Terror suspects use human rights law in bid to get their passports back

Two terror suspects used Human Rights Law to launch a costly legal bid to get their passports returned so they could travel to Syria to fight with Islamic State.

A 19-year-old of Iraqi Kurd from the West Midlands took the Government to the Appeal Court in a failed attempt to force ministers to return his passport, which was seized from him after his elder brother travelled to Iraq to join the Isil terror group.

In the same case another man, aged 26, from London, who has links with fighters in Syria, also lost his bid to have his passport returned.
