‘Jihadi Jack’ reportedly stripped of UK citizenship – ITV News

Jack Letts, also known as ‘Jihadi Jack’, has reportedly been stripped of his UK citizenship.

The 24-year-old, who holds dual nationality through his Canadian father John Letts and British mother Sally Lane left his Oxfordshire home in 2014 to allegedly fight with the so-called Islamic State in Syria.

The Home Office decision was first reported by the Mail On Sunday and then confirmed by ITV News sources.

ITV News understands the decision was signed off during the final days of the Theresa May administration, but the new Home Secretary, Priti Patel, had the option to overrule her predecessor.
