THE Muslim convert dubbed Jihadi Jack has admitted he feels guilty after his parents were convicted of funding terrorism by sending him money in Syria.

Jack Letts said he is desperate to be reunited with his parents, who he has not seen since he travelled to the war-torn country in 2014 from his Oxford home when he was just a teenager.

The couple's conviction at the Old Bailey on Friday "doesn't really make much sense", Letts told Sky News in an interview from the prison in northern Syria where he is being held by Kurdish authorities accused of being a member of Islamic State.

He insisted British people are "my people" and added: "I've no intention of blowing them up, that's probably important."

Organic farmer John Letts, 58, and former Oxfam fundraising officer Sally Lane, 57, of Chilswell Road, Oxford, walked free from court after being given suspended sentences.

Oxford Mail:

The Old Bailey heard they ignored repeated warnings their son had joined Islamic State in Syria and sent - or tried to send - a total of £1,723 for him despite being told by police three times not to.

They were found guilty of one charge of funding terrorism in September 2015, but cleared of the same charge in December 2015. A third charge relating to an attempt to send money in January 2016 was ordered to lie on file after jurors could not agree.

Jack Letts told Sky News: "I feel guilty for what I've put them through."

He added: "It's two 60-year-old atheists being convicted for Islamic terrorism, it doesn't really make much sense."

He said his parents had sent him money to leave Syria and that he had used some of it to buy basic essentials including glasses.

He said: "I really want to see them more than I've ever wanted to see them in my whole life."
