Kweku was born in Ghana, but left when he was four and has not been back since.
He went to school in England and studied at Nottingham University.
Under current British law, any foreign national sentenced to longer than four years in prison is automatically subject to being deported.
So Kweku is now fighting against being deported to Ghana…a country he barely remembers.
Having already paid the price for his crime, he now risks losing his friends, family, community, country and entire life, as he will never be allowed to enter the UK again.
He will also most likely be banned from all of Europe, North America, and other countries too.
Since his release, Kweku has been giving talks to students and business executives on banking and leadership reform so others can learn from his mistakes.
His unique insight could be seen as an important contribution to society.
However the Home Office stands firm, saying:
“Foreign nationals who abuse our hospitality by committing crimes in the UK should be in no doubt of our determination to deport them and we have removed more than 42,800 foreign offenders since 2010.”
But I can’t help but question…
Is he not more British than Ghanian?
Has he not had his punishment?
Should he be punished MORE than a British citizen?
Is deportation a double punishment?
