It seems very arbitrary and is most certainly an example of the UKBA being very discriminatory in their application of the Regulations. It's even flagrant that they'd accuse you of this without even having given you an opportunity for proving otherwise. I feel very sorry about this and wish that you would, for your sake and for everyone else's, pursue an appeal of this refusal. Fortunately, you have evidence which definitively contradicts and proves how incorrect their conclusion was.
Have you incurred any loss as a result of this? Employment or travel plans curtailed? You could launch a claim for compensation against the agency. I'd hate to think that this was simply a case of mistaken case (wrong letter to wrong individual), but it would be hard for them to demonstrate that they used an entire six months to conclude something prematurely and incorrectly.
We're all behind you on this one.
The report which lead to my refusal, the one stating that our wedding was a sham and that an interpretor was needed at our wedding was made on the 19th of June, the very day of the deadline for our application. It was clearly a rush, any logical person would never believe this report suddenly came about coincidently on the very day of the deadline
and to be filled with such lies, such fabricated lies is ridiculous and unacceptable! I will miss my flight due to this and I will most definitely take legal action to be re compensated. The point is this sort of discrimination is taking incompetence to a whole new level and the home office needs to be held accountable for what are blatant lies on our refusal letter.
No home office worker was at our wedding, and even if their was - the wedding was held on the 8th of December,the report would have certainly appeared anytime before the deadline day of the 19th of june
This is what I honestly believed happened, the MP got in touch with the home office after I urged them to because of our flights, and the home office needed to make a decision by that day so they erred on the side of caution as it is more likely to be a sham marriage than a genuine one but they needed to prove that so they fabricated the evidence. They probably thought if we are right we stopped someone cheating the system and if we are wrong they will appeal and no one will get hurt. Win win only in my case I miss the first holiday me and my wife planned which was supposed to be our honeymoon and we deserve to be properly compensated for that
When someone tries to cheat the system by misguiding the home office they are stopped from entering the country for a minimum of 10 years and in some cases face imprisonment, it will only be fair if the home office faced the same consequences of their underhanded tactics, just paying us back for the missed flights and hotel is not enough and we will go to the media if we have to get justice
