Veteran with PTSD who served in Afghanistan faces deportation to Jamaica

It seem's it's not his day today...

23 Jan 2019 —

Dear Supporter

Twane has been detained today at the Solihull reporting centre. This is a disgrace. Twane is complying with all Home Office requirements.

His lawyers Rogols have written to the Home Office to complain and call for his release and have also explaining that his MP. Preet Gill has made outstanding submissions directly for the Home Secretary and therefore his removal is not imminent and as he has not breached his reporting
conditions he should be released.

This is an even more worrying development because we know that there is a planned secret charter flight mass deportation to Jamaica soon. We know that a woman detained in Yarlswood has been issued papers for it. It is absolutely disgusting given the Windrush scandal and with campaigners calling on the Home Office to stop these secret deportation flights that they have gone ahead and organised one.

We are requesting that you take urgent actiin to complain, here are some things you can do.

Telephone the Home Office press office; 020 7035 3535.

Leader: Carol Scarr

Please take urgent action.

What eventually happened to him as a matter of interest?
 
The previously mentioned Kweku Adoboli complained about his deportation:



According to him the dastardly Home Office prevented him saying his final farewells -
I suspect the Home Office has a different version- that by acting as they did, they foiled
yet another attempt by supporters to disrupt a deportation

Deported to Ghana
I hate paywalls, should be banned under arrse rules
 
Six years for ABH? Under what law :???:

edit: to add, clearly this is either inaccurate or not the whole story

edit2: as suspected, garbage. S.18 wounding (aka GBH w/intent) , Stress disorder soldier appeals to PM over deportation,
And he is calling on the Home Office to consider his four years’ service for Queen and Country before booting him out.


5 years to get a passport. ie serve 4 years and 1 day and sign off every commonwealth knows this.
He also claiming two tours in four years...must have been a translator or A Them
 
You could say that if you actually knew the facts behind what happened and why it happened but you don't know them.
Had he only used a shovel you would be happy?

Many people managed 2 tours in 4 years.
I managed one on 2010 and another in 2012.
I was not, nor have I ever been, a translator or "them".
 
In Northern Ireland.... He's from Birmingham

To add, I think our messages past in flight, I dug up another article.
Deported to Brum? The poor b4stard
 
I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that everybody on this thread who's made negative comments about this guy obviously knows him as well as I do! This is this bit where I say that actually, I've never met the bloke and I'm pretty certain that none of you lot have either.

He did though join the infantry and do two operational tours and so for whatever reasons he hasn't managed to "sort out his personal admin" and according to some reports, there appear to be some compelling ones, I'm going to put aside any views I might have about his more recent bad conduct since he was discharged and sign this petition.

The country (that's all of us) does owe him a bit of a debt for him putting his life on the line for us and if anybody deserves a second chance, I'd say it's this guy!
Until he kills you?

Both were units I was posted to. I wasn't posted or attached specifically for the tours
I was supposed to receive a CMT who was doing back to back tours on H12.

One of my postings was to 4 regt RA.
They did H12 (2010) and 17 IIRC 2012/13

3 Medical Regiment did 12 and 17

1st battalion Scots guards did 7, 12 and 17



I can't find mention of which unit this lad was in (but then I haven't really looked that hard) all I was saying was that just claiming 2 tours in 4 years isn't in itself proof of lying.

Personally I'm happy he's been deported. not cos of his poor admin, but as he appears to be a violent convicted criminal and he's one we (in my opinion) don't need here and as we can get rid of him, I'm happy we have.
It sucks for his UK family, or are they better off without him?

I did three in three years but as NATO..mainly because every non UK or USA pretend solder pulled out at the last minute

He was a Sherwood plus ...no chance of doing two tours in 4 years. How long is inf training? seven months?
Two tours in three years?
 
Maybe he thought the money would be better as an Infatry soldier over someone with a Media Studies with black history looking at graduate prospects and further career development at the time in a specialist field... so it's not the first time he's done something demented
FOC
 
Some years ago, about 24 in fact, the Jamaicans had a Battalion of Infantry, based entirely on the British army standard, they sometimes did training in Belize hosted by the British Garrison there. In particular some came for Dog handling techniques. So why suddenly the anti British stance? Edited to add: The Jamaica Bn last mounted Guard at Buck House during 2007.
SEE 1994 we had Jamiian techs training. No CDT for them
 
You can’t ask to be sectioned. You can tip up to your GP and get referred or do something that get you detained under Sec136 of MHA by the police and then two doctors and a social worker or nurse will assess you to work it if you’re just being a silly twat or whether you are seriously mentally ill enough to be detained. If you agree to go into hospital then normally you won’t be detained.

However the system is very good at picking up those who aren’t detainable and not doing so.
Not where I work....
