British Muslim stripped of citizenship appeals to court

A Muslim convert who claims his British citizenship was removed because of alleged extremism has appealed to the Supreme Court.

The Vietnamese-born man, identified only as "B2", appealed to Britain's top court on Tuesday on the grounds that British interior minister’s decision to remove his citizenship breaches international law because it renders him “stateless”.

According to British security services, B2 was a threat to British security as he had received al-Qaeda terrorist training in Yemen.

In 2011, UK Home Secretary Theresa May revoked B2’s British nationality because it would be "conducive to the public good".

B2 was born in Vietnam and moved to the UK with his parents in 1989.

He converted to Islam at the age of 21 and is alleged to have become an Islamic extremist and to have traveled to an al-Qaeda base in Yemen in 2010.

The Supreme Court hearing is expected to take two days and a decision to be handed down on a later date.

The hearing comes ahead of British lawmakers debating plans to ban suspected British nationals from re-entering Britain when they are thought to have been involved in terrorism overseas.
