LONDON-born Isis bride Shamima Begum is married to convicted terrorist and extremist from Holland, Yago Riedijk.
The Jihadi bride, now 21, will not be allowed to return to the UK after losing a legal battle at The Supreme Court in February 2021.
Who is Yago Riedijk?
Riedijk, 29, left Arnhem, Holland, for Syria in October 2014.
Shamima Begum married the Dutchman, then 23, 10 days after landing in the war-torn country in 2015.
During an interview with The Times in 2019, Begum said the last time she saw her husband was when they fled the village of Baghuz, Isis’ final stronghold, at the beginning of February that year.
He surrendered to a group of fighters allied to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
Begum was taken to the al-Hawl refugee camp while Riedijk is being held in another camp.
It is understood that Reidijk is now behind bars in a Kurdish-run prison in Syria.
In footage exclusively obtained by The Sun in 2020, he revealed Begum received benefits from Isis and got paid twice as much as other jihadis.
When asked whether ISIS were paying Shamima when he was in jail, he said: “Yes, my friend was getting my wage. Luckily they did give that to her.”
At the time, he was asked what message he would send to his wife from behind bars.
He said: “Stay strong, even though it’s very difficult all the things we’ve been through.
“I’d tell her to make use of your time, do whatever you can and learn whatever you can in order to build a future for yourself…for us.
“In terms of taking care of future children, in terms of being a future housewife.”
