Seeing my brother’s killer in ISIS imprisoned gave me the end | United Kingdom | News UK News

Mike Haines has revealed that Alexanda Kotey – dubbed along with three other terrorists “The Beatles” because of their British accents – showed no emotion when he pardoned her in a US court. Mike, 51, also told ITV’s Good Morning Britain that the trauma of executing David after he was taken hostage in Syria had effectively killed their parents.

He said: “My mother slowly gave up on life and she slowly passed out until she died.

“My dad…within 48 hours of me telling my parents that David was gone, his dementia got so bad…again it slowly faded away.”

Mike, who joined the families of other murdered hostages for Kotey’s sentencing in Alexandria, Virginia last week, said: “I expected to feel anger, I expected to feel hate . When I faced him, I had the grim satisfaction that he was in court and his rights were defended to the highest degree. It was a feeling of closure. »

Asked if he would have liked to see Kotey face capital punishment, Mike replied: “Absolutely no, sir, no – I wanted them to be brought to justice for their crimes.”

Cell leader Mohammed Emwazi, 27, was killed by a US drone attack in 2015 while El Shafee Elsheikh and Aine Davis were arrested and convicted.
