Lawyers call to allow ISIS fighters to return to Australia

From Nine To Noon, 9:24 am on 20 May 2015

There are efforts underway in Australia to allow the return of jihadist fighters who have changed their minds and want to come home. The lawyer for one of the men says his client knows he made a mistake by joining ISIS in Syria, and if he is allowed to return home, would be able to help deradicalise other young people and provide intelligence on ISIS recruiting. Stephen Kenny agrees - he is the lawyer for Australian, David Hicks, who was imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay on terrorism charges.
