Prosecution is always the preferred option for tackling terrorists. But where this is not possible a range of other disruptions may be used. <br><br>These include disrupting travel by cancelling British passports on public interest grounds, dual nationals’ deprivation of British citizenship and exclusion from the UK to prevent their return, and interviews at the border as part of Counter Terrorist investigations. <br><br>We have also proscribed a number of terrorist groups active in the Syrian conflict, including ISIS. Membership or support for a proscribed organisation is a criminal offence.<br><br>Those who return from Syria are individually assessed and where further investigation is not warranted we can provide tailored counter-radicalisation interventions to support the returnee and dissuade them from travelling again or radicalising others.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
