Bring our boy home or we’ll sue the Foreign Office, say parents of ‘Jihadi Jack’

The parents of a middle-class Muslim convert from Oxford who claims he has been tortured by Kurdish militia plan to sue the Foreign Office in a bid to force the Government to bring their son home.

Jack Letts, nicknamed Jihadi Jack after he travelled to Islamic State-controlled Raqqa in Syria in 2014, was captured by Kurdish PYD forces after he escaped from IS.

This newspaper disclosed last week that nothing has been heard of Letts, 21, since July 8, when he sent his parents, John and Sally, anguished messages from his prison cell in Syria.
