Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the hon. member for his question and the interest he and other members have shown.
In his question, he alluded to the fact that the Immigration Act has a section which permits the government to remove senior officials and persons of any government that were part of serious human rights violations and atrocities. The government has confirmed that the Barre regime was one of those governments.
When the story broke on this individual I instructed my officials to collect the information from Nairobi where the application originated. We have now compiled the necessary information and I have instructed my officials to immediately write a report which will trigger an immigration inquiry before
an independent adjudicator. As the member knows, anyone who is found to have violated the act or broken any laws will be the subject of a removal.
