Nobody wants their families in the UK caught up in any acts of terrorsim from hatred, which is why the online pettion to ban all ISIS members from returning to the UK is getting so many signing.
Why do you believe she was never a Bangladeshi citizen? Alternatively, what makes you believe she has legally lost Bangladeshi citizenship?Obie wrote: ↑Fri Feb 22, 2019 8:46 pmThe case of Ms Begum seems extraordinary. Ms Begun is a personification of evil, every parents worst nightmare, but the action of Mr Javid cannot be justified. As distasteful as her conduct was, she does not deserve to be made exile and stateless, she is a British, she was born here, citizen under section 1(1)(a) when she was born in 1999.
Your link does not say that he was.
Mr Letts has condemned ISIS.
It does seem to be an evil Labour law. I was quite upset when I discovered my daughter had become a second-class citizen.Obie wrote: ↑Fri Feb 22, 2019 8:46 pmWhen one considers the windrush scandal, the burning of landing card, the detention of migrant, then the case of Ms Begun and then Mr Letts. It is clear that there is a problem with the system. This is not coincidence, there is a concerted effort to create this 2 tier citizenship based on race.
Well, Indian origin is not a threat. A British passport cancels Indian citizenship. Stripping a British citizenship from someone with with 'Overseas Citizenship of India' will automatically cancel his OCI unless there ia a third nationality involved, so OCI does not imperil British citizenship. I have a colleague of Pakistani origin who believes that renouncing Pakistani citizenship on behalf of children is a wise precaution. Some people are stuck with unrenounceable citizenships.
The law on British-Bangladeshi dual nationals
See alsoIn the case of UK citizens of Bangladeshi heritage, like Begum, Bangladeshi law states that they automatically have Bangladeshi citizenship on birth. They are dual nationals. However, if they do not make an active effort to retain that citizenship, it lapses when they reach the age of 21.
Such was the case with E3 and N3, two British citizens of Bangladeshi origin who found themselves deprived of their citizenship when they were abroad in Bangladesh and Turkey respectively. The Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC) ruled in E3 & N3 (Exclusion : Preliminary issue)  UKSIAC SC_146_2017 that as they had not sought to retain their Bangladeshi citizenship before they turned 21, it had automatically lapsed. As a result, the decision to deprive them of their UK citizenship had rendered them stateless and their appeals against deprivation were allowed.
In Shamima Begum’s case, my understanding is that she is British born and raised and has never been to Bangladesh. Nevertheless, it may be that as she is still under 21, her Bangladeshi citizenship technically remains intact. So she is not stateless by law. It does not matter if she does not hold a Bangladeshi passport, as holding a passport is distinct from the legal fact of citizenship.
Sajid Javid was no doubt aware of the ruling in E3 and N3. The bizarre result is that young people like Begum are more vulnerable to deprivation than mature adults aged over 21.
Whatever the strict legal position, it is virtually impossible for Begum to obtain evidence of her Bangladeshi citizenship or use a single benefit of citizenship in any way. She is in a refugee camp in a war zone. She has no consular access to the Bangladeshi authorities. For all intents and purposes, she is de facto stateless.
I added those links for references.
If you are a dual British national in a third country (that is, a country of which you are not a national), we will offer you our full support. You do not need to be travelling on your British passport.
What the British Government did is a disgraceful and deplorable act of cruelty on a young British child. They should be ashamed of themselves.
As far as I am aware, the child was Caucasian. Are you suggesting it was half 'Mongolian'? Mother looks very much a 'round-eye'. Or are you talking some foreign language?
