    Apologies if this has been asked before, but...

    IIRC, there were three of them, I think, that originally went out there. What happened to the other two?

    the only good terrorist is a dead terrorist. So with any luck Begums dilemma will be rendered mute.

    The point about dual citizenship was just that if a country allows it they can't really turn round and deny that person is a citizen when it doesn't suit them - in this case that would apply to both the UK and Bangladesh.

    See my post made last night with a quote from their citizenship law.
    As her father was given right to stay in Britain she cannot be given Bangladeshi citizenship, unless she applies for it.
    An article on the BBC website suggests she is automatically a Bangladeshi citizen until 21 when such citizenship lapses unless it is reapplied for. Who knows - one for the lawyers to argue over.
    The bit I quoted from Bangladeshi law contradicts that, and is no doubt their basis for saying that she isn't. As you say, one for the lawyers to squabble over.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    who cares if she is or isn't Bangladeshi. the good news is she isn't British. I couldn't care less if she lives or dies.

    I don't get the 'not been able to speak to her own lawyers' bit.
    It is known where she is, she is able to communicate regularly with the press, give off the record interviews, so why is she unable to speak with her lawyers?
    I'm sure she has access to a laptop / phone and Zoom or Googlemeets or something equivalent.

    You do realise where she is?
    As well as the physical constraints, she's also apparently been told she'd be murdered in the camp if she spoke to her legal reps.
    She was filmed walking around in normal clothes the other day and begging for forgiveness from the UK. Not sure your claims are true.
