I'll be following the latest updates on Shamima Begum today The government's position is that although she has the legal right to come home, they will do nothing to help her get out of Syria

Anyone who returns from the conflict in Syria, Iraq or elsewhere can expect to be investigated by police to determine if they have committed criminal offences and to ensure that they do not pose a threat. We will do so with an open mind, based on evidence available.

Interesting, we've been seeing a trend of people prevented from travelling to Syria attempting terror attacks in the UK as well

Absolutely, they've been stripping everyone they can of British citizenship to dodge it. Latest excuse seems to be 'no consular services', so not making any effort to confirm who is in camps/detention and do anything about it

Shamima Begum is not the first British woman who has tried to come back to the U.K. with her kids. We’ve also had Tareena Shakil and Shukee Begum. The former was jailed for six years.

Not outlining my own view here but that certainly isn't how the courts have seen it. Children have been jailed for life for terror plots after being radicalised by Isis and family members And where will law draw line at this case? Age she went, or age she comes back?

True, and we know that some were given weapons training at home by their husbands, e.g. Khadijah Dare

Missed this in the main thread, but although women were not given weapons or explosives training by Isis as a rule, they were permitted to fight to defend the caliphate. But no indication Shamima Begum was involved
