Dad awaiting broken penis op distraught as wife and kid banned from visiting himJanuary 23, 2020
A husband is distraught as his beloved wife is being blocked from visiting him as he tries to recover from a broken penis.
Graham Bentley fears the Home Office suspects his wife Mariely Baez Dilone will attempt to stay in the UK illegally if her application is granted.
The 45-year-old desperately wants his 29-year-old wife and two-year-old daughter Annabella to be able to visit him as he recovers at home in Scotland from a nasty fractured urethra, Daily Record reports.
Graham has lived in the Cayman Islands for 22 years and his wife and child are citizens of the Dominican Republic.
But her plans to visit her sick husband as he waits for an operation in the UK and be by his side have been scuppered after immigration chiefs knocked back Mariely’s three-month visitor’s visa application.
Graham said: “I’m absolutely devastated. All I want is to see my wife and daughter. We are a family and should be allowed to be together.
“The Home Office are making out like my wife is going to attempt to stay in this country unlawfully, but that is not the case. She only wants to come here for a couple of months to be with me while I recover and for me to see my baby girl.
“I’m desperate. I have enough money to support the three of us and we will return home to the Cayman Islands as soon as possible.”
The dad of one, originally from Stonehouse, Lanarkshire, suffered the injury to his privates last October at work in the Cayman Islands.
The same month, he flew to Jamaica to try to secure a British passport for Annabella. While there he was hospitalised with a fractured and infected urethra, which developed into sepsis.
Construction company supervisor Graham had surgery and spent almost five weeks in the University Hospital of the West Indies in Kingston, before travelling home to Scotland on November 21.
He is awaiting an operation on his urethra and a skin graft on his groin.
Graham added: “I’m in agony. My wounds are still raw and I’m so uncomfortable.”
Graham and Mariely married in January last year. Annabella has a British passport but is too young to travel to the UK without Mariely, whose visitor’s visa application was rejected by the Home Office.
Graham added: “She poses no risk to this country and just wants to be with her husband and let her daughter see her daddy.”
A Home Office spokesman said: “All applications are considered on their individual merits, on the basis of the evidence available and in line with UK immigration rules.”
