CANADA RELEASES NAMES OF 30 WAR CRIMINALS
Take no action to apprehend these war criminals yourself. Report any information to the Border Watch Line at 1 888 502-9060
Canada Border Services Agency have released the names and photos of 30 men wanted for war crimes, believed to be hiding out across Canada.
The individuals have been accused of war crimes or crimes against humanity and are listed as subjects of Canada-wide warrants for removal from the country. They have been declared inadmissible to Canada for violation of human and international rights under the Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes Act or similar international law.
The last known residence of 21 of the men is in the Greater Toronto Area, four in Montreal, three in Alberta and one each in Ottawa and Kitchener.
“We hope that reaching out to the public today will enhance the ability of the CBSA and its partner organizations to effectively deal with persons complicit in these acts,” said Luc Portelance, president of the border agency.
Mr. Portelance, along with Vic Toews, minister of public safety and Jason Kenney, minister of citizenship, immigration and multiculturalism, announced the release of the list at a press conference Thursday morning at the Canada Border Services Agency’s enforcement headquarters near the airport in Toronto.
“We all have a part to play in making our communities safe, and today we are asking for Canadians’ assistance,” said Minister Toews. “In releasing the names of individuals, who are residing illegally in Canada and who are complicit in committing war crimes and crimes against humanity, it is our hope that new information will help our law-enforcement officials track them down and remove them from Canada.”
It is part of a public campaign to find those who came to Canada from abroad who are suspected of engaging in crimes against humanity, war crimes and genocide in their homelands. Many came to Canada and claimed refugee status.
CBSA officials have previously refused to name suspected war criminals publicly.
