I think you should apply for reconsideration
Because the new character law says if you have been breach of immigration law for up to 10 years that your application is likely to be refused and this is more than 10 years
Am not an expert just an advise
Try to see a legal adviser
All the best
I sent off an appeal/reconsideration this Monday so I am not sure how long that will take. I filed in the 2 page form that was attached to the letter they sent. Will keep you posted via this thread.
