They were either directly involved or complicit in crimes against humanity. Let the locals handle it their own way. Possibly bring the children back and put them up for adoption. Canada always seems to try too hard to be Mr. Nice Guy amongst nations. Almost to the point of masochism.
Literally their own way of handling it has been putting her in a detention camp and trying to get her home country, Britain, to repatriate her and deal with her under its laws. Britain has refused. A number of other countries, including ours, are in the process of doing that with their respective citizens. In our case that’s on the strength of a court decision.
Obviously there can be significant challenges to prosecuting criminal offences, but that doesn’t abrogate a country’s responsibility to deal with its own citizens.
She's now actually stateless; she is technically entitled to Bangladeshi citizenship, but only held UK citizenship. Rendering someone stateless is supposed to be illegal under international law, and why would Bangladesh even consider giving her citizenship now anyway?
They should have brought her back and held her accountable IMHO under UK laws for joining ISIS. If citizens have obligations to the state, the state also has obligations to the citizens (as well as other countries for the actions of their citizens).
A 15 year old was basically traffiked outside the UK at the outset, so they shit the bed early on. Sure, it was stupid of her, but if she had actually killed someone in the UK, they would have punished her within the UK legal system.
I don't like it, and didn't like the Khadr payout either, but if the state doesn't live up to their obligations there needs to be consequences of some kind.
Interesting note on this one, although Great Britain is a state party to the 1961 UN Convention on the Reduction of Statessness, they signed with an express reservation that they can exempt themselves from the applicability of the convention in cases where a person has behave contrary to their loyalty to His Majesty. Pretty much a disloyalty to the. Action exemption that allows Britain to render individuals stateless notwithstanding the treaty they signed not to.
