Hundreds of thousands spent on lawyers for quartet linked to ‘Jihadi John’ cell

All of them are in Syria/Iraq or thereabouts…

Despite being under a control order, Magag vanished after getting into a taxi near a London railway station on Boxing Day 2012. Mohamed fled the country in November 2013 after slipping out of a west London mosque disguised in a burka, while CF left last November, hiding in the back of a lorry at Dover.

The Telegraph can now reveal that Mohamed, Magag and CF were still able to claim legal aid to sue the Government because their cases against the restriction orders had been launched before they fled Britain.

We can also reveal that a fourth man, referred to for legal reasons as K2, was granted legal aid to sue the Home Secretary, Theresa May, over her decision to exclude him from the UK after he had travelled to Somalia in 2009.
