Gurkha with Victoria Cross is denied entry to the UK: UPDATE

VC HeroTul Bahadur Pun VC won the Victoria Cross fighting for Britain in the 3rd Battalion 6th Gurkha Rifles. However, the British Government has refused 84 year-old Mr Pun's application to settle in the UK, to seek urgently needed medical treatment, on the grounds that Mr Pun VC "failed to demonstrate strong ties with the UK".

45,000 Gurkhas have died fighting for Britain. 150,000 Gurkhas have been seriously wounded on battlefields defending our freedom. The Gurkhas have given 200 years loyal service to the British people. If there was a minute silence for every Gurkha wounded in World War II alone, we would have to stay silent for 2 weeks!

You can email words of support to: . All your emails will be put before the Immigration Judge considering Mr Pun VC's appeal.
