A few thoughts on the decision to deprive #ShamimaBegum of her UK citizenship:

1. It is unlawful to deprive someone of their citizenship if this would render them stateless. Making someone stateless is denying them the right to have rights ( as Hannah Arendt put it.
2. Even if someone is entitled to another citizenship but does not possess it at the time of deprivation, they cannot be deprived of their citizenship. Therefore it cannot be argued that someone could apply for another nationality.
3. The UK government did not begin its deprivation policy today. The power has been increasingly used in recent years with 104 citizens deprived in 2017 alone. Those deprived include aid workers and a man who went abroad to support his wife who was giving birth.

In February 2015, Amira Abase (15*), #ShamimaBegum (16*) & Kadiza Sultana (15*), travelled to #Syria from UK via Turkey. They went to become "#ISIS brides". Till this day, I still don't know how they were not stopped or questioned at any port of exit/entry.

*At the time
The reason I say this, is that few weeks later after the girls left the UK, I was travelling back to the UK from Jordan, via Turkey. When I got to the UK, I was detained under #Schedule7 of the #Terrorism Act 2000.
