The South Australian community of Loxton has been left reeling after news that a former local high school student had been captured in Syria accused of joining Islamic State.
The Conservative Party’s South Australian Senate candidate Rikki Lambert said,”This captured, alleged jihadi should never be allowed back into Australia. He had no sound reason to be where he was in Syria anyway.”
“He appears to have made his bed with the now defeated ‘caliphate’, so he can lie in it. If he’s a dual citizen, his Australian citizenship should be revoked and, in any case, his passport and right of return must be revoked,” he continued.
“Whether its our prison system or community, we don’t need supporters and advocates of ISIS butchery and poison in the Riverland or anywhere else in our great nation,” Mr Lambert concluded.
