Britain’s Border Agency Challenges Lift on Snoop Ban
After banning Snoop Dogg from entering the U.K. over his involvement in a 2006 brawl at London’s Heathrow Airport, a British Court in January granted the rapper permission to enter the country. The Long Beach MC announced the decision during an interview with CNN’s Larry King in February. But now, according to the Press Association, the U.K. Border Agency is challenging that decision in court. “We were disappointed with the judge’s decision in this case and have challenged his decision,” a spokesman for the agency said. “This hearing is due to take place on the 7th of April. It would not be appropriate to comment further while these proceedings are ongoing.” A decision on the matter is not expected to be announced on Monday. Snoop was also barred from entering Australia because of his extensive criminal history.
