A schoolgirl “fully radicalised” by Isis propaganda must be taken away from her “deceitful parents” and household full of terrorist propaganda, the High Court has ruled.
The Family Division judge, Mr Justice Hayden, said the “intelligent, educated, ambitious” 16-year-old from east London was suffering “psychological and emotional harm”.
The girl, who can only be referred to as “B”, has already attempted to travel to Syria to become a “jihadi bride”. After B was removed from a flight to Turkey in December 2014 and made a ward of court, Mr Justice Hayden said her parents had appeared to co-operate with police and social workers to stop her and her siblings accessing online terrorist propaganda. But when counter-terrorism officers searched the family home in June, they found “a plethora of electronic devices” including those belonging to the father, containing Isis material.
