Profumo nephew Jamie Janson arrested returning to Britain after fighting in Syria

It can now be revealed that Mr Janson was arrested by police in Folkestone, Kent, on Tuesday, after travelling by coach… Jamie Janson was one of dozens of Westerners who allegedly volunteered to fight with the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in the terror group’s capital Raqqa. The great nephew of the disgraced 1960s war minister John Profumo has been arrested trying to get back into the country after travelling to Syria to “take action” againt Isil. The 42-year-old grandson of Lord Balfour subsequently found himself alongside the YPG in their struggle against Turkish troops in Afrin, a Kurdish enclave in northern Syria, earlier this year.
