Syrian president’s British-born wife Asma al-Assad faces calls to be stripped of her UK citizenship

Asma al-Assad, the Syrian president’s British-born wife, is facing calls to be stripped of her UK citizenship after she was accused of propping up his propaganda operation.

Mrs Assad, a former investment banker who married Assad in 2000, has at least three official social media accounts under her name, which are used to praise the Syrian regime’s “martyrs” and attack the West.

The first lady is followed by more than 500,000 followers on Instagram, Facebook and Telegram.

    British-born, and yet, not British.

    Funny how that works.

    • Must be a religious thing.

    They can revoke her citizenship when they get around to revoking the citizenship of all the family members of terrorist’s.

      They don’t even do that with terrorists nor deport them, much less their family members. She is no security threat while the terrorists are.

      Exactly! Why don’t they just leave her alone and concentrate on real threats to Britain. Of which there are many more than their security agencies can deal with already. Idiots!

    I can’t remember, and can’t be bothered to look to see if bills of attainder are permitted under English law.
