Federal government goes after 32 more foreign fugitives

Canada Border Services Agency website enlists public to help

The federal government is enlisting the public’s help in identifying and detaining people wanted on immigration warrants, the CBC reports. Public Safety Minister Vic Toews revealed the government’s plan Thursday, one that focuses on arresting 32 foreign fugitives believed to be hiding in the Toronto area. These 32 are in addition to the previously released list of 30 fugitives determined to have violated the Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes Act. The government launched the website in July with descriptions and photos of the fugitives, calling for any information of their whereabouts. Toews says the suspects have been convicted of criminal offenses in Canada and were to be removed from the country prior to their disappearance.
