Jack Letts the Muslim convert dubbed"Jihadi Jack, has been stripped of his British citizenship it has been reported

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau came under pressure on Monday from the opposition Conservatives who warned against giving any assistance to Jack Letts - a dual citizen dubbed "Jihadi Jack" by the media - after Britain's decision to strip him of his British citizenship.

In an interview with Sky News, Jack Letts - who became known as Jihadi Jack - said he didn't want to live in a country governed by Boris Johnson.

The Canadian government expressed disappointment Sunday that the United Kingdom had moved to "off-load their responsibilities" by stripping Letts' British citizenship. His parents continue to insist that any interviews given by their son in prison are under duress. The 24-year-old admits joining ISIS was "the stupidest thing" he's ever done.

"I'm not surprised. I was expecting something like this, to be honest", he told ITV News this week.

The UK's Home Office, which refuses to comment on individual cases, said a decision to strip dual nationals of citizenship is "based on substantial advice from officials, lawyers and the intelligence agencies", adding that "This power is one way we can counter the terrorist threat posed by some of the most unsafe individuals and keep our country safe". Canada accuses Britain of "offloading" its responsibilities. I always thought Canada was a better country, I had this illusion.

"I don't know, I don't think he'll see this if I say anything anyway". Lane are Canadian citizens, the government can not prevent them from coming to Canada.

I think it would have been very bad to let them in". "A lot of people were saying that was my decision. On Monday, the president disputed the Fox News survey by citing "internal polls".

Even if it were possible for them to leave Syria, these suspected ISIS fighters would most likely be detained by authorities and face serious charges - possibly even death sentence - in neighbouring countries, Canadian officials say. "But it's still true". "We are unable to initiate any prosecution", he said. "I can't even speak to my mum so how can I speak to a lawyer?" In his letter, Letts wrote that the money was to pay "people smugglers,"which he described as his son's "only way out" of Syria".

"I never killed anyone though, and I've never taken anyone a slave".

But since his capture, he said he had "no intention" of killing Britons. I've never tortured anyone. "I'm just a person who made a stupid mistake".

Begum left her home in Bethnal Green with two friends aged just 15 in February 2015 to join Islamic State.

"I always expected Canada would help me, and they didn't", Jack Letts said in a video posted to the ITV News website Monday.

"Simply removing citizenship may please ministers, but it isn't justice in any sense. We have a duty to deal with these cases ourselves, in line with worldwide law".
