Muslim from High Wycombe disappears after being freed in Syria even though he’d already admitted to joining ISIS

A former grammar school pupil who joined Islamic State has been freed from detention in Syria, it was revealed yesterday.

Shabazz Suleman, 23, was handed over to a charity in Syria after a court ruled there was not enough evidence to sentence him. His whereabouts are now unknown.

Suleman, from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, was escaping IS territory in October 2017 when he was caught by the rebel Free Syrian Army. He was tried by a Syrian opposition-run court in the city of Jarablus, but despite admitting joining the terror group, he was found not guilty, an FSA spokesman said.
