Fiji native denied citizenship after 13 years of military service7/22/2012
A brief fight with a colleague has apparently undone 13 years of exceptional military service in the eyes of the British government. Isimeli Baleiwai, born in Fiji and now married to a U.K. national and father of two children, left the British Army in June after serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, among other places. His application for citizenship has been denied and he is being ordered to leave the country by August 9 because a 2010 scuffle and subsequent criminal conviction has branded him as being not of good character, and therefore ineligible for citizenship. Normally, citizenship is granted to Commonwealth soldiers after five years of service. Baleiwai says a combination of drinking and post-traumatic stress due to combat contributed to the fight.

Does the British government's request seem unreasonable or fair?
