Former Met Police chief believes Shamima Begum desrves fair trail

Former Metropolitan Police Chief Superintendent Dal Babu believes Shamima Begum should be allowed to return to the UK to challenge the deprivation of her British citizenship and sees the decision as right.

Ms Begum – one of three east London schoolgirls who travelled to Syria to join the so-called Islamic State group (IS) – travelled to Syria in February 2015 and lived under IS rule for more than three years before she was found, nine months pregnant, in a Syrian refugee camp in February last year.
