Terror suspects would be stripped of their British citizenship and made ‘stateless’ under plans drawn up by Theresa May. The Home Secretary wants to find a way around international rules which mean someone cannot be left without citizenship of any country.

The move comes as she faces fresh pressure over the disappearance of suspects placed under terrorism prevention and investigation measures.

Fugitive Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed, who was subject to a TPIM, was last seen fleeing a London mosque in a burka ten days ago.

Labour’s Yvette Cooper has written to May urging her to re-introduce powers previously available under control orders, to forcibly move a suspect across the country.

Mohamed was relocated to Ipswich, in Suffolk, when he was subject to a control order but returned to London when the restriction was lifted.

However, as part of wider reforms May reportedly wants to be able to remove terror suspects from Britain altogether by removing their British citizenship.

At least 20 terror suspects have had their British passports torn up on national security grounds to stop them entering the country, it emerged today.
