Stop the deportation of an Ex-British army soldier
Petition Background (Preamble):
While simply defending himself, he injured two fellow soldiers and as a result was imprisoned after, what he considers an unfair trial.
Marika wished to plead not guilty and acted in self defence but was finally convinced by the lawyer to plead guilty in order to stay in the army.
The result was a prison sentence of 16 months (serving 8 months) and dismissal from the army.
This means he will most probably be deported back to Fiji, a country undergoing a military coup.
His life and army career have been destroyed. A trivial bar fight coupled with lies appear to be enough to dismiss a loyal soldier.
Someone who is willing to die for this country should be treated with dignity and respect and not with deportation.
