Javid’s judgement has had tragic consequences

by Steve Beasant on 10 March, 2019

Responding to the reports that the baby son of Shamima Begum has died, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs Spokesperson Ed Davey said:

“The news that a little baby has died will touch the vast majority of people’s hearts – regardless of the crimes of his mother.

“Many of us feared this tragic outcome when the Home Secretary washed his hands of Britain’s responsibility for a British citizen and a British baby.

“The Home Secretary’s actions were highly questionable on legal grounds anyway – and his pathetic attempt to claim there was a security risk only undermined his case further.

“If the courts eventually show he has acted illegally in making a British citizen stateless, we will remember this baby in holding him to account.”
