JIHADI’s bride Shamima Begum could be a terrorist threat upon her return to the UK, her own family lawyer admitted today.
Tasnine Akunjee said that “no one can be sure” if he could pose a terrorist threat or heal others upon his return to Britain.
He told ITV Good Morning Britain: “No one can be sure, including his family, that this will not happen – but this is pure speculation. ”
Akunjee also said she was “treated” and “trafficked” at the age of 15.
The lawyer insisted that she should return to the UK after she won a quick court ruling yesterday to be allowed to challenge her revoked British nationality.
He added that she cannot fight fairly for her British passport due to a “lack of technology” in the Syrian camp where she lives.
Akunjee said, “From the start, the situation is clear from what we all saw in 2015.
“She was a schoolgirl with a cohort of three other schoolgirls who all left the same school at the age of 15 and 16 and went under the noses of the security services in the United Kingdom and Turkey and joined an organization terrorist.
“It is by definition an individual treated who has been a victim of trafficking, by its very definition.
“And we know this because at the time, the Metropolitan Police chief, Bernard Hogan-Howe, and the chief of the fight against terrorism, who was Mark Rowley, both declared before Parliament that it were girls who had passed by and would be treated as victims if returned.
“So the evidence at the time, even by the police themselves, we accepted what their status was.” »

Lawyer Tasnine Akunjee
Macer Gifford, a former currency trader who traveled to Syria to fight IS, said she should be tried in Syria or Iraq.
He told GMB, “I don’t trust the British legal system to do it right.
“Only one in 10 jihadists who have returned to Britain finds themselves in court.
“My fear is that Shamima Begum will come back to the UK and be slapped on the wrist and she will be gone in two years.
“Why can’t they [ISIS members] to be tried in Syria and Iraq where they committed these crimes? “
This comes after Begum was photographed in her refugee camp after being told that she could return – but “she risks being arrested”.
The 20-year-old woman was filmed in Syria after she abandoned her Islamic dress and put on western clothes, including jeans, a shirt and a blue hat.
She can be seen walking away from the camera as she refused to speak to ITV News, who approached her at Camp Roj in the northern part of the war-torn country.
Begum, then 15, was one of three Bethnal Green daughters to leave Britain in 2015 to join ISIS.
Interior Minister Sajid Javid deprived her of her nationality for national security reasons last February after Times journalist Anthony Lloyd found her nine months pregnant in Syria .
RETURN TO THE UNITED KINGDOM
She was seen shortly after wearing a black Islamic dress and a burka in a refugee camp, her newborn baby having died.
Upon his return to Britain, Begum is likely to be arrested and questioned, before being tried on terrorism charges, reports the Mirror.
The bomb decision could now open the door for 150 “terrorists” – including other wives and IS fighters – to make similar bold offers to return to Britain.
And his brother-in-law and electrician Mohammed Rahman said last night that he was “trapped between a rock and a hard place.”
He said, “She’s part of my extended family. I will not try to cause dissension between me and my brother.
“I am very uncomfortable with the whole situation. I am between a rock and a hard place. I have my own opinions. I don’t want to offend anyone. ”
He added, “I am not very close to my brother’s wife – I met Shamima, but only for family functions. There is a big age difference between me and her anyway. That’s all.

“I have sympathy for his family. It is difficult for a family to lose a child, but it is as far as I will go.
“I only found out that she went to Syria for the news. I did not even know. They did not discuss it with me. You understand. ”
The judges said yesterday that Begum, who had left the age of 15, should be allowed to return to the UK to challenge the denial of his British citizenship.
It is a “big blow” for the government which revoked its citizenship last year – triggering an appeal which has cost taxpayers over £ 30,000 so far.
