A family injured in the Manchester terror attack has slammed the legal aid plea of ISIS bride Shamima Begum.
Robert and Claire Dowson said they were “appalled” legal chiefs were considering paying out to help the jihadi come back to Britain.
The couple – and their four daughters were among the hundreds of people injured when Salman Abedi detonated a homemade bomb at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, May 2017.
Twenty two innocent people were killed that day and the Dowsons believe funding Begum is an insult to victims’ families.
Robert told the Daily Mail: “We are appalled that anyone would consider paying hundreds of thousands of pounds to aid the return of someone who supports the terrorist organisation behind it.”
“People try to excuse Shamima’s behavior by saying she was brainwashed, but so was Abedi, and my children know, from bitter experience, what terrible atrocities that could mean she is capable of.”
