Gardaí have also confirmed in recent weeks that their investigation into Ms Smith is continuing.

Assistant Garda Commissioner Michael O'Sullivan said Ms Smith was under investigation on suspicion of engaging in terrorist offences while in Syria.

"She has said herself that she does not pose a threat, that she does not hold radical views," he said.

The offence of membership of a terrorist group carries a maximum term of 10 years in prison.

Ms Smith had been held at the Ain Issa camp after being arrested by security forces, but escaped in recent weeks along with around 750 other people with links to the terror organisation.
