Five teenage girls from Tower Hamlets, London, barred from travelling

Five teenage girls who showed ‘an interest’ in travelling to Syria have been barred by a High Court judge from travelling abroad.

Mr Justice Hayden today made the two 15-year-olds and three 16-year-olds wards of court – a move which prevents them from leaving the jurisdiction of England and Wales.

He made the ruling at a hearing at the High Court after Tower Hamlets local authority raised concerns.

    When they realise life in Syria sucks and that not even Mummy and Daddy can restore their passports, they’ll get the message.

    Present them with the pointed question: Do you wish to renounce your citizenship in the U.K.?

    If they answer yes then this ends the inquiry about whether they can leave or not. Unless the authorities want to charge them with a crime that carries a penalty of jail time.
