first_imgShe claims she married a Dutch convert soon after arriving in IS-held territory. She was discovered, nine months pregnant, in a Syrian refugee camp in February last year.Her newborn baby died soon after she gave birth. Two of her other children also died under IS rule.Javid removed her British citizenship soon after amid an outcry led by right-wing media. He has said more than 100 people had been deprived of their British citizenship.Begum took legal action against the Home Office last year.Her lawyer, Tom Hickman, argued his client “is not considered a national of Bangladesh and was therefore rendered stateless” by the Home Office. The decision was unlawful as it breached the Home Office’s extraterritorial human rights policy by exposing Begum to “a real risk of death or inhuman or degrading treatment,” he argued.In the next stage of the process, the court will have to decide if the government had legitimate national security grounds to prevent her from returning to the UK.Topics : A British woman who traveled to Syria as a schoolgirl to join Islamic State on Friday lost the first round of her legal challenge against a decision to revoke her citizenship.The Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC) ruled that the government decision to strip 20-year-old Shamima Begum of her citizenship “did not make her stateless” as she was a citizen of Bangladesh by descent.”The appellant [Begum] was in that situation as a result of her own choices, and of the actions of others, but not because of anything the Secretary of State had done,” said judge Doron Blum referring to then-interior minister Sajid Javid. The judgment was made despite SIAC finding that Begum could not have “a fair and effective appeal” against the decision as she is currently in a Syrian refugee camp.Begum’s lawyer Daniel Furner said she would “immediately initiate an appeal” against the decision.”The logic of the decision will appear baffling, accepting as it does the key underlying factual assessments of extreme danger and extreme unfairness and yet declining to provide any legal remedy,” he said.Begum, then 15, was one of three schoolgirls from Bethnal Green in east London who left home to join the jihadist group on February 17, 2015. last_img read more

WBA boss Tony Pulis envious of strength in depth at former club Stoke’s disposal

first_img The Baggies boss has been impressed by the Potters and Mark Hughes’ squad building ahead of Saturday’s game at The Hawthorns. Pulis managed Stoke between 2002 and 2005, before returning 12 months later for a seven-year stay. Hughes succeeded him in 2013 and, having guided the Potters to ninth last term, has them 10th this season, just one point off the top six. “When you look at the three (forwards) they’re playing and then you look at the bench – (Mame Biram) Diouf’s not playing, (Peter) Crouch is not playing (Jonathan) Walters is not playing” Pulis told a press conference. “You go on and on and on. “They’ve got a real strong squad. They finished in the top 10 last year and have added to that. “They’ve put a strong squad together so we know it will be a tough game. “I look forward to it, hosting my former club – results have shown than this year there’s not a big a gap as their normally is.” The Baggies will assess Jonas Olsson and Victor Anichebe’s hamstring complaints while Salomon Rondon and James McClean serve the final game of their bans, meaning Saido Berahino could start after eight straight games as a substitute. Albion’s squad is thin without the quartet and Pulis wants to strengthen in a transfer window which he expects to be full of big spending at the top and bottom of the Barclays Premier League. “It’s as competitive as it’s ever been,” Pulis, who has long been trailing QPR’s Matty Phillips, said. “Everyone will be trying to strengthen in the window to finish in the top half where they want to be or to make sure they are outside of the bottom parts where it’s important for clubs.” West Brom boss Tony Pulis is envious of former club Stoke’s embarrassment of riches.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Steelers, Ben Roethlisberger still discussing ‘significant’ contract extension

admin no comments

first_img“It’s probably his last contract as an NFL player, so it’s significant. It’s significant for us,” Colbert said. “We’re in a different dynamic from a financial standpoint as far as the cap because we don’t have a couple of players with us before. So we have to make sure it all makes sense. It has to make sense for both sides, and we’re comfortable at some point we hope it does.”Roethlisberger, who turned 37 earlier this month, had 5,129 yards passing, 34 touchdowns and 16 interceptions last season while completing 67 percent of his passes. However, he set a career high in attempts and those 16 picks tied for the second-worst mark of his career. Pittsburgh is in no rush to re-sign Ben Roethlisberger.While speaking at the NFL owners meetings, Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert confirmed discussions with the veteran quarterback are “still ongoing” but acknowledged the prospective deal is a notable one.

He’ll have no agenda other than trying to win a Super Bowl. You can’t dictate what someone will say when they are with you and when they leave. But we feel very comfortable in knowing that Ben Roethlisberger is our quarterback and is our leader.”Ben is an unquestionable top quarterback in this league. He’s a Hall of Fame quarterback. He’s won Super Bowls. I know he’s comfortable with that, he’s comfortable with that. And we’re always going to support him in that role.”last_img read more
