The father of Jihadi John moved his family to Britain from their native Kuwait after being accused of collaborating with Saddam’s forces during Iraq’s invasion of the country, it was claimed yesterday.

Mr Emwazi father of Mohamad Emwazi or who is known Jihadi John now believed to be in hiding in Kuwait after his 26-year-old son Mohammed was last week identified as the masked ISIS butcher who has fronted horrific hostage execution videos.

Mr Emwazi, 51, said by a family friend to be a former Kuwaiti police officer, was a member of the ‘Bidoun’ group of stateless people denied citizenship by countries in the Persian Gulf.

Because he was originally from southern Iraq, he found his loyalties questioned after Saddam invaded Kuwait in 1990.

He and his family applied to become Kuwaiti citizens but were turned down after facing allegations that they collaborated with the Iraqi army during the seven-month occupation, Kuwait’s Al Qabas newspaper reported. 

Mr Emwazi then took his wife and his children, including Mohammed, to live in Britain in 1993. They settled in the north-west London suburbs of Maida Vale and Queens Park.

Last night it was revealed that Mohammed Emwazi worked as a top salesman for a Kuwaiti IT company aged 21. His former boss told the Guardian that he was ‘the best employee we ever had’.

His father is now understood to be in Kuwait with other members of the family. The Kuwaiti security services are said to be monitoring them around the clock.

They spoke to Mr Emwazi on Saturday night, Channel 4 News reported. Contacted by phone yesterday, he said in a troubled voice: ‘Yes, I am Mohammed’s father. 'I am sorry but I don’t want to talk to the media.’
