Canada terror plot raises questions on deportation
A court decided Jaser should be allowed to stay because he was stateless Palestinian and there was nowhere to send him.
Toronto: Canada's immigration minister says he is reviewing the country's deportation policies following revelations that a court decided nine years ago against deporting a man who was arrested last week on terror charges.
Raed Jaser came to Canada with his family as a teenager in 1993. Court records indicate he was unable to obtain Canadian citizenship because of criminal convictions including acts of fraud in 1997. Federal authorities tried to deport him in 2004. But a court decided Jaser should be allowed to stay because he was stateless Palestinian and there was nowhere to send him.
Federal Immigration Minister Jason Kenney said on Friday he'll get a briefing on the issue. Jaser, 35, and Chiheb Esseghaier, 30, have been charged with plotting to derail a train.
