Mother’s fair trial ap­peal over IS Brits

Irish Sunday Mirror - - STYLE ON SUNDAY -

THE mother of a US jour­nal­ist killed by IS wants cap­tured Bri­tish ji­hadis linked to his death to stand trial and to be kept out of Guan­tanamo Bay.

Di­ane Fo­ley, whose son James was be­headed in 2014, said Alexanda Kotey, 33, and El Shafee El­sheikh, 28, part of a group of UK in­sur­gents known as The Bea­t­les, must be tried and, if con­victed, jailed for life.

She said: “We need to show them what real jus­tice looks like.”

Ms Fo­ley added she was “very against” send­ing the men to the US de­ten­tion camp at Guan­tanamo as it would “per­pet­u­ate the ha­tred”.
