The Terrorist Jihadi Jack, born as Jack Abraham Letts..
Jihadi Jack is a British-born Muslim convert formerly of dual British-Canadian nationality, alleged to be a member of ISIL.
Jack Abraham Letts was born a Canadian Citizen through his father, John Letts, who is also a Canadian Citizen.
He also has British Citizenship (now revoked) through his mother, Sally Lane.
Jihadi Jack was born in the UK, in 1995 and converted to Islam at the age of 16.
In 2014 he moved to Syria and joined the jihadist terror group IS.
He was captured by Kurdish forces in Syria.
His opinion about the terror attacks in Europe (Paris, Brussels and Manchester), that were committed while he was in Syria, was, in his words: “To be honest, at the time I thought it was a good thing, why shouldn’t it happen to them?”.
British Citizenship removed
August 2019: Jihadi Jack has been stripped of his British citizenship, due to his connections with Terrorism.
He is one of more than 120 dual nationals who have been stripped of their British citizenship since 2016.
Funding Terrorism charges
His parents, John Letts and Sally Lane, were found guilty, at the Old Bailey, of funding terrorism by a court. They each received 15 months imprisonment, suspended for 12 months.
In early 2015, UK counter-terrorism detectives advised Jack Letts parents not to send him any cash, as it would go towards terrorism funding.
Later that year they sent the cash, against the instructions of the counter-terrorism detectives, to one of Jack Letts contacts in Lebanon.
Two further payments, later in the year, made by John Letts and Sally Lane, were blocked by the authorities.
