STOP THE SHAMEFUL DEPORTATION OF KENTISH TOWN'S STOLY JANKOVIC
As a signatory to the petition “Stop the Shameful Deportation of Kentish Town’s Stoly Jankovic” earlier this year, you will certainly be delighted to know that the Home Office confirmed yesterday that Stoly has been granted leave to remain in the UK, with permission to work. In 2019, he will become eligible to apply for indefinite leave to remain.
Thanks to the extraordinary efforts of his legal team, his MP Keir Starmer, and each and every one of you, justice has been done. To all of Stoly’s supporters locally, across the UK and even across the globe, this is the moment to say a huge THANK YOU and well done!
STOP PRESS: We have just had an update from Stoly's MP Keir Starmer, who has received written confirmation from Robert Goodwill, the immigration minister, that Stoly has been granted a 14-day stay of his deportation while he prepares his legal case.
CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU to all his supporters who have signed the petition so far.
This opportunity for Stoly to make his case is all thanks to you, and also to Keir Starmer, who has been working tirelessly and to great effect on his behalf. This is not the end of the road: there is still a difficult legal case ahead, and we will keep you posted to let you know how you can continue to support Stoly over the coming days and weeks.
But for now, this has been a good weekend's work - well done, and watch this space!
