Can you believe we were about to deport a guy from Fiji, who served with the British Army for nine years?
According to this article he failed to submit the required paperwork for him to remain in the U.K, so he was subsequently deemed an illegal
He joined the Army in 2001 and served for 9 years with the British Army, meaning he would have left the Army in 2010. This means it's taken 3+ years!
to catch up with this guy, why didn't they contact him after a couple of months and remind him? How much would that cost, compared to cost of
tracking him down, detaining him in a immigration camp and then the cost of the revue. 1 phone call, one visit to remind him.
To be detained and treated in the way he has, is also unbelievable. Detained In an immigration camp for 5 weeks. His freedoms removed for 5 weeks,
after serving in the forces we are told to admire and hold in great esteem by a Government so full of contempt for the armed services it's
embarrassing. What support is there in communities for returning servicemen? It's mainly charities, when it should be Government funded programmes
for these brave humans.
