Al Bangura Will Remain in the UK

Finally, after a protracted, drawn out saga that stretched over the past couple of months, I’m glad to see that justice has been served and Watford midfielder Al Bangura will be allowed to remain in the UK permanently. Bangura won his appeal of an original ruling by the Home Office that was going to deport him back to his native Sierra Leone and now will be able to raise his young family without fear for his own life.

I wrote twice about this in mid-December on my own site and I don’t want to go over his whole life story again because by now, many of you have heard what has been going on, but suffice it to say that Bangura had an extremely difficult childhood and has gone through more in his life than many people twice his age. I’m just thrilled to see that the United Kingdom got it right this time by making this decision based on common sense and rationale rather than following the letter of the law. If they would’ve done that, Bangura would not have been granted a work permit and his days in England would’ve been over.

    this is absolutely the right result. it is unfortunate that certain agencies need to try to make a show out of limelight individuals, and i am pleased that there is now a precedent for success for the individual.

    This is good news indeed. I am thrilled for him and his family, and it was the only right decision to make.
