‘Jihadi Jack’ learns from ITV News he’s no longer a British citizen | ITV News

Jack Letts, known as “Jihadi Jack”, has learned he has been stripped of his British citizenship in an exclusive interview with ITV News – and admitted it comes as no surprise.

The detained Isis fighter, who held dual UK-Canadian citizenship, said he was expecting the British government’s decision and, after two-and-a-half years in a Kurdish prison, retains only faint hope of Canada taking him in.

Letts, 24, appeared lightly bearded in a white T-shirt and with scratches on his forehead, which the YPG forces holding him said were the result of mosquito bites.
