Jack Abraham Letts nicknamed as Jihadi Jack is a British-born Muslim convert, who is alleged to be a member of the terrorist group, ISIS. He was a dual Canadian-British nationality holder but now his British passport has been revoked by the UK Government. 

Jack Letts stripped of British citizenship

Jack Letts, who left his home in Oxfordshire to join Isis five years ago, has been stripped of his British citizenship while being held in a Syrian prison. The move sparked a diplomatic row as Canada – where Letts qualifies for a passport through his father – accused the UK government of “offloading its responsibilities”. The decision was one of the last made under Theresa May as prime minister and Sajid Javid as home secretary and is understood to have been endorsed by their respective successors, Boris Johnson, and Priti Patel. Letts, 24, who was given the name “Jihadi Jack” by parts of the UK media, has been imprisoned in northern Syria since 2017 and there has been uncertainty about his legal status. He has said he is “not innocent” but had hoped he would be allowed to face justice in Britain. His father, John Letts, said the decision was a “kick in the gut” and it was “disappointing how the British government is dealing with this issue, shirking responsibility and passing the buck onto the Canadians”. The UK’s decision was leaked to the Mail on Sunday and appeared to come as a surprise to Canada. Its government said in an official statement that it was “disappointed that the United Kingdom has taken this unilateral action to offload their responsibilities”. Jack Letts was raised in the UK and went to school in Oxfordshire. He converted to Islam at 16 and dropped out of school with mental health problems, before departing the country to join Isis. Letts’ parents were convicted in June of one charge of funding terrorism, for agreeing to send £223 to an intermediary in Lebanon in September 2015 – partly to pay for a pair of spectacles. The court held that they could not have been sure the money would not have been used to fund terrorist activities. A Home Office spokesman said the government did not routinely comment on individual cases but defended the citizenship policy. “This power is one way we can counter the terrorist threat posed by some of the most dangerous individuals and keep our country safe.”
