None of the reasons I have given above affect my liability?
Absolutely it was of no value at old age, to follow courses and compete with young and able NZ students
When you say "earn more money" that was not the situation. We did not get any jobs though we applied for hundreds of jobs went for interviews never selected. Excuse for rejection most of the time was either you are over qualified or too old for beginners level jobs
For my wife who was an economist she followed 3 years degree in computer science.
we have a house with a huge debt. we paid 30,000 and got a loan of 420000 that we will have to pay from our tomb till I reach 90 years old if I ever live
According to you we have no sympathy for the injustice done to us for coming to nz based on the advice and the beautiful advertisements carried by nz immigration. My wife would have been a senior director in the ministry today had she stayed back like most of her colleagues who are enjoying all the perks in their old age. So those who pushed us to this predicament are going scot free. Mind you we were not refugees. We paid a big sum to a Lawyer from Manukau city who came to Colombo and through paper ads called for interested parties. We were not crooks who came to NZ for dole.
I have just prepared a letter with facts and figures to Minister to look at our case not as students who were born in NZ and knew the situation from ab initio. We could have stayed in NZ for the last 10 years without any job or under employed eating into the tax payers money. Instead we took the chance and came to Australia and started in the lowest level menial jobs to survive. Haven't we saved the nz tax payers more that three times the amount we owe, by leaving nz/. That alone is the just action we took on behalf of everyone's benefit. And shylock the Jew is punishing us.
And we have no any idea of coming to NZ to die. Better die in our land where we were born and save even the money that NZ tax got to pay for our coffin.,
Nor our child will be a burden to NZ tax system. Finally is there anything that will help us in someway based on the details I have given in a true exposure
Over the phone we brought this to the attention of the officers, collection, and they pay no heed to that and say that you took this loan. This is why we thought to bring this to the attention of the minister in charge. Do you have any idea who is the minister responsible.
Which one you think the most suitable person to read our grievances and injustice meted out on us. Do you see any discrepancy in our writing (English) This was one reason they highlighted that we were not able to secure jobs though we had sound qualifications and experience at highest level.
For your info my wife was the first in the batch to successfully complete the 3 year course and get credential yet not a single job application was successful.
You have answered many a question but not any of them will lead us to bring forward our predicament to a redeemer with magnanimity, is what is unfolding in our conversation. I can see that you are trying to enlighten me with some facts. That's good. and thank you for that. Probably, if I give you time to investigate our situation in a different perspective away from the normal absconder of student loan, would you be able to shed more light that we would be able to pursue?.
Ok. then out of the two politicians (ministers) you mentioned whom do you think the best person to communicate with.
Thank you. Will you be able to try and collect any information and pass on to me to try and see. Thank you and I am happy to let you go. Thank you once again. I think you have my email address and phone contact. XXXXX@XXXXXX.XXX 61-0432686354
