Speaking on LMFM today, the Independent Deputy said he had been talking to Lisa Smith's family and that she wants to come home to clear her name.

Deputy Fitzpatrick said: "In 2019 she was captured and detained by US forces. She has denied being a member of ISIS. She says she's not guilty."

He added: "She said she never owned a gun and she wants to come home to her country and come home to Dundalk and she is willing to testify and talk to anyone to clear her name."
