We recognise that the situation in northern Syria is fragile and complex. We are continuing to work closely with international partners and partners in the region to address issues associated with foreign terrorist fighters. It would not be appropriate to comment further on the monitoring of UK-linked individuals in detention in northern Syria.
The Government’s position remains that those who have fought for or supported Daesh should, wherever possible, face justice for their crimes in the most appropriate jurisdiction, which will often be in the region where their offences have been committed. Any decision in relation to the continued detention, transfer or prosecution of detainees is ultimately a matter for authorities under whose jurisdiction the individuals are detained or located.
