A UK citizenship was granted to an ISIS supporter who entered Britain illegally, despite security services warning about the threat of terrorism.

Legal Ruling Allows ISIS Supporter to Stay in the UK

A Sudanese individual, identified only as ‘S3’ by law, has been permitted to reside in the UK despite being flagged by MI5 as an ISIS supporter and a potential threat to national security.

The decision from judges, based on human rights grounds, overlooks concerns raised by Security Services about the individual’s potential to incite extremism and violence within the UK.

MI5’s warning highlighted the individual’s involvement in disseminating ISIS propaganda, leading to the revocation of his UK passport in 2018 due to security risks.

Despite this, the individual managed to re-enter the UK unlawfully.

Security Concerns Clash with Human Rights Rulings

The court’s ruling, asserting that returning him to Sudan might lead to detainment and torture, contradicts the evidence that ‘S3’ initially entered the UK illegally 18 years ago.

The judiciary’s decision to grant him continued residence disregards MI5’s warnings of his extremist ideologies and the potential for radicalizing others.

This outcome, allowing him to live anonymously and freely, sparked criticism from MPs and terrorism experts, highlighting flaws in the system’s handling of security threats posed by illegal immigrants.

Judicial Decision Sparks Criticism and Concern

Critics, including former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith and terrorism expert Professor Anthony Glees, denounced the court’s decision as unacceptable.

Despite efforts by the Home Office to deport ‘S3’ since 2018, the Special Immigration Appeals Commission ruled against deportation, granting him lifelong anonymity.

This ruling permits the individual to reside in the UK without public awareness of his potential threat as a radicalized individual with ties to ISIS.

Legal History and Security Breach

The case history reveals ‘S3’ initially claimed asylum in the UK after illegally entering the country in 2005, citing fear of torture if sent back to Sudan.

Despite attempts by the Home Office to deport him, he was granted indefinite leave to remain in Britain in 2006 and later obtained British citizenship in 2015.

MI5 received intelligence during his stay in Sudan in 2016, indicating his involvement in disseminating ISIS propaganda.

His lawyers argued against the deprivation of UK citizenship, citing violations of human rights laws.

Concerns about Systemic Vulnerabilities

The ongoing legal battle raises concerns about the handling of individuals posing national security threats, as critics argue that security concerns should supersede individual human rights in such cases.

The lack of transparency regarding ‘S3’s’ potential danger to the public and the granting of lifelong anonymity have ignited controversy, with some experts and officials criticizing the judicial system’s handling of cases involving potential terror threats.

The detailed timeline provided by MI5 underscores ‘S3’s’ activities, from disseminating ISIS material to attempts to re-enter the UK using various passports.

Despite the ongoing debate and criticism, the Home Office declined to comment on the individual case, maintaining its policy of not publicly discussing specific instances.
