British Graphic Designer and Wife Kept out of UK by the Home Office While Illegal Immigrants Turn His Home into a Cannabis Farm

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Republic of Ireland – What started out as wedded bliss for UK business owner, Michael Grieve and his wife, has turned into an unfathomable nightmare which is being perpetrated by government officials. Michael Grieve, father, graphic designer and British Citizen from the North East of England and his wife, (Athena Grieve), a South African citizen who moved to the UK have been married for more than two years and are stuck in the Republic of Ireland unable to return to England as a married couple to live, work and be with his daughter of a previous marriage.

The story takes a strange twist when we learn that both Grieve and his new wife have met all eligibility requirements to return to Britain as husband and wife, but the Home Office has done everything in its power to stop that from happening. Their applications have been rejected, subsequent appeals denied and the couple is being forced to fight for the right to be in Grieve’s own country together in court. To date, the couple has invested more than £3,000 into their Visa application to no avail and with no valid reasoning forthcoming for the refusal.

To make matters worse, Grieve, a UK business owner of 14 years and homeowner, has now lost his home to a combination of illegal immigration and criminal activities. When the couple moved to Ireland, Grieve let out his family home through a property management firm. This was to ensure that the home was properly taken care of and that Grieve would receive an income from the property.

Then, on 13th March 2018, a fire broke out at Grieve’s home and unbeknownst to him, the tenants placed there by the property management company had turned the home into a cannabis farm. Reckless misappropriation of the electrical supply to the house was the cause of the blaze. Those involved in the illegal activities were later identified as illegal Vietnamese immigrants, although they have yet to be apprehended. Police have estimated that the total value of just ONE harvest would have been worth over £250,000, with almost every room in the house having been cleared to make room for the crop, even including the one which used to be his baby daughter’s bedroom.

Michael has stated, “As a direct result of being unable to return to the UK for such a long time to reassemble our fractured family, we have accrued considerable debts just trying to keep our heads above water. I have missed many mortgage payments and my credit rating has been devastated, My once-successful business is now on the brink of ruin owing to my being unable to return to tend to the needs of my clients for far longer than they expected. Because of the events which have transpired at my home, my insurance company will not pay out to cover the damage owing to the short length of time the policy was in place before the fire happened and because of the criminal activity taking place. All in all, this sorry fiasco has so far cost us over 150,000 pounds, to say nothing of the stress and heartache of not being able to reunite with my daughter, who is now eight years old and is desperate for us to be a family again”

Subjected to unjustifiable timescales, miscommunication, lost documentation, maladministration, a deliberate communications blackout, spiteful attitudes towards bringing foreign family members into the UK, crass incompetence, arbitrary abuse of bureaucracy, splenetic misappropriation of the law and a complete disregard for their lives, feelings and family, the Grieve family places the blame for their current predicament solely on the Home Office. The couple firmly believes that the Home Office has violated both Article 8 – The Right to a Family Life and Article 12 – The right To Marry as set out in the Human Rights Act 1998 and that the immigration system in the UK and the legislation which governs it are rotten to the core and not fit for purpose.

There seems to be a growing concern amongst many that the UK’s immigration policy is failing. The alleged forced adherence to the EU’s immigration policies, a notion which was largely responsible for the conception of Brexit, have turned many against the idea of allowing immigrants a place in our country. However, the government has, for years, been implementing their own ideas about immigration which seem to have little to do with what is happening elsewhere in Europe. Theresa May’s intention to reduce net migration to tens of thousands has resulted in the now infamous and highly pernicious ‘Hostile Environment Policy’. Yet this policy, as seen in the case of Grieve and his wife, seems to be having no impact whatsoever on the issue of illegal immigrants but makes it clear that foreign nationals who should have every right to be in the UK with their loved ones, or to provide much-needed skills for the economy, are being targeted instead – often at huge personal cost.

This woefully misguided approach to immigration not only hurts the British people and our economy but also damages the image that the UK displays to the rest of the world. The UK has been built upon the efforts and contribution of immigrants for many decades and the significance of this should not be overlooked. Additionally, with Brexit looming and a deeply uncertain future ahead of us, can we really afford to be treating our own taxpaying citizens and business owners with such utter heartless contempt as extended towards Grieve and his family?
