Children's Commissioner: NZ has a chance to support citizens in Suhayra Aden, kids

Suhayra Aden and her two children are coming back to New Zealand.

Aden was identified as an Islamic State terrorist by Turkey, when she was caught crossing the border from Syria in February.

She's the woman who had Australian-New Zealand dual citizenship, which Australia revoked.

Given there are two children involved with this case, Children's Commissioner Andrew Becroft told Kate Hawkesby we have a duty to stand up and help New Zealand citizens.

“There are children who are New Zealand citizens who have nowhere to go, I think this is a chance to stand up and support them.”
