London: UK's counter terrorism police have arrested the parents of a 20-year-old white British Muslim convert dubbed ‘Jihadi Jack’, for sending money to their son, who has reportedly joined ISIS.
South East Counter Terrorism Command said in a statement that it was aware of “recent reports in the media regarding a 20-year-old man from Oxford travelling to Syria and can confirm we are investigating.” “We can confirm a 55-year-old man and a 53-year-old woman, from Oxford, were arrested on suspicion of sending money to Syria which could be used for terrorism purposes and were bailed until February 17,” the statement said without identifying them.
Jack Letts, also known as Jihadi Jack, is accused of being the first white Briton to join ISIS. Meanwhile, his parents, John and Sally Letts denied allegations that their son had joined ISIS and said the money was for their son to buy a new pair of glasses.
