Canada to repatriate British-born ‘Jihadi Jack’ along with 22 others held in Syria

Canada’s Government has been ordered to repatriate twenty-three Canadian citizens being held in Islamic state Camps in Syria, including British –born Muslim Convert Mr. Jack Letts.

In a ruling last Friday, the Canadian Federal court said the Government  must bring home four Canadian men, after an agreement was reached earlier this week to repatriate six women and thirteen children, also being held in  Camps in Northeast Syria.

This follows a court case brought against the government by the detainees’ relatives, who argued that preventing them from returning to Canada would violate their constitutional rights.

Reports say Mr. Letts, who had held dual UK and Canadian citizenship, left his family home in Oxford in 2014 to allegedly fight with  IS as a teenager.
