British Nationality for Sam Cataki (and fellow Fijian soldiers)

This petition had 44,841 supporters

A FIJIAN father of two who served in the British Army for 12 years lost his job yesterday after being refused a citizenship visa by the Home Office - putting his family life in Pembrokeshire at risk.

Sam Cataki, who was based at Brawdy in 2007 and set up home in Neyland in 2012, has been told he can no longer work in the UK legally despite having lived and worked here since being recruited by the army age 20.

The community in Neyland, including his rugby team mates, is rallying in support of Sam and his wife Seini, who works at a nearby nursing home, and their two children Mesake, 5, and Jared, 1, calling on the Home Office to grant his visa

Sam has worked for Milford Haven Port Authority as a search team operative at Pembroke Dock port since November 2014 and said they have been as supportive as they could be throughout the recent troubles but had to “terminate his contract” when he was declared not legal to work

Please right this injustice so that Sam can continue to work and provide for his family and allow them to continue to live in the community they now call home
