Harkat fighting deportation order

Lawyers still appealing security certificate decision


 

Mohamed Harkat, the Ottawa resident who was arrested eight years ago under suspicion of terrorist activity, was served with deportation papers on Friday. Harkat was apprehended under a security certificate, a controversial legal tool that allows the detainment of suspected foreign nationals considered to be security threats based on secret evidence that is unavailable to the accused. The deportation order, which would return Harkat, 42, to Algeria, comes at a time when his lawyers are still appealing the security certificate ruling, arguing that it may violate the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Harkat’s lawyer, Matthew Webber, said “while they may be serving the paperwork, we fully expect and are confident the Canadian government respects due process.” Harkat, who worked in Ottawa as a gas station attendant and a pizza deliveryman, claims he fled Algeria and worked with a Pakistani aid organization before immigrating.

  1. Wow – what is going on at the CBC? Nine out of ten comments are cheering get him out, sooner the better and take his lawyer with him.

    The tide really must be turning in how people view refugee claiments.

  3. I guess his wife (who fits the profile of a fat, otherwise-undesireable Man of Colour-chaser to the 'T') will have to find herself a new squeeze. She might want to pick up this book:

    (The gist is basically 'Western women are desperate sluts–and, hence, desireable–but they have to respect the Ethnic Man's cultural prudery.')

    • Adam, Am I missing something here ?…What has this got to do with the deportation of Harkat ? Except degrade his wife and Western women ?

      • A Western woman who isn't very attractive can get a better-looking, younger guy…who's a terrorist looking for a Canadian passport. Harkat's doting wife is too dumb and desperate to see that this guy married her for her citizenship.

        The 'Dating the Ethnic Man' is really an appalling book. It promotes the idea that 'ethnic' (read non-Christian Men of Colour) are attracted to Western women, because they think they're easy; however, the Western woman who landed this great catch has to respect her Ethnic Man's mysogeny and machisimo. The author-cum-'multicultural sex therapist' flogged this piece of garbage on the talkshow circuit in Canada, without one female interviewer saying "you pr!ck!" Amazing how the most vile sexist tripe can get acclaim, if wrapped in multiculti cover. The cover even features an illustration of a blue-eyed, blonde , presumably xenophile chick…I suspect Wendy 'Diversity Institute' Cukier was the artist's model–she certainly fits the fat, white chick who marries terrorists profile (maybe she'll propose to Omar Khadr).

        • Thanks for the book review…now what about Harkat and the deportation order?

  6. It's about time, should have happened years ago.

  9. @Adam. It is a quite interesting point of view. Perhaps lack of self respect among western women and desperation in seeking of being accepted as they are lead unattractive western female to seek a partner among attractive ethnic males.
    That makes easier for terrorist scum to get Canadian (or other western country) passport.
    It is amazing how low self-respect have unattractive western females when they get married with ethnic muslim who treats them like piece of s***t …..

  11. The reason why Julian Assange has struck such a responsive chord with his WikiLeaks is because there's a lot of secrecy and very little privacy. If Mohammed Harkat was a Hollywood celebrity, the Ministry of Justice could rely on the National Inquirer to gather all its intelligence, with the public having access to every little quirk and fetish that Harkat has. With a security certificate, the Ministry of Justice can compile secret information on anyone and jail or deport that individual. It might take some intrepid journalist like a reporter for the National Inquirer, or Julian Assange, to bring any exculpatory evidence for people like Mohammed Harkat to light. And if the federal government can issue security certificates, why couldn't the provinces do the same? Why couldn't the Ontario Ministry of Justice use security certificates to detain indefinitely suspected anarchists from Quebec, or even deport them to a third country like the United States? The reason why I pose this question is because, with something as vague as security certificates, who knows what abuses they could lead to?

  13. Thanks for the book review…now what about Harkat and the deportation order?

  14. The endless costs of dealing with terror-related cases is a small price to pay for the joys of "muticulturalism", don't you agree? Isn't it fun always having to worry about thousands and thousands of foreign radicals in our cities? Much better than boring old Judeo-Christian Canada!
