A British mother and former Pizza Hut worker who left to join Islamic State has urged the UK to let her return from Syria with her daughters aged seven, nine and 12.
Nicole Jack, of Shepherd’s Bush, West London, and her children are being detained at Camp Roj where relatives of people suspected of belonging to Isis are held.
Ms Jack, 34, is being held at the same camp as Isis bride Shamima Begum – a fellow Londoner who had her UK citizenship cancelled by Sajid Javid on security grounds in 2019 and will not be allowed back – but insisted she is not a security threat to Britain.
She told BBC News that her family were ‘out of sight, out of mind’ and must not be swept ‘under the carpet’ by Britain, adding: ‘I haven’t seen a beheading in my life.’
However, the Home Office pointed out to MailOnline today that ISIS ‘committed atrocious crimes including butchering and beheading innocent civilians’.
The mother left London with her husband and then four children to join Isis in Iraq in October 2015 having told her family she was going to Somalia to begin a new life.
She claimed her husband Hussein Ali threatened to break up the family up if she did not travel with him, but he then died the next year fighting for the militant group.
Ms Jack then married another foreign Isis recruit, Adil de Montrichard from Trinidad and Tobago, also known as Adil Roberts, and they moved to Syria in 2017.
She then became pregnant with triplets but is said to have miscarried the first child, before the second was stillborn and the third lived for only three weeks.
Six weeks later, Mr de Montrichard was in the garden with Ms Jack’s ten-year-old son Isaaq when they both died in a suspected coalition airstrike.
She told BBC News that she knew her son was now ‘in a better place’, but added: ‘Anything else can put us on the verge of a breakdown and this is what I can’t risk.’
Ms Jack was brought up a Christian but converted to Islam after meeting Mr Ali while they were both working in a Pizza Hut outlet in Hammersmith, West London.
She does not know if she still has British citizenship but will not let her children to go to the UK without her because they would ‘not be in a stable situation’.
In London, the children’s grandmother Charleen Jack Henry, a nurse, wants the three girls to return because it is ‘not fair’ for them to be ‘languishing in this place’.
Ms Henry additionally believes that Ms Jack, who also has Trinidadian nationality, should be allowed to return to the UK to ‘face the consequences’ in Britain.
