Almost 400 British jihadis free to roam UK after return from fighting with ISIS in Syria as just ONE IN TEN prosecuted

There are currently around 400 Brits who have returned to the UK from the Middle East where they fled to fight for ISIS.

But just 40 of these have been prosecuted for “direct action they’ve carried out in Syria”.

Barrow and Furness MP John Woodcock, who had pressed for the figures, told the Commons: “So, only one tenth of people have been successfully prosecuted.
“That does not mean the others are innocent of terrorism charges, if they have been over to Iraq and Syria, if they have been aiding Daesh in whatever form and they are British citizens, they have been aiding enemies of the British state.”
