Judges rule girl who travelled to Syria can return to UK challenge citizenship removal

LONDON, July 16 (Reuters) - British judges on Thursday ruled that Shamima Begum, a London schoolgirl who travelled to Syria to join Islamic State, should be allowed to return to the UK to challenge the removal of her British citizenship.

“ I consider that Ms Begum’s claim for judicial review of the decision of SIAC (Special Immigration Appeals Commission)... succeeds,” Court of Appeal judge Julian Flaux wrote in a ruling. (Reporting by Guy Faulconbridge Editing by Alistair Smout)
