Jihadi’s Wife Who Turned Down Seven Council Houses Sues the Local Authority for not Rehousing Her When She Was Freed From Jail

  • The mother, who cannot be named, was freed from jail in September 2016
  • She lived in hotels and B&Bs with her sons, aged five and nine, for 16 months
  • Yet the woman, who is on benefits, rejected seven offers of a council home

A convicted jihadi wife has taken her local authority to court for breaching her human rights by not rehoming her – despite having turned down seven council houses.

The mother-of-two, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was freed from jail in September 2016.

She lived in hotels and B&Bs with her sons, aged five and nine, for 16 months at an enormous cost to the taxpayer before being moved to temporary accommodation in Brent, north London, The Sun reports.

In her High Court lawsuit, the woman maintained that the seven houses offered to her were not in the right location.

But Judge Jennifer Eady ruled her human rights were not violated. However, the woman was granted anonymity.

She complained in court that private landlords had refused her as a tenant because of her criminal record.

Yet, the woman – who is on benefits – turned down £5,000 from officials to pay for a deposit on a house, according to The Sun.

The woman’s husband fled the UK to become a jihadi fighter in 2013.

The following year, she was jailed for 28 months for a terrorist offence.

She was released in July 2015, but was jailed again after breaching her licence.

But she asked for a council house after she was let out of prison.

She turned down two one-bedroom houses in south London in 2016 because they were too small.

She also rejected four two-bedroom homes – in Dulwich, Kidderminster and in Great Wryley in Staffordshire – because they were too far away from her family.

After being moved into temporary accommodation, she rejected two more offers.

Selected comments:

Let me understand it. Connected to a known terrorist cell and you get offered council accommodation numerous times and sponge off the state at the tax payers like myself THEN claim “Human Rights”.

And what is her contribution to our society?

The most appalling – as well as dangerous – aspect of all this is that she was granted anonymity. How can it be in the public interest not to be told who these individuals are?

Wow..! There is a very big problem in this country.! A very big problem..

Does anyone still have any faith or respect for the politicians who have created this situation ??

They know this country is ridiculous, full of soft rules and regulations so they just walk all over it. These are the real issues !

Yet another example of Broken Britain.
