Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson has said he does not like the idea that Islamic State bride Shamima Begum “who turned her back on this country” will receive legal aid.
Shamima Begum, who joined the Islamic State group at the age of 15, is hoping to access legal aid to challenge a decision to strip her of UK citizenship.
The family of 14-year-old Molly Russell who took her own life after viewing disturbing material online have been refused legal aid for her inquest.
More than £1 million has been paid out for the legal fees of the men who stood trial over a £500 million cocaine haul seized off the coast of Aberdeen.
More than £84,000 in legal aid has been paid out to cover the cost of fees of the men involved in the HMP Grampian riot case.
