How can this happen? I thought they aren't allowed to leave a person stateless? Not that I'm disagreeing, I'm just wondering how they managed it.

Do you have a link for this? Can’t see anything online at the moment.

Not that I disagree with this, but I didn't think they were allowed to leave people stateless?

It says her family are going to appeal the decision

Isn’t this illegal under international law..?

Maybe she already had dual citizenship? I can't imagine the Home Office doing this without huge legal checks.

Bloody hell, she's a traumatised kid with a baby, I despair

They can strip someone of their citizenship if they have another citizenship or if they can easily get another citizenship.
My understanding is that her parents are fBengladesh so she would probably be able to get a citizenship from there (even if she has never had a passport from there before ).

This way she becomes Bengladesh issue and not the U.K. hmm

What about the little baby is he rendered stateless to?

She is an adult who is unrepentant about her actions.

Isn’t her husband Dutch? I imagine she could claim Dutch citizenship.

Btw there has been cases before where the HO argued that x person to get xxx. Itizenship so it was ok to strip them from British citizenship. It hasnt always been accepted by the courts and appeals have been won before.

I had thought this sort of thing happened when you defected to an enemy state and I was wondering why it hadn't been mentioned.

Really? This has HO dog whistling all over it.

PortiaCastis Tue 19-Feb-19 18:59:25

Why did they let all the others back, this doesn't make any sense.

ReaganSomerset Tue 19-Feb-19 18:59:49

@PortiaCastis I presume he'd be a citizen of his birth country.

Budsbegginingspringinsight Tue 19-Feb-19 19:00:15

Does this mean she's banned from entering the UK ever again...

How can we keep tabs on her.
