UK can’t just ‘jail jihadis’
DEFENCE Secretary Ben Wallace has said it may not be possible to convict Islamic State fighters and their families who fled Britain for Syria – even if they were returned to the UK.
Speaking at a fringe event, he said: “I can’t just swoop into a country and grab someone.
“We don’t have an extradition treaty with the Syrian regime.
“Even if we did, you might not be able to convict them – and then let’s see how many people want jihadis to live next door to them.”
