Shamima Begum will not be allowed to return to the UK to challenge being stripped of her citizenship until the country's supreme court has made a ruling on a decision to let her back into the country.
Lawyers for the UK government were granted leave to appeal to the highest court in the land and challenge an earlier ruling that allowed Begum to appear in person and argue against being stripped of her citizenship, reports the Daily Mail.
Three judges from UK's Appeal Court agreed there should be a stay on any movement until after the Supreme Court had made their ruling which is expected later this year.
Earlier in July, senior judges in a UK court had ruled that Shamima Begum should be allowed to return to the UK to challenge the deprivation of her British citizenship.
She was one of three east London schoolgirls who travelled to Syria to join the so-called Islamic State group (IS) - travelled to Syria in February 2015 and lived under IS rule for more than three years before she was found, nine months pregnant, in a Syrian refugee camp in February last year. The then UK home secretary Sajid Javid revoked her British citizenship on national security grounds later that month.
