Ms Lane, mother of ‘Jihadi Jack’ has insisted her son would ‘not lie to her about having joined twisted terror cell ISIS’.
The pair insist they sent the 20-year-old money to buy a new pair of glasses.

However they were then reportedly arrested for supporting terrorism.

Jack Letts is suspected of being the first white Briton to join the delusional cult.

He left his home in Oxford to head for Syria.

His parents Sally Lane and John Letts however have long claimed their son is innocent.

The south-east counter-terrorism unit said: “We can confirm a 55-year-old man and a 53-year-old woman, from Oxford, were arrested on suspicion of sending money to Syria which could be used for terrorism purposes… and were bailed until 17 February.”

But Mr Letts insisted: “We don’t know exactly where he is. If you know he’s in danger or can’t see straight, what parent isn’t going to try get their child a pair of glasses if he can’t see straight?
“I’m furious really. I’m very upset. I think it’s crazy that we can’t send a penny to our ill son to help him get out or to help him in any way because we’ll be seen as supporting terrorism.”

He added: “Any parent’s going to act the way we have and feel the way we do. You wouldn’t be a parent if you didn’t try to protect your child.”


Ms Lane added: “It’s the worst feeling in the world. You feel completely helpless. Your child is out there. They have no support. They’re still reliant on you.

“He’s sending desperate messages to us saying it’s cold or he doesn’t have food or he can’t see.

“We know that legally we’re not allowed to help him. I just don’t understand that.”

In a series of Facebook messages Jack wrote: “Its sort of awkward when the media thinks you’re ISIS and your not.

“Thinks you have a son and you dont. Thinks your married when your not.

“The formula with the media is simple: English guy became Muslim + went to the Middle East + followed Islam = ISIS + eats babies x evil.”
