Muslim-convert Jack — dubbed Jihadi Jack after he ran away to join ISIS in Syria aged 18 — claimed he was being brutally interrogated by Kurdish PYD officials who “said the questions came from England”.
Tayab Ali, a lawyer for the family, told the Mail On Sunday last night that they will sue the Foreign Office and file a complaint with PYD officials at their European HQ in Berlin.
They will claim that the British Government is allowing Jack to suffer “inhuman and degrading treatment” — and that UK agents are “complicit” in his torture.

The PYD, part of a wider pro-Western Kurdish militia force in the region, has insisted Jack’s human rights are being upheld.
Jack, who has been pictured in military fatigues in Raqqa, claims he never fought for ISIS and openly criticised them during his three years in the jihadi city.
The Foreign Office said it can do nothing while Jack is in Syria because there is no British consulate in the country.
