P.S: This is the Thanks you get for raising the English level of the locals..

 

Ah, that's the rub! You (the OP) have  been demonstrably improving the level of English among the wrong (i.e. underprivileged) people and word has got out. Next time, make it easy on yourself and insist on only educating the scions of the elite.

You are so missing my point. Also using unrelated hospital story. Fact is op was done over and I so agree so unfair. Fact is now is on his way after nightmare experience. You suggest he waste even more time fighting this in court or whatever. Best to move on. Certainly op hard done by. Let it go. 

I did not suggest he waste time by taking the matter to court. As far as I know, appeals are conducted by senior officers, not courts. I asked a question about appeals in another thread. Someone replied - I think it was Ubonjoe. The answer was that an appeal could be made but the appellant would be detained (for up to 7 days) whilst the appeal was decided.  The OP has already been detained, I was therefore suggesting it might be worth his while to appeal.

 

Having paid a lot of money for an air ticket, if I was refused entry for no good reason I would certainly appeal. I'd be prepared to be detained for 7 days but I really don't think that would be necessary.  I'd like to think that if there was nothing wrong with my entry, a more senior officer would decide against detention and allow entry.

Somebody posted a link to the form TM.11 to be used for an appeal, which according to the indication on the form must be submitted to the Prime Minister and the Minister of Interior.

On the contrary, if someone gave 3 years of his life teaching English legally here, then he should be welcomed and not get kicked in his face.

Yes, sounds reasonably to me, under normal circumstances. But we don't know the full story since the beginning, when he first arrived.

 

Immigration officers will be very aware of anyone working in the past and now visiting as a "tourist".
