorized headache for the UK authorities now the battle is over.
About 150 are believed to have been stripped of their citizenship.
Begum, whose three youngsters conceived after her arrival in Syria all died, was first seen in 2019 carrying a black hijab and stated she didn’t remorse travelling to Syria.
But she has since been seen in Western clothes and expressed regret for her actions, and sympathy for IS victims.
