A Fijian man resident in New Zealand says he hopes the country's new Immigration Minister will intervene to stop the deportation of his intellectually disabled son.

20 year old Sagar Narayan has been told he has until Friday to leave New Zealand after his residency application was turned down.

His father says he has no relatives to look after him back in Fiji and fears he may not survive if forced to go back.
