Petition Update the treason laws to deal with British terrorists

The treason laws have not been updated for years. We believe that joining ISIS, or any other terrorist organisation which is an enemy of our country, should be classed as an act of treason.

More details

It is time our laws were updated. British citizens who go abroad to fight for organisations which pose a threat to our security should be clearly and specifically included within the crime of treason.
