The parents of convert and UK citizen Jack Letts “have been found guilty of funding terrorism,” the BBC says. “John Letts, 58, and Sally Lane, 57, from Oxford, sent their son £223 while he was in Syria despite concerns he had joined the Islamic State group.”
Letts has been detained in eastern Syria for 18 months. “Jack is still a British citizen and we have pleaded with the government to help us to bring him to safety, even if that meant he might be prosecuted in the UK….We are committed to help Jack return home,” the parents say.
They did not plead to help, or say anything about victims of ISIS.
